Chris Haines Motorcycle Adventure Company has teamed up with Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central and Western North Carolina, to grant Lenoir teen Justin Richardson an exhilarating week of off roading fun in pristine Baja Mexico.
"Riding dirt bikes has always been my thing," stated 17 year old Richardson, who proved his mettle out on the rugged Mexican terrain. After suiting up in pro Fox Head Inc. gear and saddling up on premier Honda dirt bikes, the entire Richardson family set off for the adventure of a lifetime to the peninsula's tip.
"It's been extremely rewarding, working with Make-A-Wish Foundation," said CHMAC founder, 13-time Baja 1000 winner, and Honda Rider's Club of America partner Chris Haines. "It was an honor sharing our love of Baja with this courageous family."
Haines' team navigated the Richardsons through the same majestic landscape, witnessed centuries earlier by Conquistadors in their discovery of Baja. The route included beautiful towns like San Quintin, San Ignacio, Loreto and La Paz; and covered most of the traditional point-to-point Baja 1000 race course.
The Journey Culminated at the exquisite Finisterra Hotel at the tip of Cabo San Lucas. Justin and family thoroughly soaked in this sport fishing Mecca before hopping on the long plane ride back to reality.
"The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central and Western North Carolina is still extremely excited about the work that Chris Haines Motorcycle Adventure put into granting Justin Richardson's wish of participating on one of the tours that his company offers," said Wish Coordinator Amanda Williams. "His family was extremely pleased with the tour they went on, as well as the kindness of everyone involved. We truly appreciate Chris Haines Motorcycle Adventure Company's help in granting Justin's wish!"
