July is Women’s Motorcycle Month, and Janet Barnard, Cox Automotive’s president of inventory solutions, is no stranger to a bike. Earlier this year, she helped support the Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America. Sponsored by Manheim, this is one of the most successful and popular charity rides in the country that raised more than $1 million through its 22nd anniversary motorcycle trek The ride benefits Victory Junction, a camp dedicated to providing life-changing camping experiences for children with chronic or life-threatening illnesses.

Former NASCAR driver and NBC Sports racing analyst Kyle Petty led 200 bikers on a 2,150-mile route, traveling from Palm Springs to Biloxi on April 30 to May 6, to raise funds and awareness for the camp.

As a result of this year’s Ride alone, 100 children will attend Victory Junction at no cost to their families. The camp has served as the Ride’s primary beneficiary since its establishment by Petty and his family in 2004 in honor of his late son, Adam.

Celebrities, ride sponsors, motorcycle enthusiasts, fans and local communities all generously came together to raise funds and awareness for the camp. Since 1995, more than 7,950 riders have logged more than 11.6 million cumulative motorcycle miles and raised $17.5 million for Victory Junction and other children’s charities.
