About Road 2 Recovery UK
Who We Are
The Road 2 Recovery UK Charity set-up and run to specifically help with the relief of motocross and freestyle motocross athletes (professional and amateur) who have suffered life-altering injuries serious enough for them to stop participating in their sport, or from which they will take a significant time to recover.
What We Do
Road 2 Recovery UK (R2R UK) is the UK sister charity of the successful US foundation that has been operating as a not-for-profit organization since 2000. Both charities/foundations will run independently but where possible collaborate/team-up to maximise the brand exposure and maximise available resources.
The R2R UK charity plans to operate slightly differently to the US model in the way that it aims to help amateur riders as well as professional riders and has longer term ambitions of venturing into alternative sports such as cycling (Road, MTB, BMX, CycloCross etc.), but keeping to the two wheeled theme for continuity.
R2R UK’s aim is to raise and hold funds that will be immediately available if/when an incident happens. We aim to be in a position to aid any athlete without hold-ups and avoid the delays that quite often arise when raising funds after the incident which is not always successful and can be emotionally charged and testing for all concerned.
The help offered to qualifying athletes can vary from contributing towards rehabilitation and physiotherapy to paying for upgrades, changes to their home to cater for new disabilities to buying wheelchairs and equipment that might be unaffordable. Ultimately, the charity aims to help as many athletes as possible recover and adapt to their life-altering injuries and allow them to continue with their new lives as comfortably as possible. The charity will have specific qualifying criteria and each case will be looked at, discussed and decided upon within the team and board of trustees ahead of acceptance.
We're always looking for people with passion, imagination and drive to join us. Be a part of our story and help us improve the lives of everyone in the UK affected by a life-changing motocross accident.
