This helmet will be worn by Alex during the 2013 Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg race weekend. Alex approached WISH for OUR HEROES two weeks ago when Alex met SPC Charlie Lemon, a WISH for OUR HEROES volunteer and double-amputee (wounded in Iraq in 2009). Alex was so inspired by Charlie’s story and WISH for OUR HEROES’ mission that he agreed to design a special WISH for OUR HEROES helmet and wear the helmet while racing during the 2013 Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, then donate the helmet to WISH for OUR HEROES to raise money for military members facing hardship. There is no other Alex Tagliani WISH for OUR HEROES helmet in existence, and we are encouraging every race fan to bid! Our goal is to raise enough money from the proceeds of this helmet to assist many military families facing hardship (food, shelter, transportation, child needs). We cannot thank Alex enough for this unbelievable gesture!!!!
