Road 2 Recovery generates most of its revenue through fundraisers that bring our sports heroes, industry and fans together. Each event we host gathers more and more support and all of the money raised by these events is put back into our sport. Through the success of our on-line auctions and two golf tournaments in 2001, we were able to provide a licensed medical orthopedist, Dr. Augustine, at each of the sixteen Outdoor National races this year. It is the long reaching goal of the Road 2 Recovery Foundation to provide medical assistance at each Supercross and Outdoor National, as well as our continue mission of providing emotional, spiritual and financial support to our motocross heroes that sustain career ending injuries.
Our event plans are on going. Below is a list of upcoming events. Click on any of them for more info, or download a sign up form and join us! We are always on the lookout for new events that support our cause. If you have an idea for a fundraising event, let us know. It is continual support of our cause that keeps us motivated!

Miles for Miracles
Former professional motocross rider, Jimmy Button, once paralyzed from an accident at the San Diego SX Supercross event will peddle out of the infamous San Diego Qualcomm Stadium, the very location of a horrific accident that left him paralyzed and with little hope of ever walking again. On February 20, 2011, Button will ride away on a bicycle to launch a 2,428 mile journey across North America “Miles for Miracles” from San Diego, California to Daytona Florida. Averaging 60 miles per day, the ride is expected to take nearly two months. The goal of Jimmy’s epic ride is to raise money for very important research that could potentially help end the suffering a person goes through after having a spinal cord injury.
