GNCC Racing and Partners Raise $8,000 in Support of Breast Cancer Awareness at Yamaha Racing Ironman
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (October 29, 2021) – The 2021 Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series presented by Specialized, an AMA National Championship, concluded last weekend on October 23 and 24, with the Yamaha Racing Ironman GNCC in Crawfordsville, Indiana. For the 11th year in-a-row the event was deemed a “pink race” in honor of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, with several partners contributing to raise money for the cause.
This year GNCC and its partners raised $8,000 for Breast Cancer Awareness at the season finale in Indiana. The proceeds raised will be donated to the Faith Alliance Fund at the Montgomery County Community Foundation. The fund provides support to the Montgomery County Free Clinic (MCFC), which offers free mammogram examinations, wigs, transportation, and guidance to those affected across the Crawfordsville and surrounding region. For the past 26 years the local community has been a favorite stop for the GNCC Circuit, with moto-crazed enthusiasts everywhere you turn it has always been one of the largest turnouts in each season.
Yamaha had a successful 2021 season in the GNCC Series as Walker Fowler, and 29 other racers claimed their championships while 41 riders topped their classes in Indiana at the season finale. For every Ironman class win and National Championship earned Yamaha donated $50, with 41 wins and 30 championships a total of $3,550 was given. However, Yamaha also hosted a VIP section at Ironman’s concert where an additional $2,000 was raised from Yamaha riders and their families. In total, Yamaha will donate $5,550 in support of breast cancer care in Montgomery County.
HBD MotoGrafx continued their support with the series fundraising efforts by providing pink motorcycle backgrounds. Riders who purchased a front number plate background resulted in a $5 donation, while a full set of backgrounds included a $10 donation. Their efforts raised $355 to go to MCFC. HBD MotoGrafx also provided exclusive GNCC Breast Cancer Awareness Ironman race stickers available for a $1 donation at Rider Registration. The total donations for those stickers came to $511.
Also joining the efforts in Breast Cancer Awareness was KTM North America, who donated $1,000 to go towards GNCC’s efforts to continue to help the Montgomery County Free Clinic.
