EP 68: Renee Brinkerhoff, the Valkyrie Racer—“A Brave, Courageous Woman with a Compassionate Heart!”

Renee is a rally race driver, but not just any rally race driver--with no prior racing experience, no family background in racing, and barely any knowledge of cars, Renee started rally racing at age 56. Why? Because she wanted to! It was on her bucket list and she just knew she had to do it. Renee has been rally racing for 8 years now. She’s competed in almost all continents of the world including North America, Australia, South America, Asia & Europe, and Africa. Antarctica, the only continent left, is just a matter of time! As if racing around the world wasn’t enough, Renee founded her own racing company, Valkyrie Racing, which has led to a non-profit organization focused on ending child sex trafficking in at-risk women and children around the world. Valkyrie Gives contributes 100% of their gifts to carefully selected projects that positively impact the lives of women and children at risk of sexual trafficking. If you’ve ever said, “I’m too old for….”, this is the episode for you!
