BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — Backcountry Lifeline and The 139 Fund are teaming up to raffle a Specialized Levo Comp 6Fattie, as well as other prizes, to benefit The 139 Fund, which helps support BCLL’s ongoing efforts in mountain bike safety.

Specialized is supporting the fundraiser for the second year in a row, along with sponsors Maxxis, Yeti, Smith, Osprey and Muc-Off.

“We couldn’t do what we do without our sponsors,” BCLL co-founder Bonnie McDonald said. “Their support has been integral to our mission. Every time we talk to them, they say ‘We love what you’re doing; it’s the right thing to do; how can we help?’ Helping us raise money through the giveaway is just another way they’re leading by example, trying to help make mountain biking safer.”

Raffle tickets cost $10 and give a chance to win over $9,000 in prizing including products from Maxxis, Smith, Osprey and POC, in addition to the grand prize from Specialized. Each prize comes with a custom BCLL first aid fanny pack kit.

Tickets are available until Dec. 10 at
