Following its mantra, “Female Motorcyclists… Fueling the Future of Motorcycling,” WCM, Inc. has provided $2000.00 in scholarship funds, powered by Cycle Gear, to Girlz MotoCamps by Shelina Moreda. This will pave the way for 2 candidates to attend the rider training camp this May 2016 during the Memorial Day weekend in harmony with International Women’s Ride Month. This funding will be directed towards underprivileged females of high school age and younger.

As part of the application process, a candidate must be willing to share, in her own words, why she aspires to train through Girlz MotoCamp and what she would like to do with her new found motorcycle skills upon completion of her instruction. Interested candidates are encouraged to apply at http://goo.gl/forms/IUT59j8MhZ.
