Short & Millsaps to Visit Children’s Hospital April 26
Honda’s Andrew Short and Davi Millsaps lead the list of the world’s top
Amp’d Mobile Supercross riders who will participate April 26 in the
second annual Supercross Triple Charity for Children’s Hospital &
Regional Medical Center. The fund-raising event will culminate on
Saturday, April 28 at Seattle’s Qwest Field at the final round of the
Amp’d Mobile World Supercross GP/Amp’d Mobile AMA Supercross Series.
Organized by MX for Children in conjunction with Live Nation Motor
Sports, the charity event hopes to raise $75,000 for Children’s
Hospital & Regional Medical Center through a variety of
supercross-related giveaways and celebrity rider meet and greets.
“This event not only raises money for the hospital but also for cutting
edge brain research,” said Paul Gross, creator of MX for Children and
organizer of the event. “Along with spending quality time with the kids
at the hospital, Andrew, Davi and the rest of the racers will host top
fundraisers at an exclusive photo and autograph session as part of the
Inside Line Experience.”
In addition to the Inside Line Experience, organizers have garnered
several items that will be put up for giveaway or auction, including
the grand prize Team Makita Suzuki RMZ-250 with the winning ticket will
be drawn on Saturday night at Qwest Field. Event sponsor Renton
Motorcycles will host top supercross riders for an autograph session
that will include a silent auction, with an abundance of industry goods
and signed memorabilia.
“I feel privileged to be able to participate in such a fine event,”
said Short. “The event was a success in its first run last year and I
hope that with Team Honda’s participation we can continue its growth
and raise more money for the children.”
Pledge forms can be picked up and raffle tickets may be purchased at
