Mini Tyrrell, through his Mini's Mission "Burn Rubber to Help Another" fundraising program, is honored to announce a $10,000 donation to the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation to commemorate the start of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month on September 1. Mini is grateful to the Lake Jackson Volunteer Fire Department and the Loyal Order of Moose in Manassas, Va. for their incredible fundraising efforts that made the $10,000 donation possible.
"Thank you to the Lake Jackson Volunteer Fire Department and the Loyal Order of Moose in Manassas for their continued support of my mission," Mini said. "They raised $10,000 to help children impacted by pediatric cancer. I can't thank them enough for donating to this great cause."
For the past 15 years, the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation has paired children battling brain tumors and other childhood cancers with a sports team or athlete to build a connection of love, support and friendship during treatment.
In September 2019, Mini was the featured speaker at the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation's gala where he discussed the importance of support and friendship for children and families impacted by cancer. A few weeks later, Mini and his race team adopted 10-year-old Ethan Dixon, who has been battling leukemia, as an honorary team member.
Over the last decade, Mini's Mission "Burn Rubber to Help Another" has raised more than $475,000 for childhood cancer research and quality of life programs, as well as other charitable initiatives.
