Beenleigh BMX Club races in memory of Emma.

When Emma Wolter, a beloved mother and member of the Beenleigh BMX Club sadly passed away from a heart condition, the club decided to host an annual memorial race day in her honour.

The ‘Flats and Flannies race day’ is a fun competition that aims to raise awareness of the impact of heart disease to the 1,000 plus riders and their families who attended the event.

“The Beenleigh BMX Committee is striving each year to make the event a great success. We are a very proud organisation who love to support their local community."
