A former racer himself, Alan is a NASCAR fan and a Jeff Gordon fan (even more so now!) who purchased his winning ticket on the very first day the program launched! But this isn’t the first year Alan purchased a ticket, because while he’s been blessed with healthy kids, both he and his wife are cancer survivors. Retired after 40 years in the paper industry, Alan hasn’t decided yet exactly how he’ll spend his $5,000, but with his youngest daughter’s wedding coming up it is sure to come in handy.
Thanks again, Alan, for supporting the Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation and childhood cancer research! Alan’s name will go “back in the hat” for the next two $5,000 cash drawings, and the drawing for Jeff’s 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Convertible Collector Edition 3LT – along with everyone else who has already purchased a ticket. If you haven’t yet purchased a ticket, hurry up and do so HERE for the most chances to win…and maybe we’ll be calling you next!
Enroute to see his son before he deploys with the U.S. Army, Robert (Bob) got the good news between flights at Charlotte Douglas International Airport -- less than 10 miles from the Jeff Gordon Children's Foundation office.
Bob was moved to buy his ticket to support a "worthy cause" -- one of his very close friends had Ewing Sarcoma, and other cancers have impacted his immediate family.
Now retired from software development, Bob is looking to the future, planning to invest his winnings into a college fund for each of his two grandchildren.
Thanks again, Bob, for supporting the Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation and childhood cancer research! Bob’s name will go “back in the hat” for the last $5,000 cash drawing, and the drawing for Jeff’s 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Convertible Collector Edition 3LT – along with everyone else who has already purchased a ticket. If you haven’t yet purchased a ticket, hurry up and do so HERE for the most chances to win…and maybe we’ll be calling you next!
Congratulations to the stage 3 winner of our third $5,000 giveaway, Kevin Lowe from Trafalgar, Indiana!
Just when Kevin didn't think his vacation in Mexico could get any better -- he found out he won $5,000!
An avid Jeff Gordon fan, Kevin is well aware of the Foundation's work at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis, not far from his hometown in Indiana.
Just 30 days away from retirement, Kevin isn't yet sure how he'll spend his winnings -- but we're betting THIS vacation might be his best ever!
While in Indianapolis to serve as the pace car driver for the Brickyard 400, Jeff Gordon gave Joe a call.
Joe was THRILLED to find out that he is this year’s winner and will be receiving Jeff’s personal Corvette!
He had joked with his wife earlier that morning he needed to leave his ringer on "just in case Jeff needed to reach him." When his phone rang and he recognized the Charlotte area code...his heart nearly stopped!
Joe has been supporting kids battling cancer through the Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation Corvette program since 2009.
We can't wait to see Joe in Charlotte on August 30th when Jeff will hand over the keys to this beautiful car.
And we hope to see everyone who purchased a Corvette program ticket at this celebration, too! Together, we raised $1 million for childhood cancer research this year and we want to give each supporter a proper thank you.
Mark your calendar to come celebrate with Jeff Gordon, the Jeff Gordon Children's Foundation and your fellow Corvette program ticket-buyers on Wednesday, August 30th in Charlotte, NC -- more details to follow soon.
Keep an eye on your inbox in early August 2017 for the invitation. We’d love for you to be able to attend!
STORY OF CHILDHOOD CANCER SURVIVOR, MARNIE:
The first day of school is always filled with big dreams. And hope.
Marnie’s first day of kindergarten is one her mother, Robbie, will never forget. But it’s for a reason we hope you’ll never have to consider.
Less than 72 hours after walking Marnie into her classroom for the first day of school, Robbie heard an emergency room doctor say: “Your daughter has a malignant tumor in her right kidney. The CT scan caught the lower part of her right lung, so we know the tumor has spread to her lung.” The news only worsened with Marnie’s second scan – the cancer had metastasized into both lungs and the large vein leading into her heart.
After two rounds of chemotherapy to try and shrink the tumor, six-year-old Marnie endured kidney surgery followed by eight days of radiation and nine more rounds of chemotherapy.
Thankfully, Marnie just celebrated seven years of being cancer free. She’s in the seventh grade and loves to sing, act, and play volleyball. But Marnie’s fight is never far from Robbie’s mind, and it has made her a passionate advocate for childhood cancer research.
“When you hear your child has cancer, you need hope. Hope that they will survive. Hope that they will not have long-term effects. Hope that their dreams and wishes in life will come true. Research provides the hope needed to make it through the devastating words – ‘Your child has cancer.’”
You can help provide hope to families like Marnie’s by purchasing a Corvette ticket and funding childhood cancer research for less toxic, more effective treatments that lead to better outcomes for kids diagnosed with cancer.
