Help Eigo Satos Family - Save a Brother
Early last Friday, the freestyle motocross community was rocked when word of Eigo Sato’s passing spread through social media. Andre Villa and the world’s freestyle community have come together to support his family and organized a fundraiser, “Save A Brother”. Their goal is to raise 200,000 dollars by September through online donations and eBay auctions. Here you can read their message:
"Eigo's passion for the sport of Freestyle Motocross was evident to all who came in contact with him. Eigo's love for his job was surpassed only by his love for his family. This too was evident to all who met Eigo. His passion to be his absolute best on his bike was matched only by his drive to provide for his family as a husband, father and friend. It is not hard to imagine the strain this incredibly unfortunate circumstance has placed on the Sato family. Now that Eigo is no longer with us, it is our responsibility to step in, and step up to the challenge to supporting the family of one of Freestyle Motocross's greatest competitors and personalities.
This is now in our hands. Eigo's family (wife and 2 kids) truly need our help. No matter what you can afford to give, rest assured that your donation plays a huge part in the Sato family's future. Please, make a donation today. With all of our hearts we thank you. God bless and keep you."
