Even with all the advancements of medical technology in today’s world, cancer is still a disease that’s all too common – it has an ability to devastate families and communities, but it gives us hope that there are so many people in Edmonton and surrounding areas who never give up hope in combating the dangers that it presents. That’s why our Sherwood Ford team is so proud to be partnering with Chase the Cure YEG throughout August in support of the Alberta Cancer Foundation – check out how below!
Our Partnership with Chase the Cure YEG’s Race of Honour on August 6
Simply put, Chase the Cure YEG is a volunteer run charity organization comprised of race car drivers, family, friends and crew that have made it a main goal to raise awareness for cancer research and prevention. On August 6 at Edmonton International Raceway from 3-11 pm, they’ll be hosting their 5th Annual Event, a race that will give spectators a great time for an even better cause.
Besides the car racing, the event will also include an Edmonton Mustang Social Club Show N’ Shine, a silent auction, halftime live entertainment featuring Delany Tuff, and much more when you attend at the Edmonton International Raceway at 244047A, Township Rd 464, Wetaskiwin. You’re more than welcome to donate to the event via this link – the current fundraising goal is $10,000, which we’re sure won’t be hard to reach. Receive 10% off your Sherwood Ford Service bill when you make a donation.
All proceeds and donations to the Race of Honour will be used to benefit the Alberta Cancer Foundation in its pursuit of research and prevention of the disease – we’re happy to announce that as part of our partnership with the organization, our very own #NATIONTRUCK will be the official pace car for the races!
How can I donate to Chase the Cure YEG if I can’t attend Race of Honour?
If you can’t make it out to the races on August 6th, don’t worry! Throughout August, for every test drive that’s taken at Sherwood Ford, we’ll donate $10 to Chase The Cure YEG to support the foundation and its causes.
