Support Our Friend Frank This Halloween Season!

Join our fundraiser for Frank plus one ghoulish workout at RaceStart!

Meet our friend,  Frank!

Recently Frank moved here from Bayamon, Puerto Rico to start work at Umansky Motor Cars. Over the last few months Chris, our coach at RaceStart, has spent many hours working with Frank and learning about his story. As we know, Puerto Rico was recently hit by the devastating Hurricane Maria, killing many and leaving the entire island destroyed. Frank had only been in WI for a  year before learning that the eye of the hurricane would come tearing through his home town. Nothing could prepare him for the horrific images he was about to see on the news over the next few days. He felt helpless, disconnected, and terrified. After 5 days of no communion from his family on the island, Frank finally gets word that his family survived. 5 days! Can you imagine!? Frank’s family is one of the many who have been inflicted and left homeless due to the destruction of Hurricane Maria.  Hearing his story really moved me and and my husband. Chris (my husband) could relate because he too was an immigrant to this country and knows what it’s like to start with very little. We decided to take action by providing an opportunity for the community at RaceStart to help raise funds to get Frank’s family to Wisconsin-Where they will be safe again.

This is what makes our Halloween Event and Ghoulish Workout really special this year. It’s giving us an opportunity to give back, and be an aid to Frank and his family in their time of need.

Please join us for another great workout, food, and prizes! If you aren’t able to attend this event please help us in our efforts to reach our goal of raising $1,000 for Frank.

10-31-15 EVENT WAS A SUCCESS

Thank you everyone who made it out for the RaceStart Halloween event!

Our workout changed quite a bit due to the elements…Our original plan was to start out with a mile “Indian pumpkin run”… then complete your team circuit for time….and finally finish with a mile “Indian pumpkin run”….
I know, I know…many of you were very disappointed when you heard that we eliminated the “Indian run” due to the weather, ha!
Despite the weather conditions we still had a great turnout, and one killer workout! We had teams of two rotating through stations…it went a little something like this….
