2nd annual Big Brothers Big Sisters "Day to Play in the Dirt" Event - Dirt Rider Magazine | MiniRider.com

Houston, Texas - Cornerstone Motocross Park will host the 2nd annual Big Brothers Big Sisters "Day to Play in the Dirt" event on March 27, 2010.Most motorcyclists remember the day as a kid when they rode a mini bike for the first time, or maybe even the first time they took off across a grassy field or down a dirt road on a dirt bike. We created "Day to Play in the Dirt" to share this experience with children who may never have an opportunity to ride a dirt bike, or to see and feel the excitement of a day at the races.

At our 2nd annual "Day to Play in the Dirt" event on March 27, 2010, eighty lucky inner-city kids from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Houston and other local related charities will be the very special guests of Cornerstone MX Park and will receive VIP treatment from local off-road riders and their families. As part of this special event, each participating kid will receive personal riding lessons and will get to ride off-road motorcycles around a specially-prepared motocross track. In addition, the kids, their "Bigs" and their families will be treated to a trackside lunch, tours of the racing rigs on our special "Pit Row", and will get to meet and watch Houston's local motocross pros air it out on Cornerstone's main track. Spectator admission is free, and the public is welcome to come out to watch our local riders in action on one of Houston's premier motocross facilities."We learned from last year's event how much our local motocross community can make a difference in the lives of these kids" said Cornerstone owner Greg Hattig. "Seeing the smiles on those kids' faces all day long was enough for us to realize how much we wanted to make this an annual event here at Cornerstone MX" said Hattig, "so we are really looking forward once again to sharing our passion for this sport with these kids and their families".
