Reviews for Sam Schmidt Foundation dba Sam Schmidt Paralysis Foundation

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been to Sam's "Day at the Races" in Newton, Iowa the last 3 years and it's an amazing day that he provides for us! I'm sure it's not easy putting together an outing at a race track for quite a few wheelchair users and veterans but every year tops the last! It gives me an opportunity I wouldn't otherwise have to spend a day with my dad enjoying one of his interests (car races) and also get to know others in the same situation as myself. Sam understands what people need and does a great job in giving opportunites to keep on enjoying life!!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Newton, Iowa at the "Day at the Races" Iowa Speedway. Sam gives us the opportunity to meet, eat with, and learn about race cars, the drivers, and Sam himself. Sam's story is motivational in itself and then he gives and gives to others on top of that.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Nothing! Sam and his staff are amazing people that do a great job!!!!
