Send Kenny to World Pinewood Derby

I have started this for my 8-year-old son Kenny.  Kenny is in the 3rd grade and has been in boy scouts for 3 years now.  He has been involved with the Pinewood Derby since his first year.  Throughout that time, he has won his division in his troop and the district level all three years.  Two of the years his has won the overall championship in his division and in the district level.   Through these three he has learned so much about what makes a pinewood derby car work and how to get the maximum speed out of his car.  He has been lucky enough to have been mentored by his Uncle (Rob).  Every year he has made sure that Kenny is more involved with the creation of the car and the understand of why they are doing what they are doing.  Last year we were lucky to go to the National Pinewood derby in Greensboro. 
This year we think that Kenny has a car that can go further in competition.  Every year the Boy Scouts of America has a World Championship.  This is where all the District winners in the country can come and compete.  This year it will be held on June 30th.  Unfortunately, this is held in New York City.  Which is the reason for this page.  I believe that Kenny has a car that can complete in this Championship.  This would be a great experience and one that I truly believe that he deserves. 

We are looking for sponsors to help make this journey happen.  This is very expensive.  I wish that I had to means to make this dream come true for him, but I do not.  I am not a big fan of Go Fund me pages, but this is not about me.  I would do anything to make this happen for him and if it’s putting aside my feelings, then that’s what I will do.  Thank you for taking the time to read this and your consideration.
