BMX Race in Box Elder helps unfortunate children


Kids who may not be able to afford to race BMX had the chance to do so Sunday.
The race was at the Box Elder BMX track.

Riders of all ages showed up to take on the twists and turns.

The track persuades businesses to sponsor memberships, so everyone who wants to, can take a few laps.

And more than just promoting the sport, Track Director Aaron Sumner's says the program is important because it keeps kids off the streets.
"Find the kids that aren't fortunate enough to afford to come out here and just ride their bikes. So that's mainly what our goal is, is to get those younger kids out here and give them something to do, keep them off the streets," says Sumner's. 

Sumner's says they were expecting more than 400 people Sunday, but the wind kept a few of them from coming.
