PORTLAND, Maine — State Rep. Meredith Strang Burgess led the successful push for breast cancer specialty license plates for cars and trucks in Maine.
Now she’s hoping to do the same thing for motorcycles.
The proposal for pink ribbon motorcycle license plates calls for proceeds to be split between the Maine Cancer Foundation’s Women’s Cancer Fund, Maine Breast Cancer Coalition’s Support Service Fund, and the Maine Breast and Cervical Health Program’s mammogram fund.
More than $400,000 for breast cancer research and support has been raised through the sale of more than 15,000 specialty plates for cars and trucks since 2008.
Burgess hopes to have the motorcycle plate process completed by this spring, assuming at least 500 riders pay $25 to reserve one of the plates.
