May 12 – Nash Campaigns for Breast Cancer Awareness
The following is a press release from LTD Racing…LTD Racing’s Huntley Nash has begun a campaign to raise awareness of breast cancer.”I lost my mother a few years ago to breast cancer,” said Nash. “I got the idea a little before Mother’s Day to do something to get people thinking about the prevention and treatment for that disease. It’s something that can affect us all. I want people to be sure they or the women in their lives are up to speed on what is needed to prevent more lives from being lost. Early detection and screenings are the key. There is a lot of good info out there and I encourage people to check out websites like Susan G. Komen For The Cure® (www.komen.org) and talk to their doctors.”Nash, who has earned four straight podium finishes in the last AMA Pro SuperSport races, will donate half his Infineon Raceway purse to Susan G. Komen For The Cure® . “For me, I think it is a good tribute to my mother. I think that organization does a great job and is very active. If others wish to help support them as well, I think it would be great,” said Nash, who is 17 years old.Nash’s LTD Racing Yamaha R6 will wear a special decal designed by artist Chris Kruzel of Drippin’ Wet. Huntley will have more stickers available at the LTD Racing pit for other racers who want to join him and place the decals on their own bikes this weekend at Infineon Raceway.
