Yamaha Helps Raise $9,000 for Wish I Could Foundation
CYPRESS, Calif. - Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A., donated a Grizzly 700 ATV to the Wish I Could of Northeast Louisiana, Inc. (WIC) foundation helping raise $9,230 for the charity at the annual Marengo Swamp Run in Hebert, La., on June 4.
The annual event, which raises money mainly through entry fees and private donations, helps fund the WIC mission of granting wishes of terminally ill children in Northeast Louisiana.
Yamaha has donated an ATV each of the past eight years helping to raise more than $50,000 – money that pays for the WIC annual kids’ Christmas party. The WIC Foundation has in total raised more than $400,000 in the same time to help make kids’ wishes come true.
“Yamaha is proud to support Wish I Could and its cause of helping terminally ill children,” said Mike Martinez, general manager of Yamaha’s ATV & SxS vehicle group. “Yamaha also congratulates Ricky Rollins for winning the Grizzly 700 ATV, and thanks everyone who purchased a $5 raffle ticket. That money goes directly to WIC and the kids.”
