Come Meet HOF Motocross Riders And Support A Good Cause At The Breathe Easy Ride
Hall of Fame motocross champion Broc Glover needs your help. His 11 year-old son, Dayne, suffers from the progressively fatal disease cystic fibrosis, or CF. CF is a disease that gradually destroys the lungs but also affects the pancreas, liver and GI track. Currently CF has no cure but there are several daily treatments and medication that Dayne takes to improve his life. But since CF research receives no government funding Dayne’s future depends on fundraising events to further its research and help to find a cure.
On Saturday, September 14, 2013, Broc and his friends are putting together a CF Foundation fundraiser at the Del Mar Fairgrounds/Racetrack called the Breathe Easy Ride-In that is in conjunction with a weekend long motorcycling event known as the “Celebration of the Motorcycle.”
The day will include meeting many of motorcycle racing’s greatest legends such as 4-time World Road Racing Champion Eddie Lawson, World MX Champion Danny LaPorte, Hall of Fame Motocross/Supercross Champions Rick Johnson, David Bailey and Jeff Ward, plus many, many more. There’s even rumor that 1981 & ’82 World Speedway Champion and past CHiPS TV star Bruce Penhall is coming along with Red Bull New Year No Limits daredevil Robbie Maddison. There will also be auctions, raffles, food, music and cool bikes, plus the Red Bull Trials Performance show featuring 10-time AMA Trials Champion Geoff Aaron.
