The event's mastermind, Frank Pain (AKA FMX's Painman), will be in the Hub City to promote his epic 2,200-mile motorcycle ride across 11 Texas cities is set to raise funds for minority scholarships. And that means he'll be chilling with our listeners.
Here's everything you need to know about the Ride for Change, including its kickoff in Lubbock.
You Can Ride With The Painman
94.5 FMX radio personality and all-around swell dude Frank Pain (AKA Painman) wants you (yes, we're pointing our fingers at you through your smart phone or computer screen) to ride alongside him as he visits 11 cities across Texas and Oklahoma to raise funds for minority scholarships.
All you have to do is sign this waiver and either email it directly to him (firstname.lastname@example.org) or print it out and drop it off at the FMX studio (4413 82nd Street, Suite 300).

In addition to BurgerFi in Lubbock kicking in some change from the sale of every CEO Burger, there's a simple way for each and every person who wants to make a difference to help, too. Hit up the GoFundMe page and donate whatever you can. Every bit helps us hit our goal of $11,000.
Where to Hang Out With Painman in Lubbock
Painman has a busy day once he's in Lubbock, which means there are a few places you'll be able to swing by and say 'hi' on Monday, September 14th. There will also be giveaways and swag.
Here's a rundown of where he'll be and when:
There's a Killer Ride for Change Riding Vest
Painman will be walking into Wild West Harley Davidson in Lubbock wearing this bad boy. Riding vests help bikers represent motorcycle clubs or other causes. We may be biased, but the cause behind The Ride for Change really is an important one. We know you want a Ride for Change vest of your own. Painman's is one-of-a-kind...for now.
