Pattie was married to a family of racers, but she wasn’t interested in the spot. However, she supported her husband in the activities, but her career was being an activist. Her key role was being the CEO of Victory Junction Gang Camp. The idea of the camp was to help charity activities, especially helping children ailing from terminal and chronic diseases.
Moreover, the charity organization draws its motivation from the memory of Pattie’s first son. Adam was the son of Pattie and Kyle, and he died during a training session. His car developed throttle issues and crashed. Although people tried rushing him to the hospital, the damage to his skull led to his death.
The Pattie family came up with the camp idea, and soon, people joined them to support each other. The camp was built near a family land in Randleman, and as its activities continued, it received numerous donations globally to finance its charity activities.
However, an incident where the collected money got lost led people to blame Pattie, forcing her to resign from her CEO position. She was kicked out of the camp when she was ill in 2011 as other executives took advantage of her situation to kick her out.
