About the Athlete Recovery Fund: ARF was established six short months ago after Stephen Murray was injured resulting in large costs surrounding medical benefits that insurance would not cover. With the help of partners like AST and other industry corporations, athlete donations and public donations we are well on our way to accomplishing our mission. We have already provided grants for three athletes who desperately needed financial support to cover expenses revolving around injury.
Mission Statement: To provide professional athletes in BMX, FMX and Skate Boarding with financial support after a severe injury and granting funds for rehabilitation, equipment, long-term disability and educational scholarships.
ARF is a 501(c)3 Non Profit Corporation based in California. Visit www.athleterecoveryfund.com for details on our effort and donate on the paypal link provided on the home page.
***This was an auction that was in the works for several weeks. Due to the recent injury that BMX Professional Mike Aitken sustained ARF would like to operate this auction for his benefit. Mike Aitken is a icon in BMX and rides with a unique style and passion for the sport. Mike is a proud father and husband. See below for his brother’s comment on his injury;
“Mike Aitken has been hospitalized and is in serious condition. While in Pennsylvania over the weekend, Mike was seriously injured when he over-rotated a 360. He is currently in the ICU unit and has not regained consciousness. His injuries include a fractured eye socket, sinus and both sides of his jaw. A CAT scan shows no swelling on the brain. As soon as any changes in his status are available, we will pass them on. Thank you for your faith, prayers, and support of Mike and his family. They are needed and greatly appreciated.” 10/6/2008
