Thank you to all the racers, spectators, sponsors and supporters who helped us RACE FOR A REASON in 2019!
Along with the passion Moto Mission Powersports has for off-road racing, it has an even greater passion for creating an opportunity to help local families facing adversities.
While it is easy to get caught up in the chaos of everyday life, Moto Mission hopes that Racing for a Reason will remind the community of the hardships that so many around us are dealing with every single day and how EASY it can be to help each other.
Moto Mission hopes to inspire people to do what they can to support and help others.
In 2019, Moto Mission was able to donate funds directly to 14 local individuals facing adversities while HONORING them for their strength, positivity, and perseverance throughout their sometimes difficult journeys.
We would not be able to do what we do without the racers, spectators, sponsors and Moto Mission supporters!
