EARLY YEARS: 2nd annual HeRow Car Expo raises money for pediatric cancer research
Mandy Price, who lost her daughter Rowan to leukemia, says the event will also raise money for a local family
ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - A Roanoke mom who lost her four-year-old daughter to a rare form of leukemia is working to raise money for other families going through a similar challenge.
Mandy Price’s daughter, Rowan, died in 2019.
Saturday, the second annual HeRow Car Expo put on by HopeDriven will raise funds for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, as well as a local family whose daughter, Kayce Bradfield, is battling neuroblastoma.
“Knowing that this car community was formed around Rowan and carries on her memory and helps out individuals that are going through experiences that our family has gone through just helps me to know that Rowan’s spirit is still alive, and that her memory is still alive and that we are giving her death a bigger purpose,” says Price.
The event is happening Saturday, April 9 from 5 to 9 p.m. near the Vinton Farmer’s Market.
You can shave your head or donate hair for the cause.
Price says she’ll be getting her head shaven, in honor of Rowan. Here’s a link, if you’d like to donate.
She says anyone can enter their car, motorcycle, ATV, truck, or Jeep in the HeRow Expo car show.
There is a $10 minimum donation per vehicle.
