Cooper Abbott’s Race Bike to Be Given to Deserving Cancer Survivor

Cooper Abbott, The Fox Auto Team, Sherco USA and The Steve and Nancy Fox Cancer Center team up to give Abbott’s race bike to deserving cancer survivor.

Approximately 1.9 million new cancer diagnoses occur each year in the U.S. Chances are that you have been or you know someone who has been affected by this terrible disease. Cooper Abbott, The Fox Auto Team, Sherco USA, and the Steve and Nancy Fox Cancer Center announced a partnership where they are teaming up to give away Abbott’s EnduroCross race bike to a rider or rider’s family who has been affected by a cancer diagnosis.

“As many people know, cancer has had a profound effect on my family with both my mother and father having been diagnosed,” said Abbott. “I am so grateful for people like Steve and Nancy Fox who are so dedicated to eradicating this awful disease. When Steve brought the idea to give away my EnduroCross race bike to a dirt bike family who has been affected, I was all in and so was Sherco USA,” concluded Abbott.

To nominate someone, simply visit shercousa.com/cooper and with a few paragraphs, tell your story. You can also upload a Word document or video URL if you choose. Maybe someone had to give up riding or had to sell their dirt bike to help pay for medical bills. All submissions will then go into a master list and then be randomized. A winner will be selected at the end of the 2023 EnduroCross season through a random drawing of all entries.

“While I was undergoing treatment for Stage 4 cancer, one of the things that helped me get through it was dreaming of riding my motorcycle again,” said Steve Fox. “That freeing feeling of riding a dirt bike is like nothing else. That is part of why I am so excited to partner with Cooper and Sherco USA to give away Cooper’s race bike to a deserving person,” concluded Fox.

“When Steve approached us about this idea we couldn’t say no,” said Sherco USA President Ron Sallman. “Having Cooper on the team has really opened our eyes to the impact that cancer can have on a family.  We hope this bike will bring some real joy to a deserving person or family.”

The entry period is now open. Submissions will conclude on Nov. 21 with a winner drawn that day.
