Join us for our 13th Annual Big Air Kids Fair!
Steve Bauer, Big Air Kids Fair founder
For nearly twenty years, hundreds of spectators have filled the sidewalk and entryway to Loma Linda University Children's Hospital for Big Air Kids Fair, a Freestyle Motocross demo. Each year the event is made possible by founder Steve Bauer. "This is more than an FMX show for us. It's a chance to bring some much needed smiles to these kids' faces," Mr. Bauer says. "We appreciate Loma Linda University Children's Hospital for giving us the opportunity to do this for the past 15 years."
In addition to the FMX show, each year Mr. Bauer invites a handful of the world's topSupercross and Motocross racers to the charity event. After the show they spend the afternoon touring the hospital, handing out toys, clothing and other goodies to patients, all donated by the wonderful people and companies that comprise the motocross racing community. Many of these companies have been on board since the very first Kid's Fair back in 2003, when the former professional motocross racer called his lifelong friend and former competitor, Marty Moates, to help round up support for the fledgling event. Marty, one of the sport's true icons, was the first American to win the United States Grand Prix at Carlsbad after decades of European domination, becoming an instant legend and an inspiration to a generation of fans across the country.
After racing he co-founded the successful action sports apparel company, No Fear, as well as FMF International apparel. Marty was fully committed to the Big Air Kids' Fair from the start, bringing hundreds of shirts and hats each year and personally, seeing that no one was left out. His enthusiasm for the event and love for the kids was unmistakable and contagious.
Any donation, no matter how big or small, will help put a smile on every child's face who is struggling in ways that no child should ever be. If you would like to help support the cause, please visit this secure link: paypal.me/bigairkidsfair
