EVENT: Haymakers for Hope Boston 2015

EVENT DATE: May 14, 2015

THE STORY:

Each year, I have the privilege of driving children fighting this disease around a New Hampshire race track.  I strap them into a race seat (on a pillow) with full harnesses for some high speed laps.  For a short while these kids forget their problems as they scream with glee on every turn.  I love helping these children enjoy this unique thrill, but the gravity of the situation always hits me.  Sooner or later, my sunglasses are hiding my tears for these kids. We never know the details, so we all wonder whether our little co-pilots won their own battles.

I am dedicating this fight to my wife's family in memory of Dr. John Bargoot and his only son John John.  John John was a beautiful child who lost his battle at age 12.  Dr. Bargoot was an awesome grandfather to my own sons before losing his own battle later in life.  I always felt the life-long pain of Dr. Bargoot's loss watching him with his grandsons.  No parent should suffer the loss of a child to this disease.
 
I greatly appreciate your support! Come to the fight if you can. I am training hard to become competitive in 14 pain-filled weeks for this cause.

Donations benefit Haymakers for Hope with proceeds going to Boston North Cancer Association.
