The Road 2 Recovery Foundation is a 501-(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to helping the Supercross and Motocross athletes. One goal at the Road 2 Recovery would be to completely provide for a professional rider for the duration of their life if they are unable to generate revenue again. We can strive towards this goal with the help of everyone in the motocross community who is passionate about this sport. The Road 2 Recovery is out there to make our sport a better safer place. www.road2recovery.com
The Action Sports Medicine Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to enhance the quality and availability of sports medicine to athletes participating in action sports. The foundation was formed in 2003 by Dr. Steve Augustine, and is based out of the Jacksonville Orthopedic Institute in Florida. Our desire is to become a quality resource for athletes who are looking to receive sports medicine on-site services, and for the various health care workers who are looking to help provide these services. The primary sports that we will be serving are motocross, BMX, skateboarding, wakeboarding and surfing. Within this population, we will focus on the amateur athlete. Our goal is to enhance the level of on-site sports medical care at the grass roots level. In doing so, we can enable the athletes to maximize their capabilities and participation in their chosen sports. Secondarily, we feel confident that we can raise the level of understanding of these sports within the medical community, thus enabling other health care practitioners to better deal with the needs of this unique group of athletes. www.asmfjax.com and www.joionline.net.
