The Cycle World Joseph C. Parkhurst Education Auction is Coming to AIMExpo

AIMExpo and National Powersports Auction (NPA) are teaming up to bring a live auction to AIMExpo benefiting the Cycle World Joseph C. Parkhurst Education Fund program at the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, home of Ride for Kids (RFK). This live auction will be held Thursday, October 15th at AIMExpo.


Brain tumors are one of the deadliest forms of childhood cancer. Kids who do survive often face lifelong challenges, and the high cost of surgery and treatment make it tough for their families to pay for college.

That’s where the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation comes in. In addition to funding medical research to find a cure for this devastating disease, the PBTF also gives college scholarships to brain tumor survivors.

Cycle World is a proud partner of the PBTF and its Ride for Kids program. For the past 11 years, Cycle World has also sponsored the annual Cycle World Joseph C. Parkhurst Education Auction to fund scholarships.

AIMExpo and National Powersports Auction (NPA) are teaming up to bring a live auction to AIMExpo benefiting the Cycle World Joseph C. Parkhurst Education Fund program at the PBTF, home of Ride for Kids (RFK). This live auction will be held Thursday, October 15th, in the OCCC lobby right after the show closes. Unique and one-of-a-kind motorcycle memorabilia will be available for bidding.
