Race car driver raising cancer awareness visits Children's Hospital

Josh Williams, who is currently a championship contender in the 2015 ARCA Racing Series driver point standings, brought his Team Anya Cale Hospital Tour to Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital this week.

On Monday, Williams and his race car came to the Children's Hospital, and pediatric patients were encouraged to come out and decorate their handprints on a paper plate. The designs will then be digitally scanned and incorporated into the car's design later this year prior to championships. Williams's team is sponsored by Musselman's, the applesauce manufacturer based in Biglerville, Adams County.

Williams and his team hosted five-year-old Anya Cale Harvey in this year's season-opener at Daytona International Speedway. Last November, she was diagnosed with leukemia and has undergone treatment since that time. Williams hopes to bring awareness to Anya Cale and other children battling cancer.
