Ciarletta Family To Give Back To The Sport Their Son Loved
ANAHEIM, California (Jan. 28, 2004) — The Woman’s Auxiliary Of Motocross & Supercross has been chosen to facilitate a Memorial Fund for Jason Ciarletta to benefit various positive programs operating throughout the motocross community.
Young motocross professional Jason Ciarletta died suddenly in a crash during qualifying at the AMA Supercross at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego on Saturday, January 24th. His death was the first ever in the 31-year history of indoor motocross.
“We spoke with Jason’s family regarding establishing a memorial fund for whatever needs they may have during this tragic time,” stated Jamie Beavers of the Women’s Auxiliary. “Their preference was that donations made in their son’s honor be given back to the motocross community.”
The Women’s Auxiliary will work with the Ciarletta family to distribute memorial funds among benevolent organizations that support the sports of Motocross and Supercross.
“We all mourn for the Ciarletta family and for what they must be going through at this difficult time,” adds Sharon Richards. “We’re sure the rest of the motocross community feels the same way and will want to contribute in honor of one of their fellow racers. We look forward to helping make good things happen as a result of this terrible loss.”
