On July 26, 2014, Bruce Barnes was critically injured while volunteering at Washougal Motocross Park. Family and friends gathered by his hospital bed and prayed for his recovery. A Gofundme page was set up in the days following his accident and quickly grew to over $29,000 within a few days.
Bruce was humbled by the outpouring of both emotional and financial support from people across the country and vowed that he would be "Paying it Forward" in the future.
As he recovered, Bruce began thinking of what he could do to make an impact and help those that had helped him. He began calling on his friends throughout the motocross industry to share with them his vision of a fundraiser. As the word spread, friends and business owners stepped up to donate to the cause.
The motorcycle, a custom 2015 Kawasaki KX250F, will be awarded to one lucky ticket holder on September 20.
Tickets can be purchased directly from Bruce or through this site. All of the proceeds will be donated towards an equipment donation for the medics at the Washougal MX track, Asterisk Mobile Medical, the IBEW Injured Workers Fund, and the Brandon Layton Memorial Fund.
So, buy some tickets for the chance to win this awesome bike and support some amazing non profit organizations at the same time.
