GRANTS PASS, Ore. — ¬†At the Josephine County Fairgrounds Sunday were the BMX bike races. The River City BMX just got a new President, Bill Silva, and he said he is looking to organize future events to benefit the community.

“We’re trying to do fundraisers for both the track and for the community, because it is all non-profit,” said Silva. “We’re going to try and get together, bikeathons, and combined both a cancer and for the River City BMX, to raise money for both. Things that we would like to do in the future of this year,” explained Silva.

The River City BMX holds races three to four times a week, including weekends. Silva said the organization keeps kids active and off the streets.
