See on Scoop.itSuper STARS | True Heroes of Youth

“Mini’s Mission is a charitable fundraising program. Mini’s Mission wants to win the race against childhood cancer by raising as many donations as possible.

To win this race, in March 2012 Mini’s Mission is proud to partner up with and raise donations for the Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation. The Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for pediatric cancer by funding programs that improve patients’ quality of life, treatment programs that increase survivorship and pediatric medical research dedicated to finding a cure. Their vision is that there will be a day when no child will face the uncertainty of cancer and that successful treatments will not result in negative, long-term effects.

Meet the child behind Mini’s Mission – Timmy “Mini” Tyrrell. In 2010, at age 6, Mini decided that he wanted to help children with cancer after his friend, Ella Day, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. After witnessing her battle, Mini became determined to start raising donations and bring awareness to pediatric cancer through his racing. Mini Timmy has a vision to one day build a hospital for children with cancer but hopes that a cure will be found before then!”
