The Inside Line Experience has raised more than $110,000 in Seattle during its first two years while running on conjunction with supercross. MX for Children and Live Nation Motor Sports inc., hope to see funds raised that would equal that total in 2008. All funds raised during the event will benefit Seattle’s Children’s Hospital & Regional Medical Center and their research for hydrocephalus, the leading cause of brain surgery in children.
Top riders from Honda Red Bull Racing and Joe Gibbs Racing Motocross will take part in a pre-race charity event at Children’s Hospital & Regional Medical Center on Thursday, April 24, at noon. The top fundraisers will be treated to the Inside Line Experience, an exclusive meet and greet with the riders, who will also spend quality time with children at the hospital.
“The Inside Line Experience has been an overwhelming success in its first two years,” said Paul Gross, MX for Children founder. “Live Nation and the entire sport of supercross has been very supportive of our cause. We have not only raised a substantial amount of money for hydrocephalus research, but we’ve raised awareness, which is invaluable.”
The Inside Line Experience rewards the top 10 individual fundraisers with a Seattle VIP meet and greet where they are treated to exclusive experiences including watching a private race practice, touring of a factory rig, walking the supercross track and getting premium seats.
The entire supercross industry continues 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, 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 autographs.
Pledge forms can be picked up and raffle tickets may be purchased at participating Suzuki dealers or online at the official website www.mxforchildren.org.
