HEY TUMBLR FRIENDS, MELANIE NEEDS YOUR HELP.
Melanie Denton is a really close friend of mine and she was recently injured at a jam. She’s definitely a shredder and just went a little too hard. A relief fund has been set up for her so she can afford her surgeries/bills/etc, if you could please help out even donating just a dollar I know it would mean a lot to her and to me. PLEASE HELP A LADY OUT, a fucking awesome lady at that. LINK BELOW
“Melanie is a 19-year-old BMX rider who was hurt badly while riding a spine ramp at a jam recently in Austin, Texas. After shredding all day, she went over the bars coming down the spine and landed face first. She was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance and suffered some major facial damage. Melanie like many others currently has no health insurance and many bills are stacking making the situation a lot harder to deal with. After surgery and the ER visit she is roughly $9,000 in debt from this one wreck and is reaching out to the BMX world requesting donations to help during this healing time. Please be kind from one BMX rider to another. Giving anything you can will always be helpful. Every dollar counts!”
EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS, HELP OUT! <3
SPREAD THE WORD AND REBLOG FOR MELANIE.
Hey guys, it would mean a lot to me if you would sign this petition to save the Casselberry Trails
Brief History about the house and jumps:
The Trails are located at 71 N Winter Park DriveCasselberry, FL 32707
My family and I (Paul Sarkisian, Mary Sarkisian, and Aaron Sarkisian) moved to the property in 1991. As early as I can remember I have been riding my bike to and from school and to get around town. I got my first BMX bike when I was eight years old. I met Rickey Bates and started racing BMX when I was ten. Soon after we started to meet more BMXers in Casselberry and the surrounding cities. After two or three years of racing we all started to only be into the jumping and tricks side of BMX. We built our own jumps day after day at more than ten different spots in the area. After being kicked out of countless patches of woods all over the central Florida area, my father offered to let us dig in the front yard. This was in the summer of 1998. For 13 years the trails have expanded and grown into what it is today. Every year people from all over the county and world come to ride and hang out at the jumps. The jumps have been in countless main stream videos (The Welcome to pittsburgh series, Transit, The banned series, Shadow - Into the Void, Youtube, Fox News) and magazines (Case, The Albion, Dig, Cover of Ride BMX). A couple of months ago the city gave us citations for bringing in dirt to the property and for having the jumps on our property. We are now working with the city and looking for a solution to keep the jumps. The city has basically said there is no solution and if nothing is done to correct the problem then they will hire a company to come plow the jumps. Right now we are working on finishing the partial survey we have and trying to raise money for the $500 permit fee that the city is requiring.
We need to show the City of Casselberry that a lot of people care about what we have going on. They need to see that their unwillingness to work with us will not go unnoticed. If you believe that the Casselberry Trails should remain and that the City of Casselberry should start working with us towards a more positive solution then please sign our petition. You can do so by visiting the site in the link at the top or by clicking this link that goes directly to the petition:
HEY BMX FAMILY, ANYONE!
When I was in Austin, my friend Nina was seriously injured.
Nina Buitrago was seriously injured two weeks ago after a high speed transfer gone wrong, she broke a lot of her teeth and her jaw in 3 places and is currently wired shut for 6 weeks.
Nina currently doesn’t have health insurance and can’t work until she’s unwired, sooooo this is where you come in!
It will tell you to click on a link and watch a short video, 2:25 of your time, every view is a dollar to her recovery fund along with other athletes. It doesn’t matter if you bmx, skate, surf, motocross or none of the above, just help!
SERIOUSLY GUYS, HELP A LADY OUT! SPREAD THIS ALONG!
Bike rack fail at my school. If you have two adjustable wrenches, every bike in the school is yours free. Not a very secure rack if you ask me, so I use a fence. (my school actually has a policy about not locking your bike to fences, but if they say anything about it I’ll ask what their insurance policy is on stolen bikes due to their faulty rack)
gpoy, all the time.
