He’s the four-time Extremity Games Gold Medalist and two-time X Games Gold Medalist and amputee known simply as Ridge… and he’s chasing his 5th gold medal…
But this year, a last-minute change of sponsorship means there’s not enough money to get to the Extremity Games, which is quickly approaching on May 28th.
There is a solution and you can help get our super fast, super star friend Chris Ridgway to Michigan on May 28th to race in Adaptive Motocross once again. Chris has never let his prosthetic limb stop him from achieving his dreams of being the fastest guy on one leg.
The goal here is simple… we are raising $5,000 for the Limbs For Life Foundation, a non-profit that buys limbs for amputees in need, so that Chris can get back to the Extremity Games and claim his 5th gold on behalf of the organization. By promoting the organization that outfitted him with his very own limb for life, Chris hopes his efforts continue to inspire other amputees to succeed reaching their dreams.
I’ve teamed up with Krysten Knievel, grand-daughter of the legendary Evel Knievel, to spearhead this effort. Krysten works for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation and has quite a bit of experience with non-profit organizations. She contacted the
Limbs For Life Foundation with this fundraising idea and they are 100% behind it. LFL has sponsored Chris in the past with prosthetics and support for this particular annual event, but funding is tight this year.
LFL has agreed to provide sponsorship to Chris once more IF we meet our fundraising goals.
If you’ve read this far, thank you, but now we’re wasting time reading when we should ponying up some cash so he can get on the road to Michigan. This is a time-sensitive fundraiser.
