The Stay Strong Trails Jam takes place this Saturday at Alianos Trails, Worcester to help raise much needed funds for Stephen Murray.
Madison has had some exclusive one-off custom Ogio bags created and donated as some of the prizes, and judging by the sponsors list there’s bound to be a whole heap of top notch goodies up for grabs. If you rock 20-inch or just want to see some of the UK BMXers throw down, head over to Worcester this Saturday
Extract from www.stephenmurrayfamilyfund.com :
“On Friday June 22nd at the AST Dew Tour BMX Dirt Finals in Baltimore, MD, Stephen Murray took a horrific fall on the final set of the dirt section while sending a double back flip. Stephen has received career ending injuries to his spinal cord and vertebrae.
Unlike the NFL or other major professional sports which have unions that provide funds to athletes who are injured, BMX has nothing like this. BMX however is much more like a family than any other sport. Now is the time we need to reach out and support one of our family members like never before.
The injuries that Stephen sustained are no doubt going to affect him for a life time. Medical bills alone can reach astronomical dollar amounts. As a BMX community we have the power to help him. Stephen is a young 27 years old and is the financial provider for a wife and two young children.”
