"I wanted to give back.

I didn't know how, and I didn't know what...But

I loved riding motorcycles."

In 1990, Harley-Davidson rider Trevor Holtan suffered 3rd and 4th degree burns to over 40% of his body when his truck went over a cliff and exploded, killing his best friend. He was determined to realize the purpose of his suffering until just four years ago, when he approached the Grossman Burn Foundation and Firefighters Quest for Burn Survivors in Southern California about hosting a charity motorcycle ride.

Coincidentally, US Marine Corps Captain and Motor City native David Kuntz, who had been assigned Motorcycle Safety Officer of his unit, had also had the idea of a poker run along SoCal's iconic PCH.

Serving alongside many reservists who are also first responders and having learned that Dr.Grossman had offered his skills and resources to the armed forces while in Kabul in 2009, he too had approached the foundations about hosting an event to benefit burn survivors.

On September 28th, 2014, in just under three months, the two co-founders and a team of committed volunteers from both organizations were able to put together the first SoCal Burn Ride.


From Calabasas to Ventura, about three hundred participants joined these motorcyclists on the road to raising funds and awareness for a cause most are fortunate enough to never have to think about on a daily basis.

Join Trevor, David, and hundreds of other motorcyclists as they ride to benefit burn survivors.

All proceeds directly go to Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation to support locally based initiatives including Survivor Services, Burn Prevention Education, Support Groups, Champ Camp and many other programs.
