Much Like the “NF Heroes” the Foundation Supports, Three Scrappy Porsche GTD Teams Overcame Hardships to Complete the Rolex 24 At Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Florida (January 28, 2014) – All three Porsche 911 GT America teams racing in support of the Children’s Tumor Foundation’s (CTF) Racing4Research program at this past weekend’s Rolex 24 At Daytona persevered through a slew of endurance racing setbacks and, like the amazing “NF Heroes” they race to support, never gave up in meeting their goal of finishing America’s premier 24-hour race.

The Children's Tumor Foundation (CTF) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to finding effective treatments for the millions of people worldwide living with neurofibromatosis – known simply as NF – that is a common yet under-recognized genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body. NF affects one in every 3,000 people, more than cystic fibrosis, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and Huntington’s disease combined. The CTF funds critical research into neurofibromatosis. In addition to benefiting those who live with NF, this research is shedding new light on several forms of cancer, brain tumors, bone abnormalities, and learning disabilities, ultimately benefiting the broader community.20140125-a-4661
