AURORA, Ill (February 16, 2011) – The second annual Pink-themed Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, race continued to raise breast cancer awareness before a sell-out crowd 45,050 fans at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif., two weeks ago. While the Anaheim race is in the record books, the fundraising has not stopped.
Fans can log on to http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZshastarosejohnsonQQhtZ-1 to bid on the Pink-themed autographed Monster Energy Supercross apparel and accessories from the sport’s top riders, including Chad Reed, Ryan Dungey, Ryan Villopoto, James Stewart and more. The auction is live and ends Friday, February 18. Additional items will be added throughout the week. The funds raised will go to the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure 60-mile walk.
Breast cancer affects one in eight women in the U.S. and breast cancer knows no boundaries—be it age, gender, socio-economic status or, more broadly, the state of the economy. Monster Energy Supercross fans recognize the need for continued support of charitable causes as both a broad effort and for personal reasons alike.
Working with Feld Motor Sports, Shasta Johnson, who is a survivor and Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure Team Captain, will join thousands of other dedicated men and women for the San Diego Breast Cancer 3-Day to raise awareness and funds for the fight against breast cancer. The three-day, 60-mile walk benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure® requires months of physical and financial preparation, challenge and triumph.
