Racing for the Cause

When Lindsey first began racing, the only thing that she noticed, or even cared about, was the driving. At that point the media didn’t exist to her; it wasn’t something she thought much about. When Lindsey won her first national championship in 2005, newspapers began to call. For one year it was all about product “Lindsey”: the talented, female driver. She appreciated the attention but thought that it should be used for something more. At this time Lindsey began her own personal battle. Her mother, Debbie, a breast cancer survivor, had a second bad mammogram in two years and had decided to move forward with a complete second mastectomy. As she watched her mother’s courage in making decisions that would change her life, and hopefully extend it, Lindsey began to think about what she could do to make a difference in this fight against cancer. It didn’t take very long for her to commit to raising awareness for this disease. Lindsey began racing for early detection, early reaction, and along the way, hopefully be part of those that celebrate finding a cure. For Lindsey, Racing for the Cause has so many parallels with surviving in life. There is always the desire to win, even though many times we aren’t given much time to make quick decisions, sometimes we don’t have many choices, or the odds can be stacked against us. But always we have to face the unknown, the unexpected, yet if we don’t give up we stay in the race and we survive. If the race is really about time and that is all we have along with our faith, then we had better make it count.

“NOW I HAVE FOUND THAT THOSE THAT I SET OUT TO HELP HAVE MADE ME STRONGER. I AM NEVER ALONE WHEN I RACE. I TAKE SOME REALLY BRAVE SOLDIERS WITH ME.” –Lindsey Adams 2007

Overview of Survivors’ Circle

Survivors’ Circle is a celebration about women surviving breast cancer. It is an opportunity to tell the story of an individual in the city in which Lindsey is racing or, in the case of a sponsored survivor, have her name on Lindsey’s race car and have her story on Lindsey’s web site. A woman becomes a survivor starting the day after she has been diagnosed, and so her story begins. Women have been so giving in sharing their own personal walk in the hopes of helping others. There is much wisdom to be gained in reading their stories and sharing them with your friends and family.

Katy Trail 5k 05.19.2009
Last Thursday my friend, Leah, and I ran in the Katy Trail 5k. The Katy Trail is a privately maintained public park in uptown Dallas. The marathon was the annual event used to raise money for the Friends of the Katy Trail, the nonprofit organization that is responsible for designing, building, and maintaining the Katy Trail. Leah and I, along with about 5,000 others ran to support the Katy Trail and have fun in our community! I was thrilled to be participating in the event and loved getting to see how my community came together to support our gorgeous public park. The 5K, memberships of the Katy Trail, and the local support of our restaurants and businesses have helped raise more than $20 million, naming the Katy Trail one of the great American public parks. Thank you to those who sponsored the event and to everyone who ran/walked in the race. Looking forward to seeing you all next year! ... full entry
