Ohsweken, Ontario – June 12, 2013 – Ohsweken Speedway’s 18th season of racing continues this Friday, June 14 when Six Nations Bingo presents Sunshine Foundation Night, featuring the Corr/Pak Merchandising Sprint Cars, Affordable Towing & Recovery Thunder Stocks, HRW Automotive Mini Stocks, and Gale’s Auto Aftermarket Bombers.
SUNSHINE FOUNDATION NIGHT
Sunshine has been trusted by families and healthcare providers to make dreams come true for kids across Canada since 1987. The Sunshine Foundation is the only national Canadian charity to provide individual dreams to children with severe physical disabilities (such as spina bifida or cerebral palsy) as well as life-threatening illnesses.
Sunshine is the legacy of a father’s love for his son. After losing his teenage son to muscular dystrophy, a London, Ontario police officer created The Sunshine Foundation of Canada to brighten the lives of other children and families by fulfilling their most cherished dreams – from meeting a sports hero, to seeing a foreign country, or having a special gift like an adaptive bicycle.
Ohsweken Speedway is proud to partner with the Sunshine Foundation this Friday. Please visit www.Sunshine.ca for more information on the Sunshine Foundation.
