Absolute EMS Sponsors Race for Research Driver Benefiting St. Jude


Reading time ( words)

Absolute EMS, Inc., an award-winning EMS provider of turnkey and consignment manufacturing services, is pleased to announce that the company is sponsoring a 16-year-old driver in the Race for Research Event benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Every once in a while, you meet someone who just has a little something extra.  Drive, passion, charisma, or sometimes they are just wise old souls. Ms. Mickelina Monico is a young woman who is not only smashing the proverbial glass ceiling but will not allow one to exist in her world young and exciting world.

When Monico was turning 15 she wanted to take up race car driving.  Not just drive, but be the best in her sport. When her sport outstripped her family’s ability financially, it was not a problem.  She created her own sponsorship package to take to local businesses with an enticing story as to why they should sponsor her, and yes, she was successful. But she was young then. She is 16 now and has her eyes set on larger challenges and goals.

The young driver’s father had cancer when he was younger. When he recovered, he wanted to give back to St Jude. He single-handedly organized one of the most profitable fundraisers for St Jude. Now, his daughter is coordinating a fundraiser for St. Jude and using her racing as a conduit.  Monico would like to organize one of the most profitable fundraisers for St Jude and we can join. 

“When you see a young person with this much passion, it has always been my reaction to run, not walk, to help them!” said Jayne Carthy, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Mickelina is 16! I don’t know who she will be when she is 30 but I can guarantee she will be a leader of sorts making this world a better place for all of us – all while she elegantly carves a path into racecar driving for young women. Yes please, we very much wish to be a part of this.”

Absolute EMS is proud to support young women determined to break the glass ceiling. The company has contributed to the young, ambitious driver’s fundraiser and looks forward to leading her to success. The fundraiser will take place Friday, May 12, 2023 at the Hilton Garden Inn Fairfield, and the race will be held Saturday, May 13, 2023 at the Dixon Speedway in California.

As new technological innovations—such as 5G, IoT, AI, automotive and high-performance computing—come to market, they’re pushing chip manufacturing and integration capabilities. They demand more performance which leads to added complexity in an already extremely complicated process. All this requires a fundamental shift in the way that semiconductors are manufactured and integrated.
