I got this from Indy RC...

Dear Friend

Recently one of our local racers (Travis Roper) sent his four daughters off to church with a friend. As they were waiting to turn in to the church parking lot they were hit in the rear by a car doing 70 mph. This spun them around and into an oncoming SUV then the first car hit them again. Both the SUV and the second hit from the first car hit the door where Travisí 9 year old daughter Hope was sitting. Everyone in the car was injured in some manner but Hope receive severe head trauma. Hope put up the good fight for three weeks before losing her battle. Hope had been around the track and had a good time with her dad here; she liked RC and the racing. Hope would have been 10 years old on Apr.15 2009.

This Race and Raffle is in her memory and to assist the family in their time of need. All proceeds from our race entries and our snack bar will go to the Hope Fund. We would like to make the Raffle something very special to show the great heart of our RC community. At this time we have 6 of the hobby shops from Dallas/Ft. Worth area involved this should end up being 10 to 15 when we are to the race date. We also have asked a number of our suppliers and manufactures to step up and donate for our Raffle. Our ticket price will be $5.00 or 5 for $20.00. With that in mind we have received donations such as engines, car kits, servos and a custom install of a LoJack in a real car. We are talking with Xtreme RC Mag. to do a human interest story on the Race and Raffle to show the best side of RC.

Hope and her family did their share of giving by donating her organs so that other may live their lives to the fullest. Please step up and do what you can to help us with this effort!

I would be grateful if you would come race or get raffle tickets and assist us in our efforts to help this family and remember a young lady that was one of our own.
