Racing Against Leukemia 2012 - a letter from Danielle Moehring
Hi ! My name is Danielle Moehring and I welcome you to a fantastic weekend of Racing against Leukemia.
I was diagnosed with Leukemia in 1989 at 3 years of age and was treated at UMass Medical Center in Worcester Massachusetts and Boston’s Children’s Hospital.
Members of Yankee Sports Car Club along with COM, SCCA and Indoor Model Racing as well as Polar Racing raised money in my time of need. It was decided by my family that this money be used for Leukemia research and bone marrow donor recruiting. RAL (Racing Against Leukemia) was formed in the winter of 1990 by the dedicated efforts of SCCA New England Region drivers Ed Funk, Ed Warkulewicz, Eric Strobe and AMA motorcycle racer John Crowley along with my father Manfred Moehring to benefit childhood Leukemia research at UMass Medical Center.
I am now cured of Leukemia and graduated from college in 2009 with a biology degree and currently working for Seven Hills Foundation of Worcester, MA supporting mentally disabled adults.
RAL is geared toward raising funds for UMass Medical Center in hope of finding a cure for childhood cancer.
Thank you to all who are attending and special thanks for all who have worked over the years for the continued success of RAL weekends. Good luck and may the drivers be protected. May you all be blessed this weekend and days to come. Please feel free during the weekend to talk to me or ask me questions, or if you would like, you may contact me through email email@example.com.
