TimWagaman Racing Kid’s Night Event @ Lincoln Speedway
Please join Tim Wagaman Racing and the Teddy Bear Toss for a fun night at Lincoln Speedway this Saturday, June 23, 2012. We are partnering with this local charity which raises funds for research for pediatric cancers by asking all children and/or people attending the races that night to bring a (or a bunch of) stuffed animal for an annual Teddy Bear toss that takes place each December. Kids can also download color pages from our Kids Korner on http://www.timwagaman.com
to color and bring that night or create something of your own to be entered into an art competition for specific age groups.
The Teddy Bear Toss is a fundraiser that Ms. Abbey Rhodes started after an encounter with a tumor in her chest the summer before her freshman year of high school. During that summer she was placed with the kids at Johns Hopkins that had cancer and while luckily her tumor turned out not to be cancerous, the children she met inspired her to begin this charity. Every year people come to a girl’s basketball game at Southwestern High School, where people throw stuffed animals and donate money. The organization also sells "Pay It Forward" bracelets, t-shirts, and places toilet seats in an attempt to “flush out cancer.” If you live in or around Hanover you might have seen them!
We have chosen to partner with them again this year during Kids Night in an attempt to raise awareness about pediatric cancers and to show children that they can help other kids too! Please join us as we attempt to gather the largest number of donations for this event to date. Come out and join Tim Wagaman Racing as we work to show children that anyone can be a hero who helps to fight cancer. Visit http://www.timwagaman.com
