“The reason I chose Kids in Distress is because I can relate to being a child with very few clothes because I am a product of Foster Care and Adoption. We at Cleveland Construction Offshore Racing Team are very conscious of the personal valve that is in our children.” -Ed Smith
The Cleveland Construction Offshore Race Team was invited to do a Community Project Fundraiser called Big Toys for Big Boys. The event consisted of 100 men in St. Clair County displaying their “toys” allowing for each to pick a local charity in the St. Clair County area to represent. The Cleveland Construction Offshore Race Team chose to represent Kids in Distress.
Each participant had to put $100 into a pot along with a card with their name and charity on it, then at the end of the evening 5 random cards with the charity and name of the participant were drawn. Each one of those 5 men has 2 minutes to make a sales pitch and convince the other 95 men to vote for their favorite local charity. The participant with the most votes received a minimum of $10,000 for their charity, program, or project of choice. After being chosen as one of the 5 participants, the Offshore Race Team won $10,000 to donate to Kids in Distress.
“I am very proud of my fellow racers and fans that helped us with Team Timmy. I don’t know what to say but “THANKS” for all of your support with this, which is something I hold very close. We raised over $23,700, which will help a lot towards these families. So again, thank you to everyone that made this possible!” -Ed Smith
Team Timmy started in 2008 in memory of Timothy Hunter Larson, who lost his battle with cancer at the young age of 4, Team Timmy is a non-profit helping families affected by childhood cancer. Team Timmy was started by Diane Larson & Kristi Rycerz to help other families through the rollercoaster ride of childhood cancer and to bring more public awareness to childhood cancer.
Team Timmy puts together care packages in camouflage tote bags that are filled with toiletries and items that help make hospital stays more comfortable. Small toys, coloring books, crayons, and most importantly a fishing pole are also included in the tote bags. During his 2-year battle with cancer, Timmy found a passion for fishing, which helped him and his family cope with his illness and helped make many wonderful memories. Because fishing was so important to Timmy and his family, it was felt necessary to include a fishing pole in hopes that it will help another family through the rollercoaster of childhood cancer.
