Seekonk Speedway would like to announce the Michael Marfeo Jr Memorial Race to be held on July 13th featuring the Late Model Division. The race will be a 50 lap late model Race and will be the 2nd leg of the Triple Crown. The Speedway would like to thank Bob and Jariah Roderick for sponsoring the event honoring Mikey Jr.
Here are some thoughts on Mikey Jr from the mixed Nuts website link…
Mikey was a two year old boy who loved cars, daddy’s tools, rode his tractor around the house, when he heard Arthur on the T.V. he would sit and giggle, always wanted to be with his big sister Peanut, and when we could not find our keys we could count on Mikey playing with them.
Mikey was diagnosed with brain cancer December 1997. We met so many Wonderful people who helped in so many ways. Family support was always there, Papa, Susan, Gerri, Carol and Tammy would take turns cooking a meal, ice cream night with Aunt Peg, friends stopped by to help in anyway. People we never knew took the time to show they cared and lend a helping hand, and Nana always brings coffee and chit chatter she is…., and a faithful 7:45 am call from Grandma. Poppy would be patient when Daddy would come in late and leave early. Love never seemed to go away.
Mikey lost his battle with cancer April 1998. Proceeds from Mickey’s Fund go toward the Tomorrow Fund, Roger Williams Medical Center, Meeting Street School, Ronald McDonald House, and many more organizations to help with the race against cancer.
We thank everyone for supporting the Michael Marfeo Jr. Fund. It takes people like you to make a miracle happen for someone else.
