The Asterisk Mobile Medical Center staff would like to thank Jimmy Button and the Road 2 Recovery Foundation for their generous contribution of $25,000 to our program. The donation was presented during intermission at the Monster Energy AMA Supercross FIM World Championship race held at San Diego, California on February 8, 2014. Jimmy Button, Vice President and Co-Founder presented the check to Dr. John Bodnar, the AMMC’s Medical Director, on the podium before a sold out crowd at Qualcomm Stadium. Said Dr. Bodnar, “This donation will go a long way in helping us to keep our riders safe and continue to offer the highest quality of care available to our motocross family. It is particularly personal and poignant to me, given the fact that Jimmy Button was one of my first patients in the early days of the Asterisk Mobile Medical Program. Jimmy understands the importance of having a team of skilled professionals at every racing event, and with their donation, we will be able to continue to strive to meet that goal. Many thanks to Jimmy and Road 2 Recovery”.
