Goodguys Rod and Custom Association and The Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer has announced they will be continuing their partnership to raise funds and awareness for the Foundation’s mission to erase the effects of pediatric cancer for patients, survivors and their families in 2017. The partnership will provide the Foundation with opportunities of providing diversionary therapy to children and families receiving treatment for pediatric cancer as well as to provide much-needed therapies, in a variety of cities throughout the United States.
The AutoCross for Kids offers Goodguys car show attendees opportunities at selected shows a chance to ride with Pro AutoCross competitors on a specially-prepared closed performance AutoCross course in exchange for a specified donation to the Austin Hatcher Foundation. The AutoCross for Kids promotion will be held on Fridays and Sundays at select events
During each event weekend, the Foundation also will partner with a local hospital to bring its innovative Diversionary Therapy program to children and families in the pediatric oncology units. The program is designed to help patients, survivors and their families enjoy leisure time by building and racing the Foundation’s pinewood derby cars, in the process offering a simple but effective diversion from the challenges presented by pediatric cancer. Goodguys will enhance the program by inviting members of the local hot rod community to participate and display collectable cars.
