SPEARFISH, SD, Aug. 12 /CNW/ - Lehman Trikes proudly announces that Jon
Brough of Belleville, IL is the 2008 Good Turn Trike recipient. Jon and his
wife Wendy had their world changed forever on November 10, 2006 when Jon, a
police officer, was shot in the face with a 12-gauge shotgun. Jon's survival
was uncertain and, in addition to losing his sight, much of his face had to be
surgically reconstructed. Jon still has numerous surgeries in his future; but,
he doesn't let that affect the way he lives his life. He is bright, funny and
still fulfills numerous speaking engagements every year. Jon is one of those
rare, unique, and brave individuals who risked his life and paid a high price
while serving as a police officer.
The Good Turn Trike is an annual program sponsored by Lehman Trikes that
converts the recipient's motorcycle into a trike. The recipient normally can
no longer ride a two-wheeled motorcycle due to an injury and/or illness.
Annually, applications for the program are accepted by Lehman Trikes until the
first week of April. Applications are available at Lehman dealers and Lehman
Trikes website, www.lehmantrikes.com. Applications are reviewed by an
anonymous panel and a recipient is then selected.
Niehaus Cycle Sales, Inc. in Litchfield, IL, an authorized Lehman Trike
dealer, is doing the conversion on Jon's new black 2008 Honda GL1800 Gold
Wing. The new motorcycle was purchased with funds collected by the Blue
Knights International Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club, Inc. and specifically
through the hard work of Illinois Chapter 14. Jon and Wendy will take
possession of the trike on August 23, 2008 at a celebration ceremony at
Niehaus Cycle Sales, Inc. Wendy will be driving the trike once it is completed
and she and Jon look forward to riding many miles together.
Dan Patterson, CEO of Lehman Trikes stated, "Lehman's proudest moments
are measured by the smiles we put on the faces of our Good Turn Trike
recipients. We are proud to say that we are the only trike company in the
industry to have such a program and we truly receive much more than we give as
a result of our philanthropic endeavors. Good Turn Trike gives us the
opportunity to help an individual like Jon, who possesses such zest for
living. He indeed is a wonderful inspiration to all of us. Lehman Trikes is
proud of its role in making sure that Jon once again will enjoy riding with
the wind and sun on his face."
