Misix and Heroes for Children are partnering together to organize a day at the races. Friends, board members and volunteers of Heroes for Children will sit together in Section 106. Race track owner, Seth Angel, is providing a generous block of discounted tickets to support this event.
TJ is a family man blessed with two healthy children. He understands that treating children and teens with cancer is about more than just medicine – it also involves the human spirit. If this event can alleviate the stress of the children and families battling cancer, for any amount of time, then it is time well spent.
When TJ races at the O’Reilly Auto Parts NHRA Spring Nationals on April 27-29 — he will do so in honor of Heroes for Children. His dragster will carry decals with the Heroes for Children logo surrounded by the autographs of patients he meets earlier in the week while hosting an afternoon ‘patient party’ at Texas Children’s Hospital. Heroes for Children provides financial and social support to families in Texas with children battling cancer. To learn more, visit http://www.heroesforchildren.org/
