Twelve years ago, Life Rafter Bobby Kinsey began his own battle against GIST. Since then, he has helped countless people with GIST across the world. Most of you know Bobby as an LRG member who posts advice and words of encouragement in our email community. Now, Bobby has decided that he wants to do more to help fight this cancer.

A retired horse trainer and former record-holding lead driver in harness racing, Bobby continues to groom horses at the Dover Downs in Delaware. He is combining his passion for harness racing with his determination to find a cure for GIST. On March 25, 2012, Bobby will host a fundraiser at the Dover Downs, Harness a Cure, to support the LRG’s research efforts.

Planning is underway; please email Christine for more information: cschaumburg
