Racing For a Cure

Good Morning everyone!-

We hope you’ve been enjoying all of our updates leading into this weekend. We’re happy to bring before you a “feel good” story to lead you into Saturday . We are happy and honored to bring you the story of Kaitlyn Singh. She is a 10-year-old girl with a strength 10 times that of her youth.

She has recently been diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis; a genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow on any nerve in your body at anytime. There are no treatments for NF and no cure. NF is a progressive disorder where some people have few or no complications while others aren’t so lucky. It can cause learning disabilities, blindness, disfigurement, bone abnormalities, brain and spinal tumors, and many other complications. It affects 1 in 3,000 births and can show up and anytime. There’s a program however that’s helping to find a cure called Racing4Research. That my friends leads us to her heroic cousin Trevin Aswarnauth.

Trevin is Kaitlyn’s 15-year-old cousin who races every Tuesday @Charlotte Motor Speedway (Summer Shootout Series) and every Thursday @Atlanta Motor Speedway (Thursday Thunder) in Car #89. Trevin is a happy, jovial young man with a positive outlook on life hence his purpose in racing for a cure. His dedication, confidence, and support can also be seen by his custom hood bearing Kaitlyn’s image and donation website:

We plan on catching up with Trevin and Kaitlyn at one of the Thursday Thunder series races and we couldn’t be more excited.

This beautiful story is taking place right here in Atlanta. Where a 15-year-old races twice a week in high hopes of finding a cure for his cousin. As if being a teenager doesn’t have its own obstacles he goes out in avid support of his cousin. We absolutely love what he’s doing and are honored to meet them in weeks to come.

We hope everyone has a great and safe weekend and remember to live, laugh, and love!
