Bikers for Boobies AZ began its existence almost 12 years ago. Shelley Martin, President of Bikers for Boobies, wanted to create something to help those diagnosed with breast cancer. It was October, and it was that time of year when lots of pink was starting to appear to bring awareness to the “cause.”
She brought her idea to her co-workers at The Dirty Dogg Saloon in Scottsdale, Arizona. Jack Estes, our Vice President and owner of The Dirty Dogg, thought it would be great to create a charity motorcycle ride, (called a poker run) that would raise money for those battling breast cancer. A few short weeks from that time, the 1st Bikers for Boobies Motorcycle run happened. There were 100 bikes that first year and our numbers have only grown from there. In 2014, we had over 1500 bikes and raised over $60,000 and have been growing ever since. By 2018 Bikers for Boobies has donated over $455,000 to our community.
In 2013, Bikers for Boobies AZ was able to achieve official status as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization with the IRS.
In the years of existence, Bikers for Boobies has provided charitable donations to organizations including Casting for Recovery, M.O.M (Mobile Onsite Mammography) and Singleton Moms, Froth and Bubble, Don’t be a Chump Check for a Lump and many more. Bikers for Boobies AZ has also been able to donate many mammograms for local women through M.O.M. You can click on our Resources page to learn more.
Our vision is to promote education and awareness to anyone seeking information for themselves, or a loved one, diagnosed with cancer. We will assist anyone with cancer any cancer with emphasis on Breast Cancer Battling cancer. Any cancer is a scary time. So many questions and uncertainties slap you right in the face. We are here to help those in need and fighting.

We raise money and we ride, and we celebrate those that have looked cancer in the eye and stared it down and won. We also celebrate the lives of those that fought hard but are no longer with us. We party, we raffle off a motorcycle, and we also raffle off some other crazy items, ALL in an effort to raise money for those that need it.
