Season of Caring
In 2011, the Racers' staff launched a new program through the Racers Charities that would complement their highly successful, "Together Against Breast Cancer" program. The "Together" initiative has raised over $150,000 for the AGMC Muffins for Mammogram Program which provides mammograms for underinsured men and women in the Akron community.
The Season of Caring program designates selected Racers home games and partners with an agency or non-profit that services the Akron community. In the past, the local Ronald McDonald House received much needed supplies to continue their mission and three area pregnancy agencies received diapers as a part of the "Huggies" Every Little Bottom Program.
This coming season, the Racers Charities will identify agencies in need of assistance and will, once again, provide a vehicle to obtain much needed supplies to assist our community neighbors and friends. Projects will address targeted areas that need public assistance. Whether it is increasing awareness, collecting food or assisting with scheduled events, the Racers Charities through their partnership with the Racers are ready to step up to the plate and help our neighbors!
