#06NR15 - Motorcycle Riders Foundation President Resigns

MRF President Karen Bolin tendered her resignation to the MRF Board of Directors last evening citing several serious health issues as the reason.

Kirk “Hardtail” Willard who is the current Vice President of the MRF will assume the role as interim President until the scheduled elections in September are held.

“We are obviously deeply saddened and concerned in hearing this news. The Motorcycle Riders Foundation and the entire motorcycle community owes Karen a great deal of gratitude for her service over the years and on behalf of the MRF our thoughts and best wishes go out to her, said Kirk”
