BEHIND THE SCENES
Meet some of those making it happen…
“This is a force multiplier!
Every $10 given to the crowdfunder is like giving $100
to the nonprofit because of the national exposure we get.”
– Mike Evock, Founder of Racing For Heroes
Retired Special Forces Chief Warrant Officer Three (CW3-180A)
Our American Dream Team
The American Dream …the belief that through sacrifice, risk-taking, and hard work, anyone can reach their own version of success regardless of where they were born or what class they were born into.
NASCAR driver Colin Garrett is out to build the first NASCAR team that’s fully dedicated to promoting the causes that are important to the military community and help them live the American Dream they’ve given so much to protect.
Colin and team owner Sam Hunt are the youngest owner/driver duo in NASCAR today. Colin has offered to replace large corporate sponsors with Racing For Heroes and other nonprofits like The Rosie Network if we can help raise funds to replace those sponsors’ money. Racing is expensive – it costs almost $20,000 just for tires for one race. But if a guy can raise $55,492 to make potato salad, surely WE can do THIS!
There are 3 ways you can help can make it happen:
- Anyone can contribute to the crowdfunding campaign.
- Colin will promote your vet/milspouse-owned business! When you contribute to the campaign, he’ll list your logo & website link on the team site and you can display his Veteran Business Advocate badge on your own site & social media.
- Please help spread the word by sharing with your friends!
During 2019 Colin promoted Racing For Heroes‘ free services to combat Veteran suicide pro bono on all of his NASCAR rides, a value of almost $750,000.
Let’s build on his family’s generosity and accept this challenge! We can help make sure that any member of the military community who needs help knows about the free services available to them.
Nobody said it would be easy. But that’s half the fun, isn’t it?
Your Venmo donation to @Garrett-RacingLLC will go to the crowdfunding campaign. Thanks for your support!
Racing For Heroes provides free mental & physical health, job placement, and motorsports as therapy services to help fight the epidemic of Veteran suicide. During 2019 Colin Garrett Racing donated almost $750,000 in free promotional services to RFH.
The Rosie Network is a national award-winning network of over 30,000 Veteran and Military family-owned businesses around the country. Rosie provides free entrepreneur training services and support to Veterans and milspouses.
To help boost economic recovery efforts for small business, the initiative opens wholesale open to buy (OTB) jewelry opportunities to fine jewelry stores operating within NASCAR markets & lets jewelers be part of a national NASCAR marketing campaign.
An exciting double-overtime finish in Race 2 of the doubleheader ends with Colin Garrett gaining 4 spots in the 2 overtime laps to finish P14.
