Candlelighters Photos from 

1999 & 2000

Here are just a few of the pictures from the Candlelighters events so that you can see just how much fun these kids have!

    Cancer and Blood disorders are tough anytime, especially for a child,  but isn't it great to be able to put a smile on their face for a day or a weekend?  Taking these kids to the track is one of the highlights of our ministry.  As a prior racecar driver, it's fun to share stories, show the kids the different cars and be able to explain things to them.  They have some very interesting questions!  But one of the most exciting parts of the weekend is being able to take the kids for a lap (at street speed) around the track and show them how to apex a curve, where and what braking points are, what a driver thinks about and tries to anticipate going into each turn.  

Just look at the smiles on some of these faces.

If seeing these photos touches your heart, and you would like to partner with us in this annual event, please make a tax deductible donation to:  Zoeller Motorsports Ministries.  Don't wait until next year, it might be too late!

 Our goal is to provide a cost free weekend for the Candlelighters families.  Last year 4 families could not attend because of the expense of medical treatments such as,  chemo therapy.  They could not afford to drive over to Sebring or to off set the cost of a room, even at the reduced rates that we got them.  In fact two families didn't have a car that would make the trip.  So anything that you can do to help is a blessing.  God Bless you!

I would like to share a Bible Verse that I found that fits this event very well.

2 Corinthians 8:2-4 
 Out of the most severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity.  For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability. Entirely on their own,  they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the saints.
