About the Fundraiser

She graduated this spring from Navojoa University earning her teaching credentials, with a minor in psychology. Navajoa University is located in Navajoa, Sonora, Mexico.

About The Ride
JN Roberts and Malcolm Smith are two of the greatest ambassadors in the history off-road racing, beign the first motorcycle to cross the line in the Baja 1000 in 1967, countless desert races, numerous ISDE medals, international rallies and many more achievements too numerous to list. In addition to the single-track trails through woods and river crossings, JN also has a 2.5 mile motocross track. Although this is a working ranch, it is motorcycle friendly...
