For those of you that don’t know:
Molly-Dharma Run – since 2007

• The Molly-Dharma Run (MDR) began in 2007 to benefit MaxFund, a No-Kill Animal Shelter in Denver, Colorado.
• This motorcycle ride event was named for Molly-Dharma, a very large, intimidating dog, who had many issues to overcome before she could be adopted, and who was kept at MaxFund for over two and a half years before Kirk Zimmerman adopted her. Ken Mann walked Molly at MaxFund and introduced her to Kirk when she looked, and acted, like she wanted to rip him to pieces. It was touch and go in the beginning, very difficult. Kirk and Ken co-founded this event in Molly’s honor for MaxFund in 2007, … and have done this event every year since. Read her story, and hear her story, on the MDR website www.Molly-DharmaRun.org and follow her event on Facebook at Molly-Dharma Annual Motorcycle Run. Molly turned 12 in September of 2015, and crossed the Rainbow Bridge in 2016.
• R.I.P. Ms. Molly-Dharma 9/01/2003 – 8/19/2016
• In 2012, the Molly-Dharma Run became a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in its own right, in order to promote and help other shelters in Denver and Colorado.
• Gratitude is what this ride is all about. Gratitude from Molly for finding her forever home, gratitude to all the rescue organizations and their volunteers, who work so hard and make it possible to find forever homes for the countless dogs and cats still in shelters! We hope that you will consider adopting your next pet from a shelter … perhaps one that the MDR has supported.
• This event is about using Molly and her story to Pay It Forward … promoting and helping worthy animal rescue organizations, especially the smaller ones, to find forever homes for all the animals in their care! The MaxFund benefited from the MDR for 6 years. In 2013, Intermountain Humane Society benefited, in 2014 Humane Society of South Platte Valley benefited, in 2015 Every Creature Counts benefited, in 2016 Evergreen Animal Protection League benefited, and in 2017 Planet Pet of Denver benefited from this event. We hope to find other special shelters each year, and we hope you have a great time on this ride for this year’s very deserving rescue organization. Sadly, the Every Creature Counts shelter has closed.

• This year, we’ll be holding a drawing to award the proceeds from the 12th Annual Molly-Dharma Run to one of the four animal shelters that have benefited over the past 5 years.
