Fans Encouraged to Join Riders in a Show of Support by Wearing PINK
After a successful first event in 2008, the Steel City breast cancer fundraiser returns to the season finale for 2009, highlighted by The Mystery Rider Auction. With top name riders like Ryan Dungey, Andrew Short, Ryan Villopoto and Ashley Fiolek all donating their exclusive mystery items, the auction is sure to be a hit with the fans. These charitable riders will not only be donating an item but will also match the sale price of their item up to $1000.00 in support for the cure. The auction is scheduled to take place during the intermission between the first and second set of motos.
In addition to the auction, a variety of other activities are scheduled for the Labor Day fund-raising event. A raffle will be held throughout race day on September 5th at the Breast Cancer booth. Fans will have the opportunity to win exclusive autographed memorabilia donated by athletes and supporters of the industry. Raffle winners will be announced prior to the final moto of the day. Those who attend the event wearing an item of Pink clothing will be awarded one free raffle ticket. Additionally, fans can show their support by wearing a limited edition Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship Bracelet, available for pickup at the Breast Cancer and Lucas Oil booths.
All proceeds from the fundraiser support the Philadelphia Breast Cancer 3-day Walk, a 60-mile walk to raise money in the fight against the disease. The net proceeds will support the combined efforts of the Susan G. Komen Foundation for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust (NPT) Breast Cancer Fund in their mission to fund access to care and a cure for breast cancer.
