Sportsman 2 driver Don Williams bringing Race Fans For a Cure to Championship Off Road Racing
Indianapolis, Ind. (August 4, 2004)-As devastating as cancer has been to thousands of families, Don Williams knows first hand what kind of impact the disease takes on loved ones. In the fall of 2002, Williams' girlfriend, Sue Lustig, was diagnosed with breast cancer. After treatments, she has been cancer free since the spring of 2003.
Williams joined the Race Fans for a Cure foundation, seeking to bring awareness to breast cancer. All money raised in the program goes to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation for the fight against breast cancer.
"This (the program) is something that is good even though cancer is so bad. This program means a lot to the whole team," said Williams.
At the last CORR Lucas Oil Series event at Heartland Park Topeka, fans signed the hood of his Sportsman 2 truck for a small donation. The hood was white and decaled with the pink ribbon of hope.
"Some people just need to know that they are not alone," noted Williams. "We will do this for as long as we can. Taking a bad thing and try to make something good that makes it all worth it!"
Although Race Fans for a Cure is popular in the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series, Williams is ecstatic to bring the program to off-road racing. For more information, visit www.racefansforacure.com.
Williams will continue the Race Fans for a Cure program next week in Bark River, Michigan (August 14-15) and Crandon, Wisconsin (September 4-5).
