The 9th Annual DMXS Charity Ride4AT Raises $17,000Tuesday, February 28, 2012 | 9:30 AM
The 9th Annual DMXS Charity Ride4AT at Amp MX raised more than $17,000 on a beautiful February day following the always exciting Atlanta SX. This brings our total to over $225,000 to fund research for Ataxia Talangiectasia, a rare and debilitating childhood disease. We know one of these dollars will eventually be the one that finds a cure, and we appreciate all those that attended this year’s event and supported a great cause.
The charity ride is so dependent on the generosity of volunteers and our industry friends and we want to especially thank Fox’s Todd Hicks and Beeker for their many consecutive years of assistance. We’ve been fortunate enough to have the Ride4AT patch run proudly on some of Fox’s top riders, including KTM’s Ryan Dungey and Ken Roczen this year in Atlanta. We sincerely appreciate all that they do for the sport and our charity ride.
On a very special note, we would like to express our sincere admiration for Sharon Richards, Joanne Pryor, Christina Denney, Jammi Robertson, Dave Prater and FELD for their tireless help every year. Their support since the beginning has made all the difference in the world. The industry embraces our event each year and we’d also like to thank all the riders, teams and gear reps that donated gear for the auction.
Our sponsors, donors and friends: Racer X, FOX, Golden State Foods, Amp MX, Regina, SunStar, Roost MX, Thor, Mountain Motorsports, Answer, MX Sports, Kenny Watson, H&H, Vital MX, Shift, Pro Circuit, OGIO, ONE, Tucker Rocky, Concept 2 Rowers, Coach Robb Beams, Matt Shue, 96.1’s World of Lewis, and MTV’s Maci Bookout.
