Welcome To Racing For Life. We are a group of offroad
enthusiasts who are dedicating 2006 to raising awareness and

Lance Armstrong Foundation. The year is highlighted by the
RFL team competing in the SCORE Baja 1000, traveling the
entire length of the Baja Peninsula in November.

RACING FOR LIFE Raffle
On October 4, 2005, Julia Lynn Filanc passed away from
scleroderma and lung cancer at the age of 50. Her brother, Jim,
is the team captain for the Racing For Life Offroad Team. Julie's
wishes included that donations be made to the Scleroderma
Foundation and the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Jim has
dedicated 2006 to raising awareness for these two worthy
charities in her name and encouraging everyone to give often.
"Our race team wants to dedicate this year to her and the
thousands of other people affected by these diseases. So with
this tour and at every race we take part in this season we want to
teach people about these diseases and raise money to fund
research and outreach programs."
