Donate To Shelby Farms BMX
~~Shelby Farms BMX is a non-profit 501 (3)(c) organization located at 6435 Walnut Grove Road Memphis, TN. Our track thrives on the help and time of our volunteers, sponsors and generous donations. In 2018, Shelby Farms BMX was awarded the #2 track in the state of TN and we are working hard to reach that #1 spot in the future! We are overachievers and we vision Shelby Farms BMX becoming “that track to visit” and at the top of every BMXers "Places to Race" List.
We are constantly working to improve the experience that current riders and new families have at our track. In addition to the changes you have seen recently, we would also like to add new asphalt to our turns, a permanent staging hill with asphalt and shade covering, more areas to sit and spectate the races, and overall a better training facility for our riders.
This is where you, our parents, families, tradesmen, and local business come in. Helping can come in many forms. Volunteering at the track on practice or race nights is one inexpensive way. If you volunteer 15 logged hours you will receive one free race. Riders can also log hours during our racing league and track work days. We also have sponsorship opportunities for local businesses that wish to get involved on banners, on our website and promotional events that can be held at the track.
Though the almighty dollar is nice, often times what we need is people who can get things done. Sometimes we may need an electrician or A/C repair, maybe a skid steer operator, roofer, landscaper, medical personnel for large events, IT person or a person with contacts in the media. We don’t know who you are. If there is an area you think you can help us, please let us know.
For those who don’t wish to volunteer during practice or racing, a donation (yes this is a shameless hand out-stretched) is another way you can help. We are a 501(3)(c) organization. In addition to cash contributions, we are often in need of used computer equipment, helmets, gloves, unwanted trophies, racing gear, building materials, tools, shelving, etc… depending on the project. All your donations are tax deductible.
In closing, remember every single one of us at the track is a volunteer. Take inventory of your resources. If there is a way to help us through volunteering, sponsorship or donation anything you can offer is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time,
Shelby Farms Board 2019
