In early February, BOSS Racing learned the story of a 14 year old snocross fan named Jordan Addis, from Burlington, Wisconsin.
Jordan was diagnosed in June of 2010 with rare T-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He received a bone marrow transplant from an anonymous registry donor on January 28, 2011 and spent weeks in intensive care, reeling from the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation.
A co-worker of Jordan’s father reached out to the BOSS Racing team because of Jordan’s love of snocross and motorsports as a whole. The team quickly got to work in rallying its allies and the response has been overwhelming! The initial wave of support came from BOSS sponsors; Lucas Oil, Stud Boy, 509 Goggles, DP Brakes, Wahl Brothers and Ski-Doo.
Within a day, word spread to more industry companies, teams and individual racers. Support came from athletes in Snocross, Hillclimb, Cross-Country and Watercross. Several racers are now running stickers on their sleds to honor Jordan’s fight and carry him to a metaphoric victory.
BOSS Racing has invited Jordan and his family to Lake Geneva for the final round of the ACSS and ISOC Racing has joined us in honoring Jordan ( aka ‘The Boss’) at this event. All of us at BOSS Racing wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to those in the snowmobile industry who have supported Jordan in his fight.
The Boys @ BOSS are looking forward to an exciting weekend of racing in Lake Geneva and a chance to send a message of support to Jordan and his family. Jordan is now recovering at home and in spite of his progress, he still has a long road ahead of him.
