Nascar’s Jimmie Johnson Helps Out a Local Foundation (Video)

The Gwendolyn Strong Foundation in Santa Barbara is the newest addition to the Jimmie Johnson Foundation's Samsung Helmet of Hope. The Nascar star is choosing twelve children's charities and will wear their logos on his helmet during the Sprint Cup Series event at Auto Club Speedway in October. Johnson is also donating 10, 000 dollars to each organization.
 
The Gwendolyn Strong Foundation seeks to raise awareness about and fund research for Spinal Muscular Atrophy, the leading genetic killer of young children. Bill and Victoria Strong's daughter, Gwendolyn has SMA. She is almost three years old and already she has already outlived most of her peers with SMA.
