HEARTLAND PARK TOPEKA TEAMS UP WITH CAPPER FOUNDATION EASTER SEALS AND THE SCCA
TOPEKA, Kan., (October 11, 2007) Heartland Park Topeka and the Capper Foundation are teaming up to raise money for children with disabilities at the 44th annual SCCA National Championship Runoffs® presented by AT&T.
Mike Rogers, Formula Vee racer, grew up in the Topeka area and now resides in Texas. Rogers’s association with Cappers is one that hits close to home. His father, suffering from polio, was a beneficiary of Cappers programs. When Rogers’s father passed away the family farm in Osage County was put into a charitable trust to benefit the Capper Foundation and Rogers wants to continue giving back.
He’s giving back by incorporating two things he’s passionate about, Cappers and racing.
Heartland Park is helping Rogers and his fundraising efforts by bringing awareness to his cause. Children benefiting from Cappers will be guests of Heartland Park on Saturday, October 13, and will have the opportunity to meet Rogers. The young guests will also be able to watch Rogers compete for the national championship on Sunday, October 14.
