Justin Sweet Perseverance Award Nominations

Post by Joe 313v » Thu Jul 28, 2022 2:32 pm

We are planning to do an award annually for a member who has endured an injury or other type of hardship/ obstacle and had a great attitude as well as Perseverance to push through the hardship and continue forward. This award will be in honor of Justin Sweet who was in a bad crash on his bike on July 4th, 2021. He sustained spinal injuries and is now in a wheelchair. But that didn't stop him from pushing forward, staying positive, and doing everything he could to regain control of his body and his life for himself and his family.

If you know a member that you believe is deserving of this award, please nominate them below along with a short synopsis of what they have gone through. Thanks!

The hardship doesn't have to be a MX injury. It can be an illness, loss of a loved one, work injury, really anything that would be considered a hardship but the member did their best to keep a positive attitude and moved forward despite the hardship. This is also not an award for the person who got hurt the worst. Think of it more as recognition of a person who's great attitude and strength to get through a hard time is inspiring to other members.
