TOPEKA (KSNT) – A fundraiser was held at Heartland BMX on Wednesday evening to mark the funeral of DaMya Hudnall, the 13 year old who was killed in the event of an accidental recording.
DaMya’s father, Clarence Hudnall, has been cycling the route for years.
To support him and help the family with funeral expenses, bikers from across the state took part in a race that cost $ 10 per participant, with all of the money raised going back to the family.
In total, the fundraiser raised more than $ 1,000 for DaMaya’s family.
“We just want to help,” said Corey Shepard, Heartland BMX track operator. “We are a big family. BMX is a family world, so we will help our riders and our families as best we can.”
