CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – It seems that car racing isn’t the only thing that driver Ryan Walls, is good at doing. He, his family, and crew are darn good at helping people with cancer.
Team driver Ryan Walls and good friend Johnnie Reed wanted to use the RWR Racing Team to help raise awareness for breast cancer.
On July 18, the team held its first benefit car show at the Christian Life Church. The benefit raised $2,300 to support the Rhonda Brake Shreiner Women’s Center, an affiliate of Summit Health.
Vehicles featured included classics, antiques, muscle, street rod, daily driver, trucks, racecars, and motorcycles. The top thirty cars in the show received trophies. In addition to the show, car enthusiasts were offered chicken dinners, homemade cakes, ice cream, and music provided by ELP Entertainment.
“The weather got the day off to a rough start. It poured in the morning before the show started. Winds gusted so hard that one of the tents landed on the roof of the church,” said Laura Umbrell, LPN, Breast Patient Navigator for Rhonda Brake Shreiner Women’s Center. “However, once the clouds parted and the rain stopped, the racing fans and exhibitors came out in full force with their support and was a fantastic day.”
“We are grateful to have kind people like RWR Racing out in the community making a difference for cancer patients. Every event held and every dollar given helps provide cancer care to our community,” Umbrell said.
Rhonda Brake Shreiner Women’s Center offers breast cancer screening, diagnosis, and navigation services. They have been designated as a breast-imaging center of excellence by the American College of Radiology.
