Children's Tumor Foundation (CTF), through their Racing4Research program, has been a long-time fixture of the motorsport scene.

New York, NY (February 4, 2016)- They say that the third time is a charm and that old adage proved true at this year's Racing4Research (R4R) event at the Rolex 24 At Daytona. For the third year, the Foundation partnered with the highly competitive team of Magnus Racing and for the first time ever a car carrying the Children's Tumor Foundation (CTF) logo finished the historic race on top of the podium, with the all-new No. 44 Magnus Racing Audi R8 LMS taking top honors in the GT-Daytona class.

For the past eight years, the names of NF Heroes – children and adults living with neurofibromatosis (known simply as NF) – have been carried on a single car during the historic 24-hour race weekend. For 2016, CTF began a new tradition by spreading the NF Hero names across multiple IMSA teams. Coining the phrase “Embedded Fans”, NF-affected kids and their families were be assigned to specific teams, expanding support of the Foundation across multiple cars throughout the paddock. In addition to Magnus Racing, partner teams carrying the CTF logo included Park Place Motorsports, Turner Motorsport, BAR1, Konrad Motorsport, and Performance Tech Racing.

20151204 133425 smNF Hero Travis Carpenter had the pleasure and the joy of joining philanthropic artist and fellow NF Hero Jeffrey Owen Hanson in Las Vegas for The NASCAR Foundation’s Betty Jane France Humanitarian Awards Gala, an award that honors one dedicated NASCAR fan who has made a profound impact on children by volunteering in his or her local community. Jeff, nominated by the Children's Tumor Foundation, received the most online votes out of four finalists who competed in a nationwide contest that lasted for nearly two months.

Travis’ mom, Kelly, wrote about her family’s experience in Las Vegas.

Viva Las Vegas! We all know that Travis is a racer trapped in a kid's body. T, as his family affectionately calls him, enjoys most every aspect about racing, particularly meeting the drivers. Many of Travis' medical professionals notice a positive change in Travis after spending time at racetracks, even watching races while in the hospital drives his healing.
