Tello, now a proud U.S. citizen, came to Delaware from Lima, Peru, his hometown, in 2002 as a lay missionary. Through his service with the Franciscan Volunteer Ministry, he dedicated volunteer hours to teaching ESL at St. Paul’s Church, visiting patients at St. Francis Hospital and prisoners at Baylor’s Women Correctional Facility, coaching soccer and organizing programs for migrant workers and youth. He is a life coach and motivational speaker, currently pursuing his PHD in counseling which will allow him to continue his life of service to the Latino community of Delaware. Tello will be honored during the “Apache Warrior 400 presented by Lucas Oil” Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoff Race at Dover International Speedway on Oct. 1, where he will receive a donation of $2,500 to help further his efforts in supporting the local community.

In line with his reputation for giving, Tello has decided to direct his funds to Autism Delaware, whose Mission is to help people and families affected by autism. They believe that all people with autism should have opportunities to learn, grow and live full lives as included and valued members of their communities.

“We’re proud to partner with NASCAR to celebrate and recognize Hispanic Heritage Month,” said Mike Tatoian, president and CEO of Dover International Speedway. “Ronaldo Tello’s life story, including the good work he is accomplishing here in Delaware, serves as an inspiration and example to many people. Through this honor, Ronaldo’s mission can be shared on an even bigger platform, during one of the most important weekends of the NASCAR season.”

Throughout Hispanic Heritage Month, three additional Hispanic leaders will be honored across the country at Chicagoland Speedway, New Hampshire Motor Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway. The award recognizes the commitment of Hispanic leaders to their communities and promotes their efforts by honoring them in their local race market. Each honoree will also receive a $2,500 donation for a non-profit organization of their choice.
