Iowa Mountain Bike Championship Series had a total of 111 Youth Entry Fees during the 2015 season (JUNIORS). Many of those young racers come from homes where the expense of paying a mountain bike race entry fee is simply not affordable. We are asking for donations this year to help cover the costs of the entry fees for our under age 18 racers in Iowa. We ask that those of you who have the financial means to make a donation to help cover the cost of our up and coming youth here in Iowa to race their mountain bikes at one of our IMBCS events to donate what you feel is appropriate.
Each JUNIOR entry fee averages $20 per race, so if you want to sponsor one entry fee, two entry fees, 5 entry fees, or even more – it would help insure that our next generation of mountain bike racers here in Iowa have a chance to race their mountain bikes in our great state.
We have set a goal of raising $2500 based on the number of racers we had in the under age 18 categories during the 2015 season. The donated money will be used soley to cover youth entry fees for the JUNIORS and in the case of those who need it, a one day USA Cycling License. IMBCS is now under the 501 (c) (3) status, so your donation will be tax deductible.
The IMBCS Advisory Board, the parents of youth racers, and the individual host race organizations will be very thankful for your generous contribution – especially if it means seeing the determined faces of Iowa’s youth out on our mountain bike trails during 2016 racing their bikes.
