I’ve amassed a fairly broad network on LinkedIn. One of the people I’ve connected with is a gentleman named Curtis Connor. Like too many others we know, Connor was seriously injured in a motocross accident. Despite his disabilities, Connor refused to let them keep him down. He eventually would ride again, even competing in the Extremity Games in
The Canadian Adaptive Motocross Challenge will take place in Chatsworth, Ontario, June 28th. A great avenue for riders who were injured in moto-related accidents to once again do what they love, the event could still benefit from donations or sponsorships.
Michigan. Wishing there was something similar where he lives in Canada, he formed such an event, the Canadian Adaptive Motocross Challenge. It takes place in Chatsworth, Ontario, June 28th. There will be a $1000 payout and 1st and 2nd place will also receive a custom CTI Knee Brace worth $1800 thanks to OSSUR.
As diligently as Connor has been trying to promote the event, sponsorships have been scarce, so he’s still hoping to garner a little more support. His FundRazr has only reached a fifth of its goal, but I’m sure he’d still accept any support he can get. For more info, here’s a link to the Canadian Adaptive Motocross Challenge website. We took the liberty to post Connor’s story below.
”My name is Curtis Connor. In 2011 I was permanently disabled in a motocross accident. I shattered my pelvis and blew apart my sciatic nerve on my left side. Below the knee I have no function except a small bit of movement in my toes. I was determined to get back on a bike and do what I love. After competing in the Extremity Games in Michigan, all riders are either upper, lower amputee or paraplegic, I started my own event the only one in Canada. It will take place June 28th at Motopark in Chatsworth Ontario. I am desperately trying to raise money for a prize payout for the riders so we can attract more X-Game riders etc. This event costs a lot of money for the riders to attend. All money raised will go towards a rider payout. Please help this unique event!”
