K&N sponsored racer Tommy Phillips spent his Monday giving back to the community by spending time with sick children at Children's Hospital in Plano, Texas. Children's Hospital provides patient care for kids from birth to age 18 ranging from simple eye exams to specialized treatment in areas such as heart disease, hematology-oncology and cystic fibrosis.

In addition, Children's Hospital is a major pediatric kidney, liver, intestine, heart and bone marrow transplant center.

Events like this can make all the difference in a child's life. Many of these children are fighting for their very survival and a small glimpse of hope from an inspiring racer like Tommy Phillips can give a child a break from an otherwise difficult daily routine. This event had over 100 kids, parents, and medical staff in attendance where Tommy delivered a speech. During his speech he talked about the dreams we have and about being dedicated to our passions. Tommy also held a Q&A session where he answered questions the kids had about how fast the cars are and how he started in racing.

During the visit Tommy made sure to visit all 3 floors of children so that children who could not leave their rooms weren't left out.

Throughout the event K&N hats were handed out and over 150 hero cards were signed in just 4 hours.

This heartwarming experience was really rewarding for the children and Tommy who said "I must say that it was a reminder to me that losing in the first round of a race or blowing up an engine really isn't that big a deal in the grand scheme of life."

K&N enjoys and looks forward to sponsoring racers like Tommy who know how important it is to give back to the community. More information on Children's Hospital and ways you can volunteer can be found on their official website at http://www.childrens.com/volunteer.
