MX for Children Expands Supercross Charity Events
St. Louis and Salt Lake City Supercross Races Added to Fundraising Schedule
Feld Motor Sports announced today plans to expand the partnership between Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, and MX for Children, a leading North American Supercross charity. In 2011, MX for Children’s Inside Line Experience will offer fundraising opportunities for children’s hospitals in North America and an behind-the-scenes experience at Monster Energy Supercross in St. Louis on April 9 and Salt Lake City on April 30. These additional events complement the existing Inside Line Experience events at Houston, Toronto and Seattle.
“I have supported MX for Children over the past four years because it is a great cause.” said Andrew Short, of Team KTM. “Seeing kids raise money to help sick kids and what these hospitals do for kids is very rewarding as a rider and a parent.”
The two new MX for Children’s Inside Line Experience stops, which present an exclusive backstage pass to Monster Energy Supercross for top fundraisers, will benefit Children’s Hospital of St. Louis and Primary Children’s Medical Center in Salt Lake City.
MX for Children has raised more than $500,000 for children’s hospitals in North American since it was founded in 2006. Fundraisers are motivated to help children by advancing research for hydrocephalus — the #1 cause of brain surgery for kids. MX for Children supported hospitals, recognized as some of the world’s foremost pediatric health-care institutions, are dedicated to advancing children’s health through the integration of patient care and clinical research, in several cities on the Supercross circuit.
