WMXF Event at Thunder Valley National

Proceeds from fundraiser will go to Joe Oehlof

CORONA, Calif. (July 20, 2005) ¿ The Women¿s Motocross/Supercross Foundation (WMXF) is hosting a ¿Dunk n¿ Dessert¿ event this Saturday at the Thunder Valley AMA motocross national.  Looking to have some fun to continue their mission to help raise money for injured riders, the WMXF will have a dunk tank set up and will have free dessert for everyone that comes by to check out the action.

This is an open call to industry members, crewmembers, and riders ¿ bring your own person to dunk! Or just dunk some of the industry insiders who have volunteered to go in the tank.  The dessert is free and for just one dollar, you¿ll get three chances to dunk someone. All of the proceeds will benefit Joe Oehlhof.

Saturday, July 23, 4:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.

All riders, their families, any crewmembers and their families, anyone from the industry, and any fans in the pits!

“This is a chance for the motocross community to get together and have a little fun,¿ said Shirley Short, WMXF co-president. ¿I know that I am personally looking forward to dunking Paul Lindsey in that tank!” 

The WMXF is comprised entirely of volunteer members connected with the professional Supercross/Motocross industry. Since its inception, the WMXF has divvied out nearly $35,000 to support the Asterisk Mobile Medical Unit, Motor Racing Outreach, injured privateer racers, and others within the motocross community.

WMXF Mission Statement

Our mission is four-fold. First, to support to any racer or crewmember who suffers injury as a result of participation in or preparation for a professional motocross/supercross event. Second, the foundation provides support to those in the motocross/supercross community who suffer serious misfortune not directly related to competition. Third, WMXF provides financial support to benevolent organizations that support the sport of motocross/supercross. Finally, the foundation serves as a group of women who contribute to the well-being of families in the professional motocross/supercross community.
