Motosport.com’s deep involvement in motorcycle racing gives them a unique opportunity to give back to the sport of passion and inherent danger.
Since 2008 Motosport.com has been matching their customer’s $1 donations, dollar-for-dollar up to $40,000 every year. Through the generosity of their customers and their dollar-for-dollar match, Motosport.com has been able to give the RiderDown Foundation (http://www.riderdown.org) $149,843 to-date!
“You guys have been so supportive of RiderDown and our mission it’s hard for me to put into words how much of a difference you have made!” Bruce Vermeulen, RiderDown Foundation Board Member.
Seeing the positive impact of the RiderDown/Motosport.com relationship has propelled Motosport.com to find additional avenues of assisting and protecting motorcycle and ATV racing enthusiasts.
“The emotional and financial support RiderDown has been able to give injured riders has had a positive impact in many lives that go beyond the riders themselves. At Motosport, we are pleased to extend our support to two additional foundations that will help us broaden our outreach.” Bill Butcher, Founder and CEO of Motosport.com.
Motosport.com has joined forces with the Road 2 Recovery Foundation (http://www.road2recovery.com) to give assistance much like the RiderDown Foundation, but in the professional supercross and motocross racing series.
“The Road 2 Recovery Foundation is dedicated to helping professional AMA licensed motocross/supercross members with financial assistance if they sustain career-ending injuries as well as providing motivational, emotional, and spiritual support to these individuals and their families.”
The Road 2 Recovery Foundation was co-founded by Jimmy Button, a former professional motocross/supercross rider that was critically injured while racing. Button defied the doctors’ prediction of paralysis and has started walking again. His inspirational recovery against all odds captures the spirit of Motosport.com. Motosport.com is proud to announce a partnership with the Road 2 Recovery Foundation to help spread his message of hope.
In addition to supporting off road riders, Motosport.com has additionally partnered with the Roadracing World Action Fund (http://actionfund.roadracingworld.com) to help support their promotion of road racing safety. The Action Fund is a key promoter of the Airfence, soft-walled safety barriers placed at road racing tracks and dirt tracks around the world. Motosport.com believes in the Action Fund’s mission in preventing race track injuries and support of safe racing education.
Specifically, the Roadracing World Action Fund advocates and promotes the use of soft barriers to prevent racetrack injuries, and provides education on the value of adequate pre-race practice, rider training, and proper racetrack preparations… also addresses other health and safety education issues concerning motorcycle racing…”
Motosport.com will continue their commitment to the RiderDown foundation – which is devoted to assisting responsible off road motorcyclists and ATV racers who have been injured while riding.
