Help Needed for OVKA Hall of Famer
February 8, 2017 - OVKA recently learned of some very challenging circumstances regarding two members of our Karting Family. For those that have been around karting for many years, the name Ron Withrow may ring a bell.
Ron Withrow is a founding member of OVKA and served as our first president. Ron was also instrumental in the founding of WKA, and is a member of both the OVKA and WKA Hall of Fame.
While residents of Kentucky for many years, the Withrows also spend quite a bit of time in Sarasota, Florida. While in Kentucky recently, Ron fell and broke his ribs, spending a month in the hospital. During this time, adding insult to injury, heavy rains in Sarasota, Florida led to major roof issues, in which the complete interior of the home was destroyed by water damage.
Ron is retired, and on Social Security, which doesn’t allow for a quick repair of damaged items, as many in this position can well attest. The Withrow family is a huge part of the history of OVKA.
Those wishing to help the Withrow Family in this time of need are more than welcome to send any financial or emotional support to:
Ron and Carma Withrow
1919 Buccaneer Road
Sarasota, Florida 34231-3458
On behalf of the Ohio Valley Karting Association, our sincerest thanks for helping two very special members of the OVKA Family.
