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 17
Simply put, Chase the Cure YEG is an 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 17 at Edmonton International Raceway from 4-9 pm, they’ll be hosting their Race of Honour Event, a race that will give spectators a great time for an even better cause.
Besides the race, Race of Honour will also include a silent auction, halftime entertainment and much more when you attend. You’re more than welcome to donate to the event via this link – the current fundraising goal is $15,000, which we’re sure won’t be hard to reach.
All proceeds and donations to 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 OilersNation #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 17th, don’t worry! Throughout August, for every test drive that’s taken at Sherwood Ford, we’ll donate $10 to the foundation and its causes. You can also donate directly to NATIONTRUCK for Chase the Cure YEG, over the phone or in person.
