How Shea Holbrook Works - Duchenne as an Endurance Race

 

Being the founder of an organization that has people in different parts of the country you’ve never met is a little weird for me. In spite of that, I feel very inspired by these women who have all in their own way found what drives them to…

An honorable and heroic mission, Shea. I'm humbled and deeply appreciative that you have dedicated yourself, and your significant talents, towards helping us all keep the hope for our boys revving. Just saying "thank you" just doesn't seem enough, but sincerely thank you.
v/r,
-Dave

Hi Shea. Thanks for replying. I think it's so great what you are doing. Racing to raise money to erase DMd. It's such a horrible disease. Sorry to hear about your cousin matthew. My son is Matthew also. And he is such a great character as well as you said about your younger cousin. where is your home town? I remember you mentioned Watkins Glenn as a place you raced. That's Upstate New York. We have a summer house up there. Ever heard of Lebanon Valley? Anyway, Matthew does not have a facebook page, as well as DMD, he's also Autistic. Although he's high functining, i think Facebook might be too much for him. Keep racing!!!

Shea,
I know the owner of a local (small) race museum here in Riverside, ca. Riverside used to be a big race town until the raceway closed. Loads of fans here nonetheless (now watch at Fontana raceway which is close to here) and I'd like to e-mail them something for/from you! Often toyed with the idea of doing a local fundraiser at this museum and trying to get car talk guys to come out for it! May I have a private way to connect with you...e-mail is good. Best- cheryl
