Oriol Servia Brings Smiles to Children

SEPTEMBER 13, 2012 -- Even though it was very hot today in the Inland Empire (110 degrees), Racing for Kids heated it up even more with an exciting visit to Loma Linda University Medical Center’s Children's Hospital. Panther Dreyer and Reinbold driver Oriol Servia wowed the patients, families and staff for 2 hours outside - assisting 75 patients into and out of his show car, signing autographs, and regaling everyone with "racing talk."

Oriol thoroughly enjoyed the smiles he produced and commented how "important it is to do these visits, and to stay grounded before a race." Oriol is a RFK veteran, having started his association with RFK back in 1999, racing with the Dorricotts and winning the Indy Lights Championship.

“It’s bittersweet visiting with these kids, who have to spend so much time at the hospital,” Oriol told reporters,   “but seeing their big smiles makes every second of my being here more than worth it.”

The mother of a six year old patient, who has been receiving treatments for Leukemia at Loma Linda University for over a year, said how great it was to have Oriol visit.  “We just love all the extra activities the kids are able to do while staying here.  So often they are stuck in their rooms, but being able to come outside for an event like this helps them feel like a normal kid again.”

And hearing feedback like that from the families we serve, really does make it all worthwhile.
