A local family is searching for a racing go cart that was stolen in the area of Shores Road on Tuesday. Evidently, the child that was excited to drive the race cart had waited two years to do so. Now, it looks as if he won't have a chance to race.
What stands out the most about the small racing go-cart is that it had "JDRF" on the front hood. JDRF stands for the "Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation." You see, the child who was going to drive the cart has type one diabetes. The foundation is dedicated to funding research for type one diabetes, which there is currently no cure for.
A friend of the young man by the name of James Turgeon told WGNS that if you find the cart, call him today and he will work with law enforcement on recovering it. His number is 615-295-3315. Keep in mind that a $1,200 reward is being offered on the return of the go-cart.
