La Crosse, Wisconsin (WXOW) ----- A French Island family gets some extra support this holiday season. Henderson motorsports and La Crosse Speedway announcer dan Deicher said they wanted to surprise a family of race fans who could use a little help this Christmas.
The two worked with the school District of La Crosse to fulfill the children's Christmas wish list. When the Henderson racing team approached Deicher with the idea of giving back, Deicher thought that this would be the perfect Christmas surprise. "This isn't about myself. This isn't about classic rock. This is about Santa Clause and this time of year. Man I tell you what, when I see these 3 kids just smiling away like this, my heart is down to my shoes right now, and I'm holding back the tears."
This is the holiday, and I just wish we could do this for everybody. This is the true meaning of Christmas.
The children will also receive a new winter coat from Operation Stay Warm ...something sponsored by the La Crosse Firefighters local chapter.
