« Return to News
The fundraiser will include a raffle for a race bike and harness plus a silent auction featuring a variety of items from equipment to harness racing memorabilia and sporting event tickets. Also, "Hanners Strong” T-shirts will be available for purchase. The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. in an area between the Scioto Downs clubhouse and grandstand.
Scioto Downs is hosting Super Night on Saturday, with a full slate of Ohio Sire Stakes championships plus the Jim Ewart Memorial Pace and the Chip Noble Memorial Trot.
Proceeds from the fundraiser will be used to help offset medical and travel expenses for Hanners and his family. In addition to Saturday's fundraiser, a GoFundMe account has been set up for donations. The account can be found here.
"Brad never really had any symptoms of being sick other than back pain, and what driver doesn't have back pain,” said Brandi Sykes, who is helping to coordinate the event. "We'd just like everybody to pray for him and help him get through this.” (Harness Racing Communications)
