The Pace Lap Will Be Raising Money For The Victory Junction CampAugust 1, 2011 No Comments
As Branden and I continue on our journeys towards a healthy and happy career in the NASCAR industry, we must pause and remember those that need our help. Whether it be an illness plaguing a young child’s life or a wounded warrior looking for that positive experience to get back on his/her feet, we must always be there to lend a helping hand.
After long talks on how we can help, Branden and I decided to first start by raising money for a foundation. Donations will not only provide unforgettable experiences for those who truly deserve them, but it will also provide funding for medical research and other necessities.
Charity that The Pace Lap will raise money for-
- Victory Junction Camp
Will The Pace Lap Make Any Profit Off of This?
• No. The Pace Lap and its’ writers will not receive any profit, items, etc from this. We are doing this to support the charities and those in need, not for our personal benefit.
Here is some brief information regarding the charity that we will be raising money for-
Victory Junction – Victory Junction has enriched the lives of more than 14,000 children and families since opening in 2004 and welcomed children from 50 states and four countries. Victory Junction serves 24 chronic medical conditions and serious illnesses such as, but not limited to, Autism, Cancer, Craniofacial Anomalies, Diabetes, Hemophilia, Sickle Cell and Spina Bifida. Thirty hospitals partner with Victory Junction to deliver exceptional health care to campers with a variety of needs. The camp, located in Randleman, N.C., is built on 84 acres and donated by Richard and Lynda Petty. The future Kansas facility will be housed on approximately 71 acres. (Credit: VictoryJunction.com)
