Indy Lights driver Ryan Norman stopped by Akron Children’s Hospital to visit several hospitalized and outpatient children Thursday, regaling them with tales from the track and encouraging them to follow their own life dreams. Ryan, who drives for Andretti Autosport, didn’t have too far to travel – he lives in nearby Aurora — and this was his first Racing For Kids visit. The ABC Supply, Inc. show car was also on hand giving the kids an opportunity to see, sit in, and have their photos taken with a real INDYCAR race car.
Former INDYCAR racer Robbie Buhl joined Ryan on the visit and presented the hospital with a special gift from Racing For Kids a $1,500 check to be used to buy stuffed animals to present to every child upon admission to the hospital. The Children’s Toy Fund project is administered by the hospital volunteer department.
