5th Annual Fundraising Jam – Benefiting Road to Recovery
Joe over at The BMX In Our Blood podcast just sent us the info on his 5th Annual Fundraising Jam – Benefiting Road to Recovery. This year will be the 2nd year at the Powder Ridge Ski and Bike Park in Middlefield, CT.
Past beneficiaries have been John Lee, Stephen Murray, Scotty Cranmer and the family of Kevin Robinson. We have raised over $70,000 thus far. There was also a smaller jam two years ago that we put on to benefit Chris Hallman and Lorenzo Velazquez. That was a celebration of Scotty getting back on the bike. With the amount of appreciation and help we have been able to provide to those in need, we just can’t stop.
This year will be our 2nd year at the Powder Ridge Ski and Bike Park in Middlefield, CT. It is an amazing facility that has everything from bike jump lines, downhill MTB trails, concrete snake runs and of course a BMX jump line built by the one and only Dave King (Dirt Sculpt Dave). We will again have a Scotty Cranmer obstacle course which never disappoints! Scotty is a major part of the event as he gives back after being the beneficary in the past. In addition we have onsite camping available making it a 2 day event for the 1st time. The fundraising for R2R will be on Sunday, Saturday is a fun day lead up to the real event.
Check it out all out and shout out to Joe at The BMX In Our Blood podcast for giving back and doing cool stuff in BMX.
