Steven E. Perkel, DSW, FACHE Sr. Vice-President, Member Programs and
Strategic Initiatives for the United Spinal Association attended the
Lyn St James Women in the Winner Circle Foundation event last week to
learn more about how women are making an impact in the world of racing.
Steven is also a member of the UnitedSpinal Motorsports program.
The mission of United Spinal Association’s Motorsports program is to encourage people with disabilities, including individuals who use adaptive automotive equipment, to participate in competitive motorsports. It is also to cultivate partnerships within the motorsports industry in support of the program, thus raising awareness about spinal cord injuries and disorders.
We were joined by David Kyle of www.voxant.com, Gigi Ho of Digital Performance, Judy Schumacher Tilton and Kathleen Ryan of Schumacher Chevrolet, Bria n Parr and Eric Sturdy of Northwood University along with member of the board of the Women's Automotive Association were in attendance as guests of AskPatty.com during the event.
Here is a photo gallery from the event.

Hope you will get your race gear on and join us!
