$3000.00. I just want to thank everyone that has helped with this. Karen Cooper, Jorge Cuartas, Cernic’s Racing, and all

taking the initiative to host this fundraising dinner that benefits something that means so much to me.” Debi Bartosek 88-

About 88 Live To Ride: The support of family, friends and the racing community when Matt, Debi’s son, died in a racing
accident led to the decision to form a corporation, 88 Live to Ride, Inc., to further expand on needs, seen as necessary,
in the sport of ATV racing. The mission of 88 Live to Ride, Inc. is to advocate and support the protection, education and
safety of riders involved in ATV racing events. Thru fundraising events held in 2005 the corporation was able to purchase
a 20’ Vintage trailer to use as its medical unit along with a Yamaha generator to supply power to it. Doc Ragon uses the
medical trailer to provide “walking wounded” care, free of charge, to the racers; their families and the spectators of the
sport we all love. Also in 2005, Yamaha Motor Corporation stepped up to the plate and provided 88 Live to Ride with a
Limited Edition Rhino to be used as their official pit vehicle at race events.
The Board of 88 Live to Ride, Inc. consists of Debi Bartosek, Jorge Cuartas, Cindi Hart and Beth Laurine. The IRS officially
granted the corporation its 501(c)(3) tax exempt status and it is now recognized as a Public Charity.
