4th Annual MX Ride for Children

Seattle, Wa - MX For Children is pleased to announce the 4th Annual MX Ride for Children, to be held August 3rd, 2008 at Pacific Raceways in Auburn, Washington. 

This will be a fun practice day at one of the top motocross tracks in the state, and will include giveaways (including an XBOX360) and professional photography by legendary MX photographer Rex Backman.  All participants will receive lunch, and riders will receive event t-shirts.  Additional event t-shirts will be available the day of the event.  Last year we had over one hundred riders, so make sure you visit www.mxforchildren.org and pre-register for the event to secure your spot!

In addition, we are collecting pledges, with the top fundraiser in both the 13 and over and 12 and under classes receiving a $500 gift card to a local Washington dealer.  Download your pledge form from our site and start collecting those pledges! 

There will be a gate fee of $10 to get in to the facility, with riders paying an additional $50 to ride.  Remember, not only do you get a full day of riding, but you will receive an event t-shirt, as well as lunch and the chance to win a door prize!

For the first time ever, MX For Children will welcome quads to the MX Ride for Children!

Pacific Raceways is under new management and the track has been revamped for better safety and more fun!  They have also added a pee wee track for the little riders, to give them a place that is suited for smaller bikes and is away form the larger, more powerful bikes.  Camping is available at Pacific Raceways for a small fee, so bring the family and make it weekend out of it!

MX For Children has raised over $134,000 to date this year for health care costs for underprivileged children and the research of hydrocephalus, the number one cause of pediatric brain surgery.  Our goal of $150,000 for the year is in sight, and we are pushing hard to make it happen!
