Make-A-Wish Heroes Hurrah

At the end of July, the team was invited to bring Car 51 to the concluding celebration of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Michigan's Heroes Hurrah bicycle race at the Chelsea Fairgrounds in Chelsea, Michigan. This was the first opportunity for many of the MAW staff to see Car 51 and the beautiful Make-A-Wish photograph emblazoned on her in-person, as a result of the team's partnership with MAW in our 2008 Race for a Cause campaign.

We had a great time at the Heroes Hurrah, spending the afternoon talking with hundreds of Make-A-Wish supporters and their families as they came cruising across the finish line. As is very typical with our putting cars on display, we encouraged many kids to sit in Car 51 and be a race car driver for a few minutes. It is always gratifying to see their faces light up as they grab the wheel.

Thanks again to Susan Lerch, Kedrin Gall and all of the fantastic employees of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Michigan for welcoming the team so warmly and allowing us to be a part of your organization this past racing season. It is an honor to be a part of a cause that is so worthwhile.
