Goodguys AutoCross for Kids kicks off fundraising efforts at the Goodguys 8th Spring Nationals, March 10-12 at WestWorld of Scottsdale
Goodguys and the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancerwill kick off the AutoCross for kids Program at the Goodguys 8th Spring Nationals, March 10-12. This program — in its 3rd year — offers event attendees the chance to ride with a PRO driver on the AutoCross course for a suggested donation of $20 to the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer. The AutoCross for kids program will run on Friday and Sunday during the event AutoCross hours, 8 am to 5 pm on Friday and 8 am to 1 pm on Sunday. The PRO Drivers will compete at the top of each hour on in the AutoCross schedule.
Goodguys Rod & Custom Association and the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer have again partnered in 2017 to raise funds and awareness for the Foundation’s mission to erase the effects of pediatric cancer for patients, survivors and their families. The partnership will provide the Foundation with opportunities to educate both children and adults about healthy lifestyles that prevent cancer, as well as provide crucial therapies, in a variety of cities throughout the United States. The interactive part of this program is a fun offer to event attendees to ride with a Pro Driver for a great cause.
Goodguys Rod & Custom Association will work in conjunction with the Foundation at several Goodguys shows in 2017. Association members and show attendees will have opportunities to contribute to the efforts through donations, the purchase of limited edition merchandise and participation in the “AutoCross for Kids”, as well as volunteering for some of the program’s initiatives.
“Goodguys events are family events,” said Marc Meadors, President, Goodguys Rod & Custom Association. “The hot rod/car community is a huge family and having the Austin Hatcher Foundation in the fold again this year is a win-win for everyone.” We are excited to partner with the Foundation again in 2017. They are celebrating their 10th anniversary and we are hoping to do great things for them this year through the AutoCross for Kids promotion in raising awareness and funds in the fight against pediatric cancer.”
