ImWithDrew R4R collage 200wOur Racing4Research program recently visited Wisconsin for IMSA’s Continental Tire Road Race Showcase weekend. I traveled to Road America with a heavy heart, having just learned that we were on the verge of losing another NF Hero: 28-year-old Drew Leathers, 2012 CTF Ambassador, the inspiration for Cupid’s Undie Run, and someone I consider to be family.

Drew's battle with schwannomatosis has been nothing short of heroic - the challenges he has overcome are mind-blowing - yet he's always accepted each challenge with a sly smile and brutally funny irreverence. In typical Drew form, he decided to have a party to celebrate his life while he was alive and host a “FUN-eral" at his family’s home, which happened to be the same day as our Racing4Research event at Road America.

NEW YORK, New York (April 27, 2015) - As a practicing surgeon, Dr. Jim Norman knows what it is like to make a positive difference in lives of those struggling with disease. As a race car driver, Dr. Norman also knows what it is like to taste victory with a class win in the 2013 Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona. Beginning at this weekend’s Continental Tire Monterey Grand Prix, Dr. Norman will make a difference in the lives of people living with neurofibromatosis (NF) by carrying the logo of the Children’s Tumor Foundation on his all-new Lamborghini Huracán in his first season competing in the Super Trofeo Series. Victory, it would seem, shouldn’t be far behind.
