Victory Lane’s second annual Amazing Wheel Race is in the books, providing memorable moments and meaningful connections. The event raised $7,011.01 which will go toward 2022 camp session costs. Race site hosts, team participants, and event features came together to make a difference for Victory families attending camp this summer.
John Dugan of Anytime Fitness was a race site host and is a long-time supporter of Victory Lane. He credits his staff of Adrienne, Larry, and Trent for creating an interactive race stop.
“We love helping our community and working with Victory Lane. Our focus within the community aligns with Victory Lane,” John expressed. “We loved seeing everyone strive to win and witnessing a few competitors overcome their disbelief by completing the challenge.”
Anna Leyes led a team from Wolf Creek Farms Accounting that included her two daughters and granddaughter. She initially joined because she loves the TV show, but the cause is also important to her.
“I love what Victory Lane does for our community. I have a stepbrother and a nephew with special needs and I wish they would have had this when they were youth,” she shared. “It was a fun activity to do with my kids and granddaughter.”
In addition to the Amazing Wheel Race competition, the event included a car show, a bounce house, food trucks, and a remote-control group. Crissy Adams, Alan Ladd, and Eric Murray participated from the Blue Collar Indiana RC club out of Franklin, Indiana. The group has really enjoyed getting to know Victory Lane and the meaning behind what Victory Lane is doing with families with children with special needs.
“We fell in love with Amazing Race and how much the community is involved and love being able to give back,” noted Crissy. “My favorite moment was watching the Amazing Wheel Race Contestants come back from the challenges and all the excitement of the event.”
Plans are already underway for a third annual event in the spring of 2023. For more information or to get involved, please contact Natasha Hamilton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
