What is special this year: This year we are very proud and excited to add another dimension to this event, one of philanthropy and charitable giving. We’ve decided to turn our attention to a dear friend and supporter of the Northwest Alfa Romeo Club in an effort to help his family in their most dire time of need. Many of you may know Scott Bradley, a Porsche Club of America nationally certified instructor and a tireless supporter of and volunteer for many local clubs with their track and driving events... NWARC, PCA, Corvette, Audi, BMW, Proformance, Swerve, just to name a few. Scott’s daughter Kathryn “Panda” Bradley is 19-years old and has been battling Glioblastoma for most of her life, and she is now facing a very critical prognosis on her condition as of late last year. The treatment Kathryn needs is very specialized and is not entirely covered by the family’s insurance. Please take a minute to read the family’s blog at Kathryn Panda Bradley and find out what they have been dealing with for quite some time. It is truly amazing what individuals and families are capable of handling when they are surrounded by caring family, friends, neighbors, and community.

That’s where you come into the picture. By participating in this event, whether as a registered driver, spectator, sponsor or volunteer, you will have a direct affect on Kathryn's life and chances for obtaining the treatment she needs. The Enduro Challenge has never been a “for-profit” event, but while having fun we can certainly find some ways to generate extra money to support the Bradley family. For those of you interested in donating independent of the Karting Enduro Challenge, please visit any Umpqua Bank and ask to make a deposit into the Carol Bradley Family Fund.

Event Sponsors – We’re looking for generous individuals, companies and organizations to help us sponsor the event costs this year:
Venue: Covers cost of Skykart track and kart rental ($1,750)
Catering: Covers cost of lunch and drinks for drivers and spectators ($250 - $300)
Event Shirts: Covers the cost of shirts and print production ($550 - $750, depending upon color and logo placement)
Trophies: Donated by Ridge Racing School

Team/Lap Sponsorship – This year we thought it would also be fun to ask each driver and/or team to go out and get their own “per lap” sponsorship in an effort to generate more donations for the Bradley Family. This will be simple, just ask your friends, family, co-workers and neighbors for a small pledge for each lap that your team completes... And of course you should promise them the overall win! Encourage them to view the Bradley family blog, and invite them to the event if they’ve never seen wheel-to-wheel racing. Their donations will go directly to the Carol Bradley Family Fund. There will be a prize awarded to the team which generates the highest per lap donation (to be announced).

Raffle Donations/Bidding: – We are scouring the area and blanketing our email lists in an effort to secure a few exciting items to raffle during the event. Hopefully our friends within the business community will come up with a few choice products and services, and if anyone has suggestions or contacts at companies that could donate a product or service for this raffle please contact Mirko Freguia ([email protected]) or Dennis Tyler ([email protected]). Also plan to bring your wallet and support the raffle at the event.

Please contact Mirko Freguia at [email protected] (206.795.0861) or Dennis Tyler at [email protected] if you are interested and able to help with any one of these opportunities. Look for follow-up emails and announcement on Facebook (Please “Like” the event page).

Special thanks to Fred Wright/Ridge Racing School for donating the event trophies, and to Turn2 Lapping, Inc. for donating the credit card processing for this event.

Thanks, and see you at the Enduro!
