X Games two time gold medalist and active philanthropist, Ryan Sheckler, will host Down for Life — Fight for a Cause. The Friday night fight supports the mission of his non-profit organization, The Sheckler Foundation. The multi discipline event will take place at The Grove in Anaheim, California on Friday, February 6th at 7:00pm, the night before the Monster Energy Supercross Series kicks off. The evening will also feature a performance by a special musical guest.
Professional athletes, Travis Pastrana, Brian Deegan, Jason Ellis, Kit Cope, Erik Apple and Danny Abbadi will be among the guests who head to the ring to raise money for charitable causes supported by The Sheckler Foundation. Charities benefiting from this contest include Road 2 Recovery, which provides financial assistance to seriously injured motocross and supercross athletes and their families and Talk About Curing Autism, TACA, which provides information, resources, and support to families affected by autism.
"I like raising money, but I love giving it to worthy causes, even more. I believe there will be a cure for cancer in my lifetime." Ryan Sheckler
The Sheckler Foundation is happy to join forces with Fight Night, LLC to make this spectacular event possible.
