WORD MORE CLEARLY DEFINES THE GOALS AND OBJECTIVES OF THE RECOVERY RACE PROJECT
- Through INSPIRATION, hopefully more and more people facing a serious illness can RECOVER.
- With greater public awareness and increased funding of research, more and more people
- FACT.-Since its inception in 1987, the RECOVERY RACE PROJECT has raised almost $200,000-most
of which has been earmarked DIRECTLY toward specific cancer research!
- FACT.-The RECOVERY RACE PROJECT, specifically in the form of the race boats pictured
here, carries a message of INSPIRATION wherever we race. I was stricken with cancer
in 1979. My RECOVERY was aided by the INSPIRATION I received from a friend who visited
me in the hospital. He himself had recovered from cancer several years earlier. The
RECOVERY RACE BOAT is a loud, visible, almost living symbol of the very same message
I received from my friend. It is, in effect, a "140 mph hospital visit!"
- INSPIRATION, coupled with EDUCATION, is a vital part of the future of our country.
- FACT:Since 1992, the RECOVERY RACE PROJECT has fully funded three scholarships at
local colleges, including The Alvin Hayim/Sam Walton Fund added in the summer of 1994.
All of these scholarships have gone to underprivileged students seeking their "break!"
- INSPIRATION is ... an unending and ever increasing COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE!
challenges of competition on the race course are no different than the challenges
of life and the ever-increasing pressures that confront each of us as we grow older.
To work harder and harder-to see and feel the fruits of one's labors, is no different
on land or sea, at work or on the race course, or in any one of life's challenging
- It is my personal belief that success in any one endeavor is a wonderful indicator
of the odds of continued success in all others!
