Filed under General on May 17, 2019 | Comment(s)

Gilbert, Arizona – May 17, 2019: USA BMX announces that $46,500 in Bob Warnicke  Scholarships for 2019 will be awarded to deserving students and their families. Funds are raised annually through the Warnicke Scholarship Race.  This year 41 awards were given to recipients in 25 states and two Canadian provinces. Grants ranged from $500 to $3,000.

This series of races was created to help fund The Bob Warnicke Memorial Scholarship Fund which assists students and their families in meeting the costs of undergraduate college education, trade school and other education avenues they would like to pursue. USA BMX/BMX Canada members who have a current USA BMX/BMX Canada membership or Track Operators/Officials who participate in BMX racing events sanctioned by USA BMX/BMX Canada are eligible to apply.  Since 2013, more than $350,000 has distributed.

On November 16, 1994, Bob Warnicke passed away at the young age of 48 years old.  Well known for his leadership role and for his many efforts in promoting the sport, Bob's many contributions improved the sport and the image of BMX throughout the years.  He will best be remembered for his instrumental role in bringing BMX to millions of viewers through the airing of the "Road to Glory Series" on ESPN and ESPN2.

More than anything else, Bob was a person who cared deeply about the sport of BMX, and his dedication showed his commitment to the youth who benefited from his efforts. The Scholarship Program preserves Bob Warnicke's legacy of love by contributing to the future of deserving USA BMX / BMX Canada members in his name.  

"We are grateful to all of our tracks who participate in the Warnicke Scholarship Race," said BA Anderson, CEO of USA BMX. "Together with the efforts of the tracks and private donors, USA BMX is proud to continue offering financial assistance for those riders dedicated to continuing their education. We will always support bikes and education!"

The USA BMX Foundation has created an endowment for the Bob Warnicke Memorial Scholarship Fund.  Each year the money raised through the Warnicke Scholarship races and the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony are placed into the endowment.  Donations to the 501(c)3 are always appreciated and utilized for the scholarship fund.
