Holiday of Smiles

Wednesday, December 2, 2009

Yesterday the National office celebrated the Holiday of Smiles at the Church of God Children's Home.

We had local track champions there to share in the special occasion along with Autotrader.com representatives. Our featured guest of the night was Kyle Busch.

Together we handed out gifts to all of the children and then had time to make cookies and have pictures made with our drivers. We all enjoyed ourselves while having a nicely prepared dinner with the kids.

A special thank you to all of our sponsors for making the Holiday of Smiles possible.  Without the generosity of Autotrader.com, Kyle Busch Motorsports, Kyle Busch, GameStop, PPG, Sam Bass, Office Depot Foundation, Old Spice, Tony Stewart, Otis Spunkmeyer, Lowe's Home Improvement, and Speedway Motorsports the evening would not have been possible.

To me, this is what the holidays are all about. Putting smiles on kid's faces and making them part of our extended Speedway Children's Charities family.

On Thursday, July 23 I was fortunate to attend an event in Chicago where the Office Depot Foundation and NASCAR star Tony Stewart joined forces to donate 5,000 backpacks to non-profit organizations and schools in the Indianapolis area.

 

Speedway Children's Charities is proud to be a part of the backpack program with Office Depot and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to meet several of the other recipients for the program.  We will be giving out the backpacks to deserving children in the community.  We would like to thank Tony Stewart and Office Depot for their dedication to children across the country in providing the necessary supplies for a better education.

Thanks again to all involved.

Sincerely,

Dream come true

Monday, July 6, 2009

After watching race after race for several years, Cole had the opportunity to see his first real race at the Coca Cola 600 in May of this year. For our "special" son Cole , it was an unbelievable dream come true.

The excitement he felt from the first moment we drove up and saw the stadium to his last goodbyes, was an extraordinary excitement. Cole communicates to us through a variety of modes including some sign language, verbal sounds, gestures and expressions, and with the aide of a powerful communication device, known to us as his "talker". That weekend, he used all methods to communicate to us his extreme joy for being able to see first hand, the love of his life, NASCAR racing.

Upon returning to school the next day, his teachers told us that he could not wait to use his "talker" to tell of all the things he saw at the race--- pit row, the checkered flag, the drivers (by their names), and how he heard his favorite words ever -- "gentlemen, start your engines". It is an excitement that we have continued to talk about weeks after the event, and will likely for months to come!

Our sincere thanks to all those who helped coordinate such a wonderful weekend for our family, truly our son's dream come true.

The foundation was founded following the attempted hostage rescue mission in Iran.
