For these kids so someone is listening and thinking gosh you know my kid is involved in soccer you know and I could really use some help from this foundation. What else sports do you helpless. Our only public look motor Caspian Max karate competition care. It helped keep sponsorship or soccer. We just haven't had a lot of and a lot of sports come q.s. Except for my aircraft were pretty much known in the light aircraft community for supporting kids and my aircraft but we want to open up more sport and more kids believed. Only I can help it an extreme sport because that's more independent and there's not really a lot of support for that. There are sponsorships are business at a discount trickier and. Things like that and apps front entrance fees and travel fees and things like that. There's just not a lot of support when kids were really really hard. To get to different competition and are they work really really hard and then Alec and they something happened than their criminal breaks down or their gear is getting worn out. We wanna help attach. So it doesn't matter what sport it is and tilt freed up on the application in particular we want to help kids and I'll work. One of your. Biggest things that you support our kids who are getting into motor cross can you tell us about that. What is motor cross and me because for some of us it seems like a French sport but there's a lot of kids are really like this. Allocated such an internal unrest or in the kid capsule in Lebanon and such against corporate it'll be ADHD. And give them a place to get get out their energy eke it out their frustration and and help he turned the focus. It keeps his ban to be able to ilk. I am just staying on task. A lot of kids with ADHD actually give that part because they helped calm them down and helped them be more focus our school and other means that my aircraft is just a very exciting part for these kids that Piet van Allen crash it. Extreme. You can just have a blast in not only did god as we tick on my kids. And only paid for they can beat her six races. We paid for their travel expense particular track down an art and and we help provide bailout graphics for the bikes and a bye click cope with a tracked him and only outlet part and well we needed it it gives them the opportunity to have a seed than a motor cross and relatively exciting. Watch cool kids and then we had to expand writers which were amazing and I. That helped actually couched their kid and train land includes and the basics teach them techniques we had one kid. Chris McCarron you know. Never have been on attack before I was kind of tacking on a bike and look. It tech. And let from the back of the pack to the last QB to gain at the top three and we'll get he's just been amazingly in the we have another a young kid named Michael. And again and his stiff everything about cam. I've just been a mean little his confident that went out me would be quite cool that he's done better in school he would be more focused. He had to look forward to give a part of something bigger than himself and yet watching his whole attitude and demeanor change in watching them become more respectful. His peers and not in it in the family eat. Potentially pay because he had come and look forward killed any actor who really exciting when you see kids. Growling not only in our sport but also going in our income they're Al headaches and learning dad told to be count as a woman don't. And they need to learn how to be competitive but also be it inquired and have good sportsmanship any. Is that an eagle on Hackett had a bikes are looking their bikes and their air. Any peek at them basic mechanics of a lot in order across. They get it on the right in writing can only try to help each down in all aspects to be fixed that's when I'm on the mark and also in life. I can just picture on the going to organic and being able to roll out in style their bikes look so great. And you know they've got all the training they needed their feeling confident and strong because they've had great mentors to help them get there. And then all they really can be focused all they have to be focused on. It's going in and being successful in their race or whatever that way that means to them so. You know we applaud you for all of the efforts and all of the work hard work that you put in to help change these kids' lives. It's exciting. It's exciting watching these kids just become. Just an Avian and Donald England. Even on the expansion opportunities that they normally when I haven't been really exciting and allied. We actually helped it get the kids that it righty we actually wanted a car wash for them to get to return man. And that smile laugh because knowing that they revealed on how to get there but that they worked for their property he did get an eleven to ponytail band. And guess watching them be so excited that the you raise the money themselves. And they got there in need get a leaving Japan China and became doubly important apparent love the fact that these kids. Aren't just been handed some and I haven't earned it stamina work for it and just the pride that these skits have money earned the money to go to competition. Aren't being out there you know when they're involved in helping ease their peer than doing backpack type events and Cunningham gets on Mother's Day. Her father has gained just.
