Thanks to ALL of the fundraisers and industry participants who have helped us keep this program growing and supporting critical research at children’s hospitals around the country. The funds raised support research into improving treatments and outcomes for hydrocephalus — the #1 cause of brain surgery in kids.
Chad Reed of Two Two Motorsports still holds the lead in the Jackpot Challenge having raised over $5000. Like Chad’s hard charging finish in 5th, his crew of fundraisers continue to raise big dollars on Chad’s behalf. There are four more weeks of fundraising for the Jackpot Challenge and still opportunities to earn the Inside Line Experience in Toronto, Houston, Seattle and Salt Lake City.
Thanks to Motorcycle Superstore who signed on to provide our 2nd place prize — a $500 gift certificate to Motorcycle Superstore!
100% of the pledges raised in our 2013 Jackpot Challenge benefit seven children’s hospitals around the US and Canada and their research to improve a vexing childhood brain condition called hydrocephalus.

But Chad’s team of fundraisers had built a base of support giving Two Two Motorsports a near $900 lead in overall support of MX for Children for the Jackpot Challenge.

After a very successful fundraising season for MX for Children in conjunction with Monster Energy Supercross, we have decided to officially START fundraising for the 2013 season NOW! We will be returning to all five cities — St. Louis, Toronto, Houston, Seattle and Salt Lake City — with the Inside Line Experience and the Jackpot Challenge award for Las Vegas for the highest fundraiser. We have updated the Inside Line Experience page with the details of the cities and the program. The fundraising sites can be used to continue your great work and we will transfer your fundraising from June 1 on when the new sites are up and running.
Numerous fundraisers have decided to run MX for Children Ride events to raise money for the cause. If you are interested in doing this, please contact us immediately. We want to take advantage of the summer months to raise as much money as possible!

Come out and support Texas Children’s Hospital and help cure hydrocephalus — the #1 cause of brain surgery in kids. Saturday, June 2, 2012, the Houston crew of MX for Children fundraisers will be putting on a benefit ride at Rio Bravo Motocross Park in Houston, TX. The ride starts at 9 am and goes all day. It will include a swap meet, cook off and raffle. This family practice day is just for fun — not a race — without flaggers. Check out the ride flyer for more details…
We’re so pleased to announce that our 2012 Jackpot Challenge has raised over $43,000! This is a record amount and we also set a new record this year for the largest amount ever raised by an individual at
We would like to thank to Feld Motorsports for their support and encouragement for this year’s event. We also got great support from the teams and riders with tweets and Facebook posts that drove a lot of awareness. The industry supported us with great prizes (thanks again Motorcycle Superstore!) Finally, a very well-deserved thank you to all who participated in Canada and the United States. We witnessed some really great fund raising tactics this year – use of Facebook and other social media tools, pizza parties, bake sales, and lots of door-to-door efforts. Hats off to all of you as these funds will make a real difference in the lives of children who suffer from hydrocephalus.
We hope to see you all back next year! Stay tuned for details about the Jackpot Challenge in 2013!
Watching Ryan Villopoto and Justin Barcia race to their victory’s Saturday night in Toronto’s Rogers Centre were 9 other winners, too. These were the top fund raisers for this year’s MX for Children Inside Line Experience for Toronto’s SickKids Hospital. Having raised well over $17,000 in total – our ILE’ers experienced the Monster Energy Supercross stop in Toronto in an exclusive up close and personal fashion during the race weekend. Starting with ‘MX for Children Only’ access to Thursday’s Press Day, ILE’ers got to hang out with World Motocross ChampionsMarvin Musquin and Ken Roczen, who later put on a private Supercross practice for the group. On race day morning we visited with Kevin Windham inside his Geico Honda team rig as well as experienced Monster Energy Kawasaki and Yoshimura Suzuki private rig tours. A track walk in mid-afternoon showcased to all how difficult and steep obstacles on the Dirt Wurx designed track really were! Finally, the “Industry Seating” allowed great
views into the night’s racing action. We’d like to thank all of our 2012 Inside Line Experience participants for a great Toronto race experience, and most importantly their great contribution to the SickKids Foundation.
