Friends of Huck
As most are aware 36-year-old ex-top Motocross rider Mark Hucklebridge is suffering from terminal cancer. He recently went for a scan and has sadly been told the cancer has spread and his blood levels have risen again. Despite this setback Huck being his usual positive self has decided to race at Farleigh Castle in the Vets MX des Nations - (http://www.vetsmxdn2014.co.uk/) this weekend before restarting intensive chemotherapy next week in the hope to keep prolonging his life.
To keep his spirits high and mind occupied Mark has been thinking about what should be done with all the monies that has currently been raised and the money that is intended to be raised to help his cause. Mark is so touched and grateful by the amount of people who have got behind him and the cause and the generosity from everyone has been incredible, he is eternally grateful. He has now applied for charity status and Hope For Huck will now become FRIENDS OF HUCK.
Friends of Huck will now split any monies raised between various Cancer charities including that of The Forever Friends Appeal who have been treating him with chemo. As Mark has grown up in and around the motocross industry the majority of the money will also go to riders who have been seriously injured or suffering a serious illness and are no longer able to live the life they once did.
Plans are currently in place for a new website, Mark is awaiting the charity number to come through plus a dedicated bank account has now been set up. The online selloo auctions will continue to run for as long as we can get items to sell and various events can be set up via the new website. This will ensure now there is one point where every event done for Huck goes through one channel as Huck and his family wish to thank people who have been involved.
Mark Hucklebridge - "I'm astounded by the support I have been given by people since my cancer was diagnosed as terminal in February and it's totally overwhelming what people have done for me.
Sometimes I've not known what has been going on and this is my reason for setting up the Friends of Huck Charity. The charity will be one point of call for everyone; we can then see what is being raised and who is raising it.
I also want to put something into the sport that has been most of my life and also the sport which has supported me the most through these horrible times. There is nothing set up for riders that have become seriously injured in motocross or for any rider and their family that might be going through similar to what I am so that's what I wish to do.
I would personally like to thank everyone who has donated, competed, bought or contributed in any shape or form since my diagnosis, I can't possibly thank you enough, I wish I could. I hope Friends of Huck will always continue to run and be successful in future years."
