NEW LOOK, SAME GOAL FOR RAC IN 2011
Cancer Program Launches New Fundraising Campaign & Fresh New
nearly 15 years the Racing Against Cancer TM (RAC) Program has successfully
motivated members of the local and regional racing community to help raise
in excess of $660,000 for the fight against cancer. In 2011, the RAC Program
will continue to depend on the support of local racers but will also look
for participation in a different way. Following in the footsteps of the
American Cancer Society, a major beneficiary of the charitable organization,
the Racing Against Cancer has adopted a new “Track Walk” Program as the core
of their fundraising efforts.
“Our mission continues to be to raise money for cancer research, patient
services, youth tobacco educational programs, and awareness,” said Scott
Gregory, Director of Operations for the Racing Against Cancer Program. “RAC
team members are still encouraged to continue with the unique fundraising
efforts that they have initiated over the years. The “Track Walk” Program is
a way for us to expand our reach, increase fundraising revenues and
ultimately fortify our impact on the fight against cancer.”
During the 2011 season, the Racing Against Cancer Team will host “Track
Walks” at race tracks throughout the U.S. Participants will form teams of
eight to 15 members who will share in the responsibility of completing laps
around the race facility over a 2-to 24-hour period. Team members will help
raise money by obtaining donations and securing sponsorship dollars for each
lap completed by the team.
Teams will don a designated number and/or color to keep in the motorsports
theme. Throughout the course of the event, teams will be treated to a number
of fun activities.
The first RAC Track Walk will take place in May of 2011 at East Lincoln
Speedway in Stanley, NC, with the support of its owner Ray Evernham and his
wife Erin Crocker.
With the new approach comes an all-new website for the Racing Against Cancer
Program. The sleek new web page offers easy navigation; allowing quick and
easy access to a number of pages providing up-to-date news on the Track Walk
Program and all other RAC events. The site,
RacingAgainstCancer.com, also provides and in-depth view of the
benefactors of the RAC Program.
Current and future supporters of Racing Against Cancer and the all-new Track
Walk Program are encouraged to visit

Programs that aid in the fight against cancer.
