Whitney and Austin Dillon

We are excited that the Childress/Dillon family is growing this year! Austin and Whitney are getting married in December, and you can give $33 in their honor to send a child to football safety camp.

Austin Dillon has visited kids at hospitals across the country, including Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Ohio and Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU, to share a little cheer. Austin loves spending time with the kids, noting they could grow up to be future crew chiefs and engineers in NASCAR. A childhood injury doesn’t have to prevent them from living a full, productive life.

The Institute provides funding and research so that children like the ones Austin visited can have a chance at a normal life, even after a traumatic injury. Hopefully one day we will be cheering for these kids and all that they will accomplish.
