Villipoto & Ferry to support Seattle fundraising event
The second annual Supercross Triple Charity for Children’s Hospital
& Regional Medical Center is scheduled for the last week of April
in conjunction with the Amp’d Mobile Supercross race at Qwest Field,
and Washington native Ryan Villopoto and Kawasaki teammate Timmy Ferry
will make a special appearance to support the fundraising event.
Villopoto and Ferry will be joined by top stars who will be in town for
the Amp’d Mobile World Supercross GP/Amp’d Mobile AMA Supercross Series
race held on Saturday, April 28 at Seattle’s Qwest Field.
“The hope is to raise money for a good cause and to bring something fun
for the kids,” said Villopoto, who recently won his first Western
Regional AMA Supercross Lites title. “Washington is home for me, and to
be able to give back to Children’s Hospital is a special opportunity
for me and my family. I hope the entire racing community will support
Building on the momentum garnered at last year’s inaugural event, event
organizers MX for Children and Live Nation Motor Sports hope to raise
$75,000 for Children’s Hospital & Regional Medical Center, which is
fifty percent more than the amount raised a year ago.
The top fundraisers will be treated to the Inside Line Experience, an
exclusive meet and greet with Villopoto, Ferry and the rest of the top
riders. The entire supercross industry has stepped up to support the
event with an abundance of unique items and signed memorabilia that
will be put for giveaway or auction, including the grand prize Team
Makita Suzuki RMZ-250, for which the winning ticket will be drawn on
Saturday night at Qwest Field. An additional event will be held at
Renton Motorcycles, where top supercross riders will be on hand signing
