Loma Linda, Calif. (PRWEB) May 19, 2014
Some of the world’s best freestyle Motocross riders will put on a show for the young patients at Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital at the 11th annual Big Air Kids Fair.
The event is set for 11 a.m. on Wednesday, May 28, outside the Children’s Hospital. The hospital is located at 11234 Anderson St., Loma Linda, Calif. 92354.
Among the top riders expected to perform include Jimmy Fitzpatrick, Wes Agee, and others, who will demonstrate jaw-dropping, gasp-inducing, ramp-to-ramp Motocross stunts.
After the demo, the riders will visit the pediatric patients in the units to distribute T-shirts, toys, and Moto swag to the children and their families.
“This event is a wonderful opportunity for the members of the motorcycle industry to give back to the community that supports it, and helps us give some young patients a reason to smile,” said Steve Bauer, former professional Motocross rider who founded Big Air Kids Fair in 2003. The event, which features riders back flipping through the air, among other daring stunts, has since become a popular event for the kids at the Children’s Hospital and members of the public.
