Ryan Hughes

The Road 2 Recovery Foundation is accepting donations for Motocross legend Ryan Hughes who was injured at Pala Raceway on February 13, 2013. Ryan sustained a number of serious injuries to his spine including a broken T-3 and shattered T-4, which initially caused paralysis to most of Ryan’s extremities. Fortunately for Ryan the paralysis was only temporary and he was able to regain feeling and movement after doctors successfully fused his back from T-2 to T-6. As of February 15th Ryan has endured 2 surgeries, the first surgery was performed when a blood clot again caused partial paralysis due to swelling near the spine and subsequent pressure to the spinal cord, and the second to stabilize his back.

Shae Bentley

A longtime fan-favorite, Shae Bentley needs our help. Shae turned pro in 1998 and ended up in 5th place in the East Coast SX series. Shae was forced to sit out the following season due to injury, but came back in 2000 and captured the 125 West Coast SX Championship. Unfortunately Shae would continue to be pledged with illness and injury. Just shy of his 26th birthday Shae made the decision to retire. Now Shae finally knows why he had been so ill. Crohn's disease. Crohn's disease is a chronic inflammatory disease. Since there is no cure for Crohn's disease, the goals of treatment are to induce and maintain remission, minimize side effects of treatment, and improve the quality of life. Shae has been hospitalized for the past 2 weeks and is too ill to work. So lets all pull together and help this champion.
