[NSW] Overdrive Motorsport - Fibromyalgia Cruise Sun, 20 November 2005 22:11 Go to next message
Overdrive Motorsport will be holding a Car Cruise from Homebush to Bateau Bay Recreational Sports Fields on the 11th December, 2005. This Cruise is to increase the awareness and recognition for a disease known as Fibromalygia. I am Adrian Marcelino Owner of Overdrive Motorsport and my Mother has the disease mentioned above, it is a disease which at this stage is incurable and only limited research is being carried out. But with the generosity of yourself and others we will raise funds needed for them to get a grant to do extensive research here in Australia and evidently try to find a cure for the disease. Fibromalygia itself is a horrible disease, they call it the Silent Disease because when you look at the sufferer they look normal but inside have incredible pain. It lends itself around the body causing quite a substantial amount of pain. For example somedays you may wake up with your left knee aching, the next your whole right side might be aching. I have been living with the knowledge that my mum's days are organized by the disease, if it is a bad day as we put it, she will be bed ridden for the day, and if it is a good day then she will be able to do some of the day's tasks. It is discomforting to know that your mum can't come out to watch you play soccer or come to the beach due to the disease which is totally out of your control. Now is my chance to make a difference! The disease itself has been known to be more painful than Cancer itself, which shows the severity of the disease. If you would like a more detailed description of the disease please feel free to view it at Overdrive Motorsports homepage, . (This information will be up in the coming days)

We have organized with Mr. Hopkin who is the Executive Director of the Arthritis New South Wales Centre and he is thrilled at our idea and more than helpful in everything. We are aiming at gathering $10,000 in total. This will be done through a number of methods such as Sponsorships, a Raffle on the day, sales of stickers and direct donations. We have also received an official fundraising number which is CFN 12845, making it all legal.

There are a number of ways which you can help, there are stickers and lanyards which will be sold on the day, a raffle will also be run throughout the day with numerous prizes up for grabs.

A Large number of trophies will be up for grabs as well in various categories as well as a Car Club trophy going to the best represented car club...

Basically we are aiming at having a great day and raise money for something that really hits home with myself... I appreciate all the support that we get more than you would believe...

The First Prize in the Raffle will be a $3000 Re-Spray kindly Donated from Queen St Smash Repairs.

This is the Second prize in the raffle.

All the other prizes are listed at

Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Help us make a difference...

See you all there..........
