AMCA has announced Road 2 Recovery UK is to be their official Charity as of April 2022. A statement reads:
This is the first time in our 90year history that we have aligned with any charitable organisation and we are excited about the vision Road 2 Recovery UK has for helping the riders within the UK motocross community.
The Road 2 Recovery UK Charity specifically helps with the relief of motocross and freestyle motocross riders who have suffered life altering injuries serious enough for them to stop participating in their sport or take a long period of time to recover. The Charity’s aim is to raise funds and have them available immediately if required.
Road 2 Recovery UK will be using their partnership with the AMCA to promote their work, fundraising, meeting AMCA riders/members and will be present at as many AMCA events as possible this season to give you more information on what the Charity is doing.
Jamie Dobb, 2000 World Champion & R2R UK Trustee: “I have been involved with Road2Recovery (USA) for the past 20 years. This work has helped put the foundations in place to get R2R UK established as an official UK charity which now allows us to join forces with the AMCA as an official partner. This is fantastic news, and will continue to allow the R2R Charity to help riders and their families in their darkest hour in the UK as it has done for so long in the USA.”
Steve Harvey, General Manager of AMCA: “We are pleased to welcome Road2Recovery UK to the AMCA as a partner. The model of the Charity issomething which we feel is needed within our sport. The work the US sister company has done has been fantastic and we can’t wait to work alongside the UK arm of the Charity in 2022 and beyond.”
