Thursday July 5, 2007 Welcome clothing for infants will be donated to newborns at the Yonge Street Mission (www.ysm.on.ca) in Toronto, Canada during a visit from Chili Pepper Racing and sponsor A Mother’s Arms™, an infant clothing line. The sponsor and driver will be in Canada for the Grand Prix of Toronto July 6-8 participating in the the SPEED World Challenge Touring Car Race.
The 50 infant gowns are a needed commodity at the mission, serving the community since 1896, meeting the needs of homeless and low income families. Keeping the infants comfortable, the donated gowns are a regular product of A Mother’s Arms™.
Chili Pepper Racing’s No. 24 Spice RED MK 5 VW Jetta TDI will be at Exhibition Place in downtown Toronto for the Grand Prix. Owner and driver Jim Osborn will be practicing and qualifying Friday and Saturday in the Speedworld Challenge Touring Series. The SPEED World Challenge Touring Car Race will be held Sunday. The team was recognized earlier this year for their Energy Efficiency in Motorsports introducing the Worlds First Bio-Diesel Touring Race Car at the SPEED World Challenge Series season opener in Sebring Fla.
Chili Pepper Racing raises monies and awareness for charities through racing, and supports the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer. The foundation has been formed by Jim and Amy Jo Osborn after the heartbreaking passing of their infant son, “Hatch”, who died last year from metastatic cancer.
Amy Jo Osborn founded A Mother’s Arms™ clothing line for the very same reason. The high quality line of clothing is manufactured in Peru, thoughtfully designed by Amy Jo. All profits from the sale of the boutique layette apparel go toward providing additional funding supporting research in curing pediatric cancer, including the Austin Hatcher Foundation. Together the two companies hope to grow the awareness, help affected families cope, and towards research for a cure of Pediatric Cancer.
