Type 1diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes 15,000 children and 15,000 adults every year. There is currently no cure.

Thanks to an extremely generous donation of $1,000.00 Kaci's car is now in 4th place. She has to stay in 5th place or less to be a contender to win.

Last month JDRF children from across the country were asked to enter their car design in this unique contest - the winning design will be featured on the No. 21 Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford Fusion scheduled to run at the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway on August 21, 2011. Designs were first submitted locally to JDRF Chapters, and each participating Chapter selected two winning designs to be entered into the national contest.

Kaci's car was one of the lucky 2 for the Austin Chapter. Next, the public (THAT MEANS YOU),has been invited to vote for YOUR favorite car design by making a monetary donation to JDRF.

The top five donation-earning designs will then be narrowed down to one. The winning design will be selected by a committee including representatives from Wood Brothers Racing and FCSD.

Please donate...even a few dollars could make the difference!!! Contest ends June 30th!

Kaci has been saving her allowance this last month - and her Dad promised to match whatever she saved. She saved $39 all by herself. It was matched tonight and we put an additional $78 on her car tonight!!

It would be AMAZING to see her car race NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway on August 21, 2011. Please click on the link below or in my sidebar to donate!
