@FlamboroSpdwy •(Hamilton, ON (June 03, 2016)- Life for a child threatened by cancer is filled with pain, sacrifice, hospital visits and treatments. This is from the Help a Child Smile website and their Mission Statement is, “An organization focused on children with cancer treated at the Children’s Hospital at Hamilton Health Sciences Corporation by providing opportunities for them and their families to smile and have fun.”
Help A Child Smile Families come from a broad geographical area – Oakville to north of Guelph, to Simcoe, and around the lakes to Niagara and back up to Oakville. Help A Child Smile was born in 1987 from the need to bring some joy into the lives of children with cancer. The wish of a brave young child to go to Wonderland soon after it opened, inspired family and friends, and Help A Child Smile was born.
Now in its third decade, HACS is serving over 1100 families whose child is being or has been treated for cancer at McMaster Children’s Hospital. There are an average of 150 children in active treatment at any given time.
On Saturday June 11th, Flamboro Speedway hopes to bring lots of smiles to these children and their families as they host them at the track. A special attraction that night is our annual Meet the Drivers Night where fans are encouraged to go onto the front stretch and meet the drivers, get photos and autographs and even sit in a race car. Flamboro Speedway is located at 873 5th Concession West, Millgrove (Hamilton), Ontario, 905-659-3042. Offering weekly Stock car racing since 1962, Flamboro Speedway has one of the longest and richest histories in Ontario.
Almost 100 children as well as their families are expected to turn out and Flamboro Speedway is offering FREE admission on the night to all HACS families and their guests!
As a fundraising event for Help a Child Smile, a very generous prize is up for grabs. A 2017 NASCAR Daytona 500 four Day Trioval Club ticket (for four people), travel and tour package is being offered. Some of the great things included are tickets to the 500 as well as three other race events, fan zone passes, 5 day stay at the Hilton, free breakfast, transportation and so much more. Prize package is valued at over $10,000 Canadian. HACS volunteers will be on hand at the track June 11th selling tickets.
Tickets are $10 each or 3 for $25. The draw for this package will be made at Flamboro Speedway at intermission in September 3, 2016.
Please join us Saturday, June 11th and enjoy a great night of stock car racing and “Help a Child Smile.”
