WANTED! Do You Know This Man? Bob Schmelzer 1928-2011


He has given over 50 years to the Racing community in the Midwest and now it’s your turn to give back. This year you can “Walk for Bob”!

Join us Saturday, October 29th 2011 for the 33rd Annual Walk/Run American Cancer Society Event at Road America in Elkhart Lake,WI. Registration from 8:00 to 9:30 a.m.; Walk starts at 10:00 a.m.

Once again, Mid-American co-owner, Julie Strasburg is putting together a team to walk/run around the famed 4 mile Road Course. For the last 5 yrs it has been Julie’s pleasure to serve as team captain for the MID-AMERICAN MARAUDERS. Mid-American Co-Owner Julie states, “This year we will be dedicating our efforts and flying a flag at Road America in memory of Bob Schmelzer”. Her husband and Mid-American partner Doug states, “I met Bob in 1971 when, in my first year with my own late model, he bought a set of tires for me if I would start racing at his track, Columbus 151 Speedway. He and his family have been our friends for years.”

“I have signed up to participate again in the walking group. Not quite ready for the 4 mile run!!” Julie says. “I invite you to join me in support of this great event.”

Julie continues, “If you would like to help us reach our goal, you can donate directly through the link below or send a check made payable to ‘American Cancer Society’ to my address below by Oct 27th. Feel free to contact me with any questions at 920-723-9855. Then join us for the walk/run.”

Cancer has or will touch each one of us in our lifetime. You can help beat it by donating to the American Cancer Society and/or participating in the walk in Bob’s memory by contacting Julie. 100% of what Julie collects goes directly to the American Cancer Society. Think about it and Thank you.

Thank you for your consideration and support of this great cause, the American Cancer Society.
