All proceeds go to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, continues to build on its partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
During the Nashville Supercross, riders included art created by St. Jude’s patients on their bikes. St. Jude patients were on hand to help launch a special St. Jude/Supercross Auction that features autographed gear as well as an Official 2017 Ryan Dungey Championship Replica Ring and a Bullfrog Spas Hot Tub (pictured below). The online auction runs through the final race in Las Vegas.
“Every new step that Supercross and St. Jude take together just opens my eyes to how wonderful St. Jude is and we are looking forward to a long relationship with this great organization,” said Dave Prater, Senior Director of Supercross at Feld Entertainment. “This partnership between Feld Entertainment and St. Jude is the perfect way to leverage the power of Supercross to rally athletes and fans in raising funds to treat and defeat childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.”
You can help St. Jude by texting “SUPER” to 785-833 or by visiting stjude.org/supercross.
Over the years, the Supercross community has rallied around St. Jude, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. This is thanks in part to Ryan Dungey. In 2017, he helped launch an inaugural text-to-donate campaign. Last year, Supercross athletes and fans raised more than $100,000.
The season-long fundraising and awareness campaign has been, and will continue to be, showcased during each Monster Energy Supercross race through on-air, digital and social media promotion. The total funds raised for St. Jude during the season will be announced during the live broadcast of the 2019 Supercross Championship at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas on May 4.
Fans can join the cause by participating in the text-to-donate campaign. By doing so, they will receive an exclusive "THIS SHIRT SAVES LIVES" t-shirt featuring the Supercross logo. Fans can then post their own photos wearing the campaign T-shirt on social media using the hashtag #ThisShirtSavesLives and #supercrosslive.
