Bunbury BMX community come together to help fundraise over $6000 for one of their families in need.

The fundraiser for Cory Crombie was held last Friday, January 19. The community of Bunbury came together and dug deep to support the Crombie family through their troubled times.

Over 190 riders and a full crowd packed out the Bunbury BMX Club and put on a great evening of racing. The BMX community in Bunbury congregated at 7:30pm to do a “shout out” on the start ramp to share some words about the Crombie family and the fundraiser, Fifteenfortyfive Racing.

Check out the “shout out” here.
