The Women’s Motocross-Supercross Foundation (WMXF) is a non-profit organization (501c3) founded in 2003 to enhance the motocross/supercross racing community. WMXF’s mission is four-fold. First, to support 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 that contribute to the well being of families in the professional racing community. WMXF will promote fellowship among the teams and represent supercross, the outdoor nationals and the entire sport in a beneficial way.
