Old Bonhomme Student Races for Autism Fundraiser

First grader Sean Dixon poses in his race car.

Old Bonhomme first grader Sean Dixon raced in Quincy, Illinois, for the 2nd Annual Race for Autism, a benefit to raise money for autism last Sunday, Sept. 11, 2016. Sean took first place, but that was not the best part—he gave his winning trophy to an autistic child who came out to watch the race!

“It just melted my heart,” Sean’s mom said. “Because no one saw that coming, which was amazing. Proud “Mom Moment”, of course!”

Old Bonhomme School, which is a Missouri School of Character, celebrates Sean’s wonderful example of his school’s motto, “Choose to be nice.” Way to go, Sean!

The race was held at TNT Kartways in Taylor, MO.
