July 18th we are doing an auction to to raise money for Kevin Robinson and Dave Mirra’s children’s education fund. I’m donating this painting I made of one of the most stylish variations I’ve witnessed Kevin throw down. My painting was inspired from a @jaredsouney photo. Swipe to see some pictures and time lapse of this painting. Here’s a release with more info on how to support. – Sports Community Comes Together to Honor Late BMX Icons Dave Mirra and Kevin Robinson With a Benefit for Their Children
Silent Auction with 100% Net Proceeds to Benefit Education Funds for Both Families; Minnesota’s Supercross Hero Ryan Dungey and BMX Legend Mat Hoffman Among Those Attending
Minneapolis, Minn. — The action sports world lost two incredibly talented and iconic BMX athletes within two years of one another. Dave Mirra, who passed in February 2016, and Kevin Robinson, December 2017, were adored by fans from around the world, but none more than their wives and their children. On Wednesday, July 18th, in downtown Minneapolis – home of the X Games – the benefit will bring together the Minneapolis and action sports community to raise education funds for Dave’s daughters Madison and Mackenzie, and for Kevin’s children Shaye, Kevin Jr., and Riley. Both Dave and Kevin competed in the X Games for almost 20 years with 18 gold medals between them. “Kevin and Dave are two of my heroes who gave so much to our sport, so now it’s our turn to come together and to give to their family’s,” said BMX legend Mat Hoffman.
It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to end my day in my happy place. It’s been a tough few months but never give up. Fight for what you love.
