One of the things I have always loved about SCCA is the charity work we do for the community. The St. Louis Region is doing one again this year on 9/21 & 9/22 - this one is personal as the donations will be looking for a cure that I need.
Hope you can attend the event! Hope to see you there!

The St. Louis Solo Program is holding a Charity Event to collect donations for the Pedal the Cause on Sept. 21-22 (Event # 9 & #10) at Family Arena. Win a NEW Helmet at the raffle (donated by Solo Performance Specialties)
100% of the money raised stays in St. Louis to fund cancer research at The Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital.
Dave Whitworth stated “My mom, Jan Rick, was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in June 2013 and we plan on riding to help raise funds to find a cure for this disease and other cancers.
I am joining the fight against cancer by participating in the fourth-annual Pedal the Cause bike challenge. Pedal the Cause has the mission to provide funding for cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital through their annual cycling challenge in hopes that the research funded by their event will ultimately lead to a cure for cancer.”
“I plan to ride 15 miles on October 6th and I hope you will join me in this grass-roots effort to advance research and find a cure.”
If you are interested in riding contact Dave Whitworth at firstname.lastname@example.org If you can donate please do so, or attend the Solo Event September 21-22 and donate there!
Jan Rick said "The SCCA community of people from St. Louis and all over the country have been so supportive. Solo, road racers, rallycrossers, and everyone have been unbelievable. The friendships made over cars have gone so much farther. The SCCA community is such a blessed thing." Our thoughts are with Jan, her family, and friends.....keep up the fight!
