MX for Children Charity Creates Season-Long Fundraiser2011-12-30 17:16
MX for Children announced today that it has once again teamed up with Feld Motor Sports® to offer fans across the country an opportunity to enjoy the Inside Line Experience – the ultimate backstage pass to the 2012 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, season. The Inside Line Experience, which includes events during supercross races in Houston, St. Louis, Toronto, Seattle, and Salt Lake City, will culminate in Las Vegas this year.
The MX for Children Jackpot Challenge raises funds for the Hydrocephalus Association, a 501(c)(3), which distributes the donations to the following children’s hospitals: Birmingham’s Children’s Hospital of Alabama, Houston’s Texas Children’s, Pittsburgh’s Children’s Hospital, Salt Lake City’s Primary Children’s, Seattle Children’s, St. Louis Children’s, and Toronto’s SickKids Hospital. The funds go to support the hospitals’ research to improve the brain condition hydrocephalus – the #1 cause of brain surgery for children.
The Inside Line Experience rewards qualifying fundraisers with a unique opportunity to walk the track, tour a team trailer, watch the race, and participate in a meet and greet with some of the top supercross racers. The Jackpot Challenge winner, recognized as the top fundraiser, will be flown to Las Vegas to get the Inside Line Experience at the Monster Energy Supercross finale at Sam Boyd Stadium on May 5.
“I've done quite a few events now with MX for Children and love helping them out,” said L&Mc Racing Honda’s Andrew Short. “It's a great cause, and being a parent myself I know how important it is to help sick kids! “
“The funds raised improve treatments for hydrocephalus, a devastating brain condition, through the research of seven great pediatric centers across North America,” said Paul Gross, MX for Children founder. “We have a lot of people who ask how they can help raise money if they do not live near one of our host cities, and with the Jackpot Challenge it allows everyone in the United States and Canada to get involved and try and earn a VIP Las Vegas supercross experience.”
“We are thrilled to once again to be teaming up with MX for Children to commemorate one lucky fundraiser for their charitable efforts,” said Dave Prater, director of supercross, Feld Motor Sports. “The Inside Line Experience supports a great cause, so we are excited to honor the nation’s top fundraiser by providing the ultimate backstage experience during the Monster Energy Supercross finals at Las Vegas’ Sam Boyd Stadium.”
