Unadilla Fans Come Through for Ernesto and The IconMonday, July 17, 2006 | 12:51 PM
Yesterday at Unadilla Valley Sports Center, the Racer X booth was swamped with motocross fans hoping to donate a few dollars to Ernesto Fonseca, who is rehabbing from devastating injury in Colorado, and former champion David Bailey, who's own health took a turn for the worse in the past few months. The Unadilla fans snatched up more than 300 of the red Ernesto Powerbands at $5 each, and all of the money will go directly to Fonseca's recovery. Also, with the help of One Industries, we were able to give everyone who wanted to throw in a dollar or two or five or more a David Bailey sticker. By the end of the day, $2116.55 was in the bucket, and that will go directly to Bailey via www.fullcirclefoundation.com.
Well done, Unadilla. The other side rules!
