Mecum Auction set for July 27 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee (July 21, 2014)Jack Broomall holds eight different motorcycle land speed records, set at the world-famous Bonneville Salt Flats on a variety of bikes. The records are cherished, as are the machines. But Broomall won’t think twice about auctioning his BMW S1000RR later this month, as a donation to the Austin Hatcher Foundation (AHF) for Pediatric Cancer.

Broomall, you see, has a special link to the Foundation that goes beyond being a fundraiser, as a close friend of AHF founders Jim and Amy Jo Osborn. In the autumn of 2006, Broomall witnessed the short life of the Osborns’ infant son, Austin Hatcher Osborn, a life cut short by an aggressive cancer. It was a tragedy that led to the Osborns forming the Foundation, with the over-arching mission to erase the effects of pediatric cancer.
