Charlotte, N.C. (December 20, 2013) – The holiday season is a time of giving, and on Friday, December 20, in the midst of vigorous preparations for the upcoming 2014 Dakar Rally, Robby Gordon and the SPEED Energy team were able to give both time and gifts to the children who are in a time of need at Levine Children’s Hospital of Charlotte.
This is the most wonderful time of the year for many, Said Gordon because it is a time when you are expected to give. The hospital visit is one of those events where I am able to remove myself from racing for a few hours and get back to reality of everyday life by putting smiles on kid’s faces that need it the most.
Gordon and his SPEED Energy team took photos, signed autographs, and presented each child a collectable Robby Gordon diecast racecar.
We all have the opportunity to bring happiness to a young person's life, said Gordon. Some of these children wont get a chance to spend Christmas at home with their families, but that should not stop them from experiencing the holiday joy.
Giving back to the community is not something new to Gordon and the SPEED Energy team. In 2012 after Super Storm Sandy slammed the Eastern United States knocking out power and destroying homes. The SPEED Energy team helped gather an exceptional amount of clothes, food and supplies and delivered them to a Church in New Jersey to help towards cleaning and rebuilding efforts.
