Brian Bentley and his team at Brian’s Harley Davidson in Langhorne Pennsylvania are putting the pedal to the metal to raise funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

The motorcycle dealership and Eastern Harley-Davidson Association has raised $18-million to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
Bentley and the young man he mentors, 18-year old William Foster, an MDA Ambassador, joined me live on the set of Eye Opener to talk about their latest goal of raising another $30,000 in the next few weeks through the retailer’s seventh annual Black and Blue Ball in Philadelphia on March1st.
Brian Bentley has raised funds for MDA since 1980.  The non-profit agency is dedicated to finding a cure by funding world-wide research for the disease that affects over 60,000 people nationwide.  MDA also provides healthcare, support services, summer camps and life-improving equipment for children living with the disease.
Foster was diagnosed with the incurable and debilitating genetic condition when he was five.  The following year, Foster was named the MDA’s Good Will Ambassador for Brian’s Harley Davidson.  His mother, Yolanda Foster, says that there was an instant connection between the dealership owner and the Foster family.
