MOTO: 2014 MX for Children and Monster Energy Supercross Team Up
New Volunteer Effort to Remodel Bedroom of Chronically Ill Child
Press Release from Feld Motor Sports
AURORA, Ill. (January 13, 2014) - Feld Motor Sports® and MX for Children announced today the MX for Children Supercross Dream Room Makeover, a new charity event for 2014 that will coincide with the Seattle stop of Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, on April 12. This collaborative effort between Feld Motor Sports and MX for Children will enhance the quality of life for a chronically ill child who is also a fan of Monster Energy Supercross. One child will be selected to receive a complete bedroom makeover themed with Monster Energy Supercross scenes and paraphernalia.
Volunteers will work to design and build the Monster Energy Supercross-themed bedroom before the stop at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field.
The selected child will be interviewed by local media during the week prior to Seattle Supercross (April 7) and will be offered an opportunity to participate in MX for Children’s Inside Line Experience. MX for Children and Feld Motor Sports believe this effort will bring joy and excitement into the life of a sick child in the Seattle area.
MX for Children’s Inside Line Experience is a Monster Energy Supercross exclusive with a unique, multi-day behind the scenes look at the sport. The Dream Room Makeover recipient will participate in a “Meet and Greet” with top Monster Energy Supercross racers in a private, informal atmosphere for autographs and pictures. On race day, the selected child will tour factory rigs, walk the Monster Energy Supercross track and enjoy the race with great seats!
MX for children will be searching the Seattle area community for volunteers and sponsors to help design and develop the child’s room into a special safe haven from the difficulties of illness. For more information on MX for Children or to volunteer, please visit www.mxforchildren.org.
For the first-time ever, the entire Monster Energy Supercross season will air live on FOX Sports. FOX Sports 1 will air 13 races live and FOX Sports 2 will air four races live, in addition to every race re-airing on FOX Sports 2.
