Austin Hatcher Foundation Teaming Up With Record-Setting Motorcyclist On Diversionary Therapy Visit to Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital

HERSHEY, PENNSYLVANIA – Monday, July 28, at 10:30 a.m. the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer (AHFPC) is teaming up with Jack Broomall, motorcycle land speed record holder, to brighten the day of patients and families at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital as part of the Foundation’s Diversionary Therapy Program.

“This Diversionary Therapy visit is the culmination of a multiple-year partnership during which Jack has continually demonstrated his willingness to make a difference in the lives of families facing pediatric cancer,” said Mark Osmundson, The Foundation’s senior director of marketing and sponsor relationships. “He has visited with hundreds of kids, raised thousands of dollars, and sought many other ways to advance our mission to erase the effects of pediatric cancer. We are very grateful to have him in our Foundation family.”

On July 27th Broomall will be auctioning off his BMW S1000RR as part of the Mecum Auction at Pennsylvania Farm Show and Expo center in Harrisburg, Pa. Proceeds will benefit the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer and its efforts to erase the effects of Pediatric Cancer. On July 28, Broomall and the AHFPC team are expected to see nearly 30 kids from the Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital and will help them build and paint the Foundation’s signature pinewood derby cars. This event offers families a unique escape from the daily realties of pediatric cancer.
