Come join some of some of the fastest from the "Power City" in a fun filled, high energy cruise along the Texas Gulf Coast to Historic Galveston Island.

This will be one of the best cruises you will take all year long. If you have been on a HPD South Coast Fun Run to Galveston in the past. You know it's BALLS DEEP!

ATTENTION EVERYONE! - This fun run is going to be a charity run to raise money for a Houston military family that needs our help. Everyone of us has been affected by the cancer in one from or another. Thank you for that never ending support. We must do more folks! Has Owner & Lead Developer of Houston Performance Driving & The Performance Driving Network, we have the possible ability to pay in full the last treatments needed for this family. We need your generosity to make this fact!

Thank you for taking the time to read this post. We are asking for monetary donations on medical expenses for 21yr old Claudia Mariscal. She has stage 2 –1-A Ovarian Cancer. Claudia was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer when she was 6 months pregnant (January 10th, 2013) after she had an ovarian cyst rupture inside her. Doctors removed her tube and ovary while pregnant. After the birth of her baby girl they have started aggressive chemo treatment. She has had 3 rounds to date and still needs one more round. Her doctor had her port where she receives her chemo removed due to no insurance. Her latest blood results came back abnormal. She has had some complications such as some hearing loss due to the chemo treatment and her doctors expect some speech impairment due to this. Her insurance has expired June 30th and now we are asking for help any way we can. We know that times are tough but if you can find it in your budget to help out we would appreciate anything you can pay forward.

I. Charity Outline:

- The Houston Performance Driving South Coast Fun Run has always been a open FREE event for anyone who enjoys fast cars. It's going to stay FREE! However, we are asking that anyone attending this cruise to please contribute $10 minimum and $20 maximum. We will accept larger cash only donations if you can help. However, $10-$20 dollars per car will be our target. Again this is NOT required to attend the cruise. Still, we are looking for a strong movement of donations from the kindness of your hearts. People who donate the requested amount will receive a yellow wrist band representing the fight against cancer and the support of our military families. We are also hoping to have event T-Shirts on hand for those who donate.

- ALL money raised will be going straight into the hands of The Anthony Family on Monday. Mariscal Anthony has served his country in war time with honor. Now it's time we honor his service by helping his family through a tough time. Mariscal wife Claudia is who we are raising donations for. Mariscal was a Specialist in the US Army and deployed to Iraq in 2009. There he served a full year has a diesel tank tech keeping our fighting vehicles in top notch condition on the front lines. Once home and out of the army he married Claudia. Thank you for you service!

- Can we go further!? Yes we can! Crown Staffing INC, Houston Performance Driving, and Performance Driving Network will match the amount raised on the cruise. If we can get $2000, then our sponsors will add $2000 more dollars making it $4000 total. This is the main idea behind getting has many donations as we can on Sunday.
