This weekend all roads lead to Coolum on the Sunshine Coast, and in conjunction with the tenth and final round of the championship, bikes, riders and teams alike are preparing to go ‰Û÷PINK‰Ûª in support of the National Breast Caner Foundation (NBCF).
Throughout 2017, the Motul MX Nationals has seen support for a number of organisations including beyondblue and R U OK?, and this weekend the National Motocross Championship will dedicate the Grand Finale to those who have been touched by breast cancer.
Motul MX Nationals Series Promoter Kevin Williams shared that like previous years Williams Event Management will donate $20 per entry for those supporting the ‰Û÷pink‰Ûª round this Saturday and Sunday.
‰ÛÏWith a large number of riders competing at Coolum this weekend, and a great portion of those donning pink in support of the NBCF, we are hoping that we can raise significant funds for those who work tirelessly to support those suffering from breast cancer, Williams explained.
‰ÛÏAs well as $20 for each entry, we will also be donating all of the money generated from those opting to camp at the track over the weekend to the organisation.
‰ÛÏWe have already seen some awesome sneak peaks of bikes, riding gear, helmets and more ahead of this weekend‰Ûªs event, so we‰Ûªre very excited to see what others turn pink on Saturday and Sunday.
Williams also mentioned that with close to 5000 spectators expected to flood through the gates at the Coolum Pines Motocross Track each day this weekend, that he‰Ûªs hoping some of the round ten punters will also take part in the event‰Ûªs NBCF fundraising auction.
‰ÛÏEach year we have a number of items kindly donated to auction off at Round 10 of the championship, and this weekend we have lots of special pieces of merchandise up for grabs,‰Û
