MX for Children is pleased to announce Helmets for Hydro and More!, our 4th annual Supercross/Motocross memorabilia auction benefiting hydrocephalus research at leading Children’s Hospitals including: Toronto’s SickKids, Seattle Children’s, Utah’s Primary Children’s, Children’s Hospital of Alabama, St. Louis Children’s, Pittsburgh Children’s and Houston’s Texas Children’s Hospital. The auction begins on Sept. 24 on eBay.
Supercross stars such as Chad Reed, Ashley Fiolek, Trey Canard, Kevin Windham, and PGA Golf Tour Professional Rickie Fowler have personally signed and donated helmets and other sporting memorabilia for this auction helping to continue to raise funds for hydrocephalus research -- the #1 cause of brain surgery in children which affects one million people in the United States.
“I have worked with MX for Children for multiple seasons and it has been a pleasure meeting the fans each year who raise money for such a great cause” said Trey Canard, Team Honda Muscle Milk Factory Rider. “I am happy that I am able to continue contributing to their organization by donating some of my gear for their Auction.”
MX for Children is a group of volunteers that organize fundraising events and unique experiences around the sport of Motocross and Supercross benefiting research at children’s hospitals around North America. In addition to this annual auction, MX for Children runs the Inside Line Experience pledge drive in conjunction with Supercross. All events provide a way for people who love the sport of motocross to give back to their community in a significant way.
