It’s been a huge week here at Winton Motor Raceway with some significant announcements.
The Supercars in May, the Holden Last Lap in January.
Events we are very proud of and genuinely excited about.
This one though is the one that is close to our hearts.
For the first time, Winton Raceway is having a Junior Ambassador.
Introducing 7 year old Parker Moodie.
Parker is a kind hearted, cheeky and strong willed lad who loves lego, cars and all things machinery.
From when Parker was born he has suffered in pain and has been restricted as to what he can do, and what other kids his age take for granted.
Parker has been in and out of hospital all of his life, including several attempts of chemotherapy, all of which have been unsuccessful.
He has always had though, the support of his his dad Ross, mother Mel and younger sister Ava and friends.
Tragically, in 2017, Mel also was diagnosed with a tumour in her brain. Through hard work and determination, Mel has undertaken chemo and radiation treatment where her neurosurgeons have got to the point that they have an amount of confidence about her future.
Winton Raceway reached out to the Monash Children’s Hospital where, after extensive searching, Parker was selected as our Junior Ambassador.
What does this mean? Parker is going to be attending our events and will be helping raise money for the tremendous
Kids With Cancer Foundation Australia.
There are more stories than just Covid out there to tell, and we want to be sure that there remains an awareness of the challenges that Parkers family, and all families that have Kids with Cancer face.
We are committed to help the cause, and on Monday at 11:00am we will show it here live.
We also hope that you can help, like Rod Wilson from Zagame Automotive already has.
We ask that you donate to this great cause by entering the following details.
NAME: Kids with Cancer Foundation Australia
BSB: 032 388
It’s been a tough year for all, none more so than all of these incredible families.
Winton Raceway is proud to do its part to help.
