Young Racing Towards a Cure in Support of Laps 4 MD

As Muscular Dystrophy Awareness Month concludes Canadian resident Ben Young, who competes in the British Superbike Championship (BSB) with Team WD40, is proud to announce his participation in the Laps 4 MD fundraising initiative in support of Muscular Dystrophy Canada.

Celebrating 60 years of progress Muscular Dystrophy Canada supports people affected by muscular dystrophy and related muscle diseases. Together, these rare conditions are referred to as “neuromuscular disorders.” Neuromuscular disorders are a group of diseases that weaken the body’s muscles.



In support of the Laps 4 MD “Race for the Cure”, Collingwood-based custom home builder and longtime sponsor Scot-Build Developments Inc. will donate $2 per lap completed in the Top-15 by Young in the remaining two rounds of British Superbike Championship at the Silverstone GP, 03-05 October and Brands Hatch GP, 17-19 October.

Young earned his best finish of the season so far with 12thplace finish the last time he raced at Silverstone and followed up this result with a 14th place finish at Donington Park earlier in September.

“I’m thrilled to welcome Ben to the Laps 4 MD family of racers and greatly appreciate his and his sponsor Scot-Build Developments’ support! Ben will not only be our first international racer he’ll be the first motorcycle rider to race towards a cure on behalf of Laps 4 MD.” said Laps 4 MD founder Brad Miller

Young will join Laps 4 MD racers NASCAR Canadian Tires Series driver Joey McColm and Canadian Auto Dirt Track Race Shelby Mills who have supported this initiative this season.

“Its an honour to help support Laps 4 MD and their efforts to help make a difference in the lives of over 50,000 Canadians affected by neuromuscular disorders.” said Young

Young encourages Canadian fans to learn more about Laps 4 MD by following @LAPS4MD on Twitter and on Facebook at facebook.com/Laps4MD . Canadians can also learn more about Muscular Dystrophy Canada's mission is to enhance the lives of those affected with neuromuscular disorders at facebook.com/muscle.ca and on Twitter at @MD_Canada.
