Adam Petty's Heartbeat by Sandra Lee Hartsell
This book is a book about the Victory Junction Gang Camp in Asheboro, NC. It was written in memory of Adam Petty. Adam Petty was a 4th generation race car driver. He had a passion for children and went to visit a camp for sick children up North.
Adam came back from the camp and wanted to open a sick children's camp in NC. This camp is Awesome. Children are placed with a counselor 24 hours a day, while they are at the camp for a week in the Summertime. Paul Newman came to the camp opening.
This book allows parents and children to see the different activities their children will be involved in during the week of camp. Doctors and Nurses are at the camp are available 24 hours a day at the camp. This camp is a place where parents can feel comfortable in knowing that their child is being taken care of, while they are letting their hearts race doing exciting new things. For every book that is sold $1.00 goes toward the camp.
