“As part of the Burlington community, all of us at Miller Motor Sales are excited to help Burlington High School raise funds that will be used for their athletic department. We hope to see a strong turnout from the community at our Drive One 4 UR School event. It will be a fun day of test drives that will benefit our young people,” said Chris Miller, President at Miller Motor Sales. The event, which will be held from 9:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M., will feature the Ford Explorer, 2012 Focus, Fiesta, Edge, F-150, Mustang and other available models.
Since the start of Ford’s Drive One 4 UR School program in 2007, more than 275,000 test-drives at more than 1,500 events have generated over $5 million in donations for high schools nationwide. Locally, Miller Motor Sales participated in Ford’s Drive One 4 UR School program in 2010 and raised over $4,400.
In addition to raising much-needed revenue for high school extracurricular activities, the program gives participants the chance to experience Ford Motor Company’s exciting new vehicles and leading safety technologies, including:
• SYNC®, the fully integrated, in-vehicle voice-activated communications and entertainment system, updated with a “Do Not Disturb” button to block incoming calls and text messages and improved text message read-back capabilities so drivers can keep their eyes on the road and hands on the wheel;
• Blind Spot Information System (BLIS™) with cross traffic alert, which uses radar to check the blind spot and helps notify the driver of approaching traffic when backing out of a parking spot; and,
• Active Park Assist, a technology that helps drivers position the vehicle for parallel parking and then steer it into a parking spot without touching the steering wheel.
The 2012 Ford Focus, the company’s most significant global nameplate, delivers smart features, spirited performance and 40 mpg fuel economy packaged in modern, European-inspired design finishes. The all-new Focus Titanium model promises to appeal to drivers shifting from larger, premium vehicles looking for sporty handling; while the high-performance Focus ST with turbocharged, direct-injected EcoBoost™ power will get enthusiasts' hearts racing.
To participate, please visit Burlington High School between 9:00 A.M. and 2:00 P.M. on May 7.
Participants must be 18 or older and have a valid driver’s license. There is a limit of one test-drive per household.
