CHARLOTTE NC (October 6, 2013) – It’s October and Garrett Marchant Racing is doing its part to spread the word on Breast Cancer awareness. Throughout October, Garrett Marchant and his team will implement pink wherever possible including Marchant’s No. 77 Lone Star Car Transportation Chevy, the team website, and social media networks.
The main focus of going pink will be on raising funds for Garrett Marchant’s Racing 2 Cure Program. Marchant is an ambassador for the non-profit that aims at providing funds for cancer research as well as helping the “human side of cancer.” Racing 2 Cure helps families pay for tutor and lawn services, transportation to appointments while living with cancer, and helps with some medical bills. Since joining the program in mid-2012 Garrett Marchant and his fans have been able to raise nearly $500, but Marchant wants to push that to over $1,000 this year.
“I would love for all of my fans to take a moment and go to my donation site (www.racing2cure.org/drivers/GarrettMarchant) and at least one dollar. If everyone that likes my Facebook page and follows me on Twitter donates $1 that would be over $10,000 raised for Racing 2 Cure!” up-and-coming NASCAR driver, Garrett Marchant said. “The pink car is our way of honoring those fighting, have won the fight, and those that we have lost in the fight against breast cancer.”
Fans can also purchase a Racing 2 Cure hat and for every hat purchased, when putting Garrett Marchant as the referral, $2 will be added to Marchant’s Racing 2 Cure account. The hats are distributed by Last Lap Marketing and can be purchased at their website www.LastLapMarketing.com/Racing-2-Cure-Store.html. In addition, all hats are embroidery locally in North Carolina and are helping keep more Americans employed.
