Big Daddy’s Race for Time is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting lung
cancer research and education. Through donations, we are able to serve
Central Kentucky in their research efforts of early detection, treatments, and the
reoccurrence of lung cancer.
Our organization was founded in 2008 after the loss of Paul Feistritzer, a local race
car legend, to lung cancer. Our board consists of nine individuals who are
dedicated to helping our cause; as any cancer is a race for time to find a cure.
We may provide funds to other organizations that the board feels would
further our purpose of research, treatment, or awareness and education
of lung cancer.
A small percentage (15% or less) of our funds will go to individuals who need
financial assistance in paying for lung cancer related expenses. Our plan is to
have individuals apply for funds from us to help them pay for travel, tests,
actual treatments or any other related expenses they may need assistance with
relating to lung cancer. They would submit to us a formal request, stating the
specific amount they are requesting and what the money would be used for.
Our board of directors, or special committee would approve the request.
