The funds will be used to help pay for race entries, gas cost, food, camping fees, and medication expenses while we are at the NMA Nationals

Hello, my name is Kevin McWhirk, I am 11 years old. I have raced dirt bikes for 6 years, and on May 6th 2011 I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). When I was in the hospital I was scared I would not be able to ride or race my bike again. With proper education about T1D, proper management of my T1D, healthy eating, and exercise I am riding faster than I have in a LONG time. My wish is to show kids no matter what disease or illness they have; with proper education and management, they can do ANYTHING they set their minds to.

Within the last 2 months I have qualified for one Regional race and one National race. The National race that I have qualified for is the NMA in Norman, OK. To be able to go to Norman, OK, for the NMA National race you have to place in the top 12 riders in the Texas area. I qualified in 6th place in my Mod class and 7th in my Stock class. With the cost of my diabetic supplies and medication I am not able to afford the cost of the travel and races. I am seeking help in funding to help me get to Norman, OK, for this National race. The race starts on July 23 and ends on July 28th.
