The Dedication will be attended by many of Lusk’s colleagues and Metal Mulisha teammates and will be on display through April 15th. Admission is free to the public.
The Tribute will also serve as the backdrop for the announcement of the formation of the Lusk Legacy Foundation, set up not only to honor the memory of Jeremy Lusk but dedicated to improving the safety in the sport of freestyle motocross at both the professional and recreational levels by protecting the livelihoods of the riders and their families.
The foundation’s first fundraiser, A Gala and Poker Tournament, has been set for April 15th at the Pechanga Resort and Casino. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org
