LAS VEGAS, NV – The Rockstar Energy/Hart & Huntington Race team has paired up with Brad Pitt’s Make It Right Foundation for the New Orleans Supercross race at the Superdome on March 14, 2009. The team will be wearing pink race gear as well as riding pink bikes to support the Foundation’s Pink Project.
The Pink Project came about to help raise awareness of the Make It Right Foundation’s goal of rebuilding the lower 9th ward that was left devastated by Hurricane Katrina. The color pink is to symbolize hope.
“The race team really wanted to show their support to the Make It Right Foundation and dedicate their riding to the city of New Orleans. Hurricane Katrina hit in August 2005 and there is still a lot of rebuilding needed. We want to make sure that people don’t forget about what happened and continue to support the city in its rebuilding efforts,” said race team owner Carey Hart. “It seemed like a perfect fit to team up with The Pink Project.”
