CORNWALL — The Race for the Cure Series made one lucky mother really happy Sept. 25 as Steve Morris for TAS Racing along with Jacques and Claudette Lavergne from the Cornwall Motor Speedway visited Maxville resident Angela Brown and provided her with a check of $5,394.
All funds were collected during the summer at Cornwall Motor Speedway with the TAS Racing Sportsman car on display, lap sponsorship during the final race of the Series and drivers also walking through the stands and collecting funds from the fans and race teams.
The display of collective generosity will allow Brown, currently in treatment for breast cancer, to breathe a little bit more freely as the money collected will go towards paying for expensive treatments. Brown, the mother of a young child, was very pleased and couldn’t thank everyone enough for their involvement in the project. She’s set to be Morris’s guest at the Speedway’s banquet of champions in April.
Morris and TAS Racing would like to team up again with Cornwall Motor Speedway to organise the Race for the Cure Sportsman Series and find new way to gather money for a new family in need next year.
The Lavergne family expressed thanks to Steve Morris and TAS Racing for the efforts put into the initiative, with the Speedway “looking forward to bigger and better things for next season!”
