VETMotorsports Nets $13,090 During Veterans Day Fundraiser

(11/12/13) Upper Arlington, OH

VETMotorsports raised $13,090 with their "11 by 11” Veterans Day Fundraiser, which ran from November 1st through November 11th. VETMotorsports is a recognized 501c3 tax-exempt outreach program that places combat veterans into motorsports events that are team-oriented, purposeful and goal driven with actual hands-on time. The non-clinical outreach ensures that the participants are empowered and engaged; making them central components to team operations and including as many caregivers, peers and family members as possible.

“For those that donated, VETMotorsports greatly thanks you for supporting our program and mission. The money raised exceed our expectations,” states Peter Cline, Executive Director and Founder of VETMotorsports. “These funds will allow our outreach program to do three key things; enter 2014 debt free; continue to place wounded veterans into our motorcycle crew outreach; and expand our auto racing program.

“Our next fundraiser begins shortly,” continued Cline. “Long term, sustainable outreach is our objective. We’ve added additional outlets to ease the donation process. We encourage corporate sponsors and individuals seeking a 4th Quarter tax-exempt donation to contact us. VETMotorsports greatly appreciates the support of the racing community. We wouldn’t exist without it.”
