Brea, CA September 20, 2007 In a great demonstration of "giving back," the ATV industry and media joined together to raise over $12,000 for the Mobile Medical Unit.

The event took place in Boswell, PA after the last race of the 2007 WPSA season. Dubbed the "2007 FISH FEST", the fundraiser took place at the beautiful Quemahoning Reservoir. Industry leaders, editors and pro riders were all invited to attend a fun relaxing day of fishing, canoeing, and slot car racing all for a good cause.

The Mobile Medical Unit is well known by racers as the first line of professional medical care available to them. Practicing physician Doc Ragon donates his time and talents at no charge to the riders, families and spectators at various racing venues throughout the season. Doc's two children John and Leslie currently race in the WPSA series.

Debi Bartosek of 88 Live to Ride, Inc. is at the forefront of the management and fundraising efforts for the Mobile Medical Unit. "I'm overwhelmed with what was accomplished," Debi said at the event. "The outpouring and support of all the sponsors is truly wonderful."
