THE DRIVE FOR 75, The Race To End Homelessness
Wheaton, IL (January 28, 2013) Continental Motors Group of Naperville, Chicago Indoor Racing and DuPage PADS have teamed up for the third annual six hour karting enduro for charity! Eighteen teams will compete in raising money for DuPage PADS before race day with a goal of reaching $75,000 for DuPage PADS to assist families and individuals who are homeless. This year’s race will take place on Sunday, February 24th from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Chicago Indoor Racing in Addison.
Participants in this year’s event can look forward to a fast-paced, unique racing experience and an opportunity to help others. For more than 27 years, DuPage PADS has provided hope for people who are homeless by offering an array of services which seek to stop the cycle of homelessness. The Drive For 75 will support these key programs of DuPage PADS such as education and employment services. “The teams are competitive on the course but even more so in their fundraising for DuPage PADS. At the end of race day, everyone will walk away a little tired but more importantly, proud of what their efforts have accomplished for this organization and those they serve”, says Joel Weinberger.
Space is limited and with only 18 teams participating, each and every team is asked to give their all in helping achieve the $75,000 goal. Racing advantages will be given to top fundraising teams and participants!
