Project Description

“Everyone calls me uncle so I’ve got a million nephews and nieces.”

Surrounded by a “million” nieces and nephews, Uncle Charlie and Aunt Donna, co-owners of Uncle Charlie’s Slot Car Racing, find joy through their niche racing community, despite Charlie’s recent health issues.

A few years ago, Uncle Charlie was diagnosed with end-stage renal failure, and relies on frequent dialysis to live. In early May 2019, Charlie suffered two mild heart attacks.

While Charlie’s health issues will continue to persist, both he and Donna want to keep on racing with their slot car family as long as they can.
