Get matching funds to sponsor a NASCAR driver who’s making a real difference.
Join Colin Garrett’s race to combat veteran suicide!
Last year we beat our crowdfunding goal for Daytona and were able to pay for stem cell treatments for a veteran who has MS. The results? Within several months his MRI showed no new lesions, some were completely gone, and others were smaller in size!
Who is Colin Garrett?
Colin is a 20-year-old NASCAR Xfinity Series driver who’s only been racing since he was about 15. He didn’t grow up racing karts like other drivers, but sheer talent and determination have taken him from the lowest level of racing to the next-highest in all of NASCAR in only 5 racing seasons!
How is he combating veteran suicide?
Since February 2019 Colin has been promoting pro bono the services of nonprofits Racing For Heroes (free mental & physical health, job training & placement, and motorsports therapy) and The Rosie Network (free entrepreneur training & mentoring). Both of these nonprofits serve veterans, active duty service members, and milspouses. He also provides an opportunity for veteran and milspouse-owned companies to become a NASCAR sponsor at a fraction of the usual cost.
Why is Colin dedicated to helping the military community?
Both of his brothers are Active Duty Army and his strategist is a milspouse whose husband retired from the Navy with 26 years of service. This is personal, not a gimmick.
Our vision is to run a car that’s dedicated to promoting causes important to veterans and military families, and businesses and nonprofits founded by them. We want the military family have its own NASCAR team, just like Fortune 100 companies do!
Why matching funds?
It’s always hard to get sponsor funding, but COVID has really made it difficult. And since Colin is doing it different than others, racing to promote nonprofits and military-owned businesses, it’s even harder.
A philanthropist who believes greatly in our mission has offered to match $50k for 1 race or $100k for 2. That means you could get the primary sponsorship for 1/2 price, or several businesses could come in together and split it.
Just the tires needed for one race cost almost $20,000. In addition to paying for the car, engines, tires, fuel and oil, testing, travel expenses, insurance, track fees, and all the other expenses involved, the pit crew and other necessary staff must also be paid.
