Not Your Average
For each pole Chase wins, the Chase Elliott Foundation makes a $1,000 donation to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to support Not Your Average Summer Camps. Every summer, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta partners with Camp Twin Lakes to host camps for kids with unique medical and physical needs. The camps give attendees— kids with heart defects, missing limbs, transplanted organs, seizure disorders, craniofacial conditions, autism—a chance to feel “normal,” even if just for a week or a weekend. For more information on camps, visit CHOA.org/camps.
Desi9n to Drive
From Feb. 21 to March 2, the Chase Elliott Foundation is auctioned five special racing shoes designed by patients at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (Children’s) to benefit the Children’s summer camp program. Patients at Children’s submitted color sketches of their favorite family activities on a blank racing shoe template and five drawings were selected to be replicated on Alpinestars racing shoes and worn by Chase and his Hendrick Motorsports teammates (Jimmie Johnson, Alex Bowman and William Byron) at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Feb. 23-25, 2018.
Several corporate partners committed to matching the highest winning bid of the five shoes in the online auction, including NAPA AUTO PARTS, Mountain Dew, Hooters, Kelley Blue Book, SunEnergy1, Valvoline, TriMaxx Graphics and Hendrick Motorsports.
As a result of the auction and corporate matching, over $30,000 was raised to benefit Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta summer camp program.
