Greg Hartman injured at Asian X Games FMX Demo
 
April 28, 2011 - Temecula, CA: FMX (Freestyle Motocross) is an international sport that takes riders all over the world to ride under many different circumstances that aren't always the best. These dedicated riders sometimes are hurt when away from home dealing with hospitals, language barriers and getting back home can be sketchy at best.



Professional FMX rider Greg Hartman just suffered a fall in China during practice for a demo at the currently running Asian X Games. Thankfully, ESPN and the X Games are the best in the business when it comes to caring for injured athletes so even though he is thousands of miles from home he is in great hands.

Initial reports indicate a broken femur, humorous, some shoulder damage and they are monitoring him closely for head injury. He remains in a medically induced coma at the moment, but signs are good showing minimal swelling in the brain.

The Athlete Recovery Fund (ARF) is the only 501(c)3 in BMX, FMX & Skateboarding and being able to act fast is one of their biggest assets. Currently ARF is working with Greg's wife and the crew on the ground in China to help out wherever needed.
You can help Greg today by making a donation to the Athlete Recovery Fund. ARF has helped athlete's after severe injury, granting over half a million dollars since 2008. ARF will be able to assist with negotiating through bills, grant money for the costs that insurance doesn't cover, cover flights and hotel for family members and grant money for rehabilitation that will get Greg back to top form.
Visit www.athleterecoveryfund.com today and make a donation in any amount you choose.

Mission Statement: To provide professional athletes in BMX, FMX and Skateboarding with financial support after a severe injury and granting funds for rehabilitation, equipment, long-term disability and educational scholarships.
