RACE FOR LIFE - DOUBLE POINT RACE - MAY 5 2019
The RACE FOR LIFE is a charity BMX race event where riders and parents fund raise to gather donations benefitting Leukemia Cancer Research at the BC Children’s Hospital. It's all about kids helping kids.
All proceeds from the entry fees will be sent to BC Children's Hospital Leukemia Cancer Research Unit. Riders can also collect funds before and after the race and receive special prizes provided by BMX Canada and Nanaimo BMX, based on the amount collected. Tracks earn the privilege of double point status for their 2020 Race For Life by attaining a $1,500 donation goal this year. To date, Nanaimo BMX and fellow BMX Canada tracks in BC have raised over $450,000.
