Howl Goes to the Races

Howl and his family are invited to the race track with other young transplant recipients for Organ Donation Awareness Day, and Howl couldn’t be more excited to see a race in real-life and meet the driver who invited him! Joey Gase supports organ donation which is why he invited young transplant recipients to the race for a special day at the track. Since Howl is a heart transplant recipient, he is one of the lucky ones invited to meet Joey, sit in his car, and cheer him on during the race. Follow along as Howl meets Joey and has the most thrilling and action-packed day at the races!
