This is your chance to earn a one-of-a-kind piece of racing memorabilia, signed by some of the greatest legends of sports car racing. Every year, Michael Goodwin, a general contractor from Port St. Lucie, and a die-hard race fan, brings a specially made race sign to the Rolex 24 at Daytona for all the drivers in the field to sign. As he does every year, Michael is donating the 2019 Rolex 24 At Daytona sign to raise funding for a good cause. This year, he asked me (Ryan Dalziel) if I would accept this year’s sign to use to raise money for two charities very near and dear to my heart.
My wife and I are very close to the Rett Syndrome Research Trust and the Selfless Love Foundation. Many of you know my 10 year old niece Dionne has Rett Syndrome, and I’ve spent much of my own time and money to raise awareness for this terrible disease afflicting so many young girls. Selfless Love Foundation was set up by my former Tequila Patron ESM sponsors Ed & Ashley Brown a few years ago, and Jessica and I have been supporting it ever since.
Please buy whatever tickets you can to support two great causes, the donations will be split 50/50 and 100% of the proceeds will be going to these charities.
Thank you Ryan Dalziel www.ryandalziel.com More about Michael Goodwin: After a bet seven years ago, Michael and a group of his friends and family competed in the Daytona 5K Fun Walk before the start of the Rolex 24 At Daytona wearing tutus.
They called themselves Team Tutu for the walk around Daytona International Speedway. To date, he and his team have raised more than $20,000 for different charities.
Nine years ago, he brought a street sign to the Rolex 24 at Daytona and carried it around with him to get drivers to autograph it. He has done it every year since, now designing and manufacturing his own signs.
Michael's goal was to get the autographs of every driver, or celebrity involved in the race. This year Michael got over 200 signatures including Hurley Haywood, Derek Bell, Scott Pruett, Paul Tracy, Stefan Johansson, Didier Theys, Bill Riley, Tommy Kendall, Justin Bell, Leigh Diffey to name a few. (See bottom of page for the full driver list).

Rett Syndrome is a serious lifelong neurological disorder that is caused by random mutations in a gene called MECP2. Diagnosed almost exclusively in girls, symptoms typically appear in toddlerhood. Many children with Rett are unable to speak, walk or use their hands. Breathing problems, feeding tubes, seizures, anxiety, gastrointestinal and orthopedic issues are common. Despite the debilitating nature of the disorder our girls are so much more than a laundry list of symptoms. Their beauty and their strength inspire and motivate us.
Rett Syndrome stands apart from other neurological disorders due to the dramatic reversibility of symptoms in animal models. Our confidence that Rett Syndrome is curable guides our every decision.
Although very rare, boys can also have Rett Syndrome. There are several specific genetic scenarios that can happen. Please visit our Genetics Primerto learn more. Almost all of the research that RSRT supports is as relevant to boys with Rett Syndrome as it is to girls. RSRT’s goal of treatments and a cure applies to girls and boys with the disorder.
About Rett Syndrome Research Trust: RSRT was launched in 2008 to drive research toward a cure for Rett Syndrome and related MECP2 disorders. Our mission is urgent: 15,000 girls and women in the United States and 350,000 globally live with the agonizing symptoms of Rett Syndrome.
RSRT funds more research than any other Rett organization in the U.S. and abroad. Since 2008, RSRT has awarded $58 million to research.An average of ninety-six percent of every dollar donated to RSRT goes directly to our research program. Keeping our internal team lean and fiercely motivated allows us to focus funds and energy on what matters most: healing our children as quickly as possible.
As one of the few neurological disorders to show dramatic symptom reversal in mice, Rett Syndrome has attracted unprecedented interest from university and pharmaceutical scientists. Through innovative research and constant engagement with scientists, clinicians, industry, investors and affected families, RSRT is at the epicenter of this activity.
We do more than just write checks: we are changing the landscape of Rett research. We set the research agenda by proactively identifying and monitoring promising therapeutic areas, seeking out scientific and industry partnerships and working closely with them to advance programs through the drug development pipeline. We are risk takers who do not shy away from bold and innovative projects unlikely to be funded by the NIH or other more conventional funding agencies.
We believe Rett Syndrome can be cured, but time matters. A rigorous, coordinated, and agile research agenda will get us there as quickly as possible. Our ultimate goal is to become obsolete – by finding a cure. More: https://reverserett.org
About Selfless Love Foundation: Did you know over 100,000 children in the US are sitting in foster care right now waiting to be adopted?
Selfless Love Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to transforming the lives of current and former foster youth through awareness and strategic partnerships.
In September 2016, Selfless Love Foundation partnered with Children's Harbor Incorporated, a nonprofit located in Broward County, FL, to develop a transitional living program for emancipated foster youth. Out of this partnership, Brown's Harbor, a community that provides independent living support and essential life skills workshops to former foster youth to support them transitioning into adulthood, was born.
As of February 2018, Selfless Love Foundation and Adoption-Share are pleased to bring Family-Match, a groundbreaking technology, to Florida families free of charge. Family-Match, a data driven technology with a compatibility assessment designed by the former lead researchers with eHarmony, seeks to decrease the time to adoption placement and match children to families where they will flourish. Participating families with approved home studies will get an unprecedented opportunity to be identified by child welfare workers across Florida, who began using Family-Match to connect children with compatible families in Summer of 2018.
This is just the beginning of the many projects Selfless Love Foundation will take on to empower and transform the lives of foster youth.
Join the #BESELFLESS movement and help Selfless Love Foundation enrich and transform the lives of current and former foster youth. Learn More: https://selflesslovefoundation.org Complete list of signatures on sign:
