During my 20 years in the motorcycle industry, I have worked with a number of up and coming young racers helping them realize their goals and ambitions.
One of these young men is Josh Serne who I have been helping for the past the 10 years. Josh is one of the most exceptional riders I have ever had the privilege to work with and now I want to help him realize his dream of becoming a world champion.
An extremely talented rider, life for Josh is more difficult than for many as he suffers from Cystic Fibrosis. Despite the fact that he must go through three breathing treatments each day and swallow a handful of pills after every meal that would choke a normal person, he perseveres and never complains. His determination is obvious and he had no intention of letting his disease rule his life.
When I first started learning about this disease I found out the average life expectancy of a CF patient was 27 years. Luckily in the last 10 years it has risen to 49 years old.
At the suggestion of my niece, I have started a fund to raise money to make Josh’s dream a reality. I would like to ask my friends for some help on this project and I would also like to thank all the people who have donated so far and the people and companies that have helped Josh along the way. The money we raise will be used to fund Josh's Race Program for 2014 and beyond.
