Two Flagstaff Residents To Ride Small Motorcycles Across Arizona For Charity
In June, Flagstaff residents Eva Rupert and Josh Remer will be riding vintage 100cc motorcycles across the state of Arizona to raise money for Blood:Water Mission, a Nashville non-profit that builds HIV/AIDS clinics and clean water wells in Africa. Both Josh and Eva are avid motorcyclists and wanted a way to use what they love to make a difference in the world. They see their ride as a more exciting version of a walk-a-thon. Josh and Eva are actively fundraising for the event and will be appearing at the Overland Expo in Mormon Lake, AZ, May 16-18.
Josh will be riding a 1972 Honda CB100 and has spent the last few years working with non-profit organizations and is passionate about the role they play in the world. He is presently an MBA candidate at Northern Arizona University.
Eva will be riding a 1969 Honda CL90 and is a primitive survival expert and tattoo artist at Birch Avenue Tattoo in Flagstaff. She recently appeared on the Discovery Chanel show Naked and Afraid.
