From Pit Stop to Patients

package.jpgMore than a dozen celebrities from the pro/celebrity race at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach made a pit stop at Miller Children’s Hospital on Thursday, April 17. Pro football Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson, singer/actor Drew Lachey (who is best known as the second-season winner of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars), former NBA player John Salley and host of The Best Damn Sports Show Period, actor Wilmer Valderrama from That ‘70s Show, and WNBA professional basketball player and ESPN women’s basketball analyst Nancy Lieberman were also among the competitors from the race who went room to room visiting patients.
Since 1992, the Memorial Medical Center Foundation has received generous gifts from Toyota Motor Sales USA. Toyota donates money for each pro/celebrity driver to the Racing for Kids Foundation, a nonprofit fund-raising program that supports Miller Children’s and other children’s hospitals.
