“Andrew, Jeff and I had a great time at the IMEX show teaching people about off-road racing and bringing awareness to the American Cancer Society. The Driven Experience opportunity at Gateway Canyons was certainly part of the buzz of the show,” said Chuck Dempsey, Driven Experiences Race Director. “With no rest, we are already on the road to Dallas for the Cattle Baron’s Ball where we are ecstatic to be part of this exclusive event and hope everyone will join our team and cheer us on during the Baja 1000 starting November 14th!”

“We added some additional incentives to help boost our commitment to this program. In every race there is a podium of three winners where luck played a solid role in getting them there. So we gathered three awesome prizes to give away in a random email drawing after the race when the official Baja 1000 winners are announced,” explained Dempsey. “Anyone who donates via the Driven to Fight Cancer program with an email address will be entered to win one of three prizes: The grand prize will be a two-day stay at Gateway Canyons Resort spending one day at the Driven Experiences school, and a second day enjoying the beautiful Colorado scenery after choosing between one of the fast and classy cars in the Driven Rentals program. The second email randomly picked will win a one-day Driven Experiences school opportunity, and the third email randomly picked will receive a Go-Pro Hero4 camera. All you have to do to enter is donate through our program online, or at an event, and opt into winning with your email address.”

The American Cancer Society is a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers saving lives and fighting for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. As the largest voluntary health organization, the Society’s efforts have contributed to a 20 percent decline in cancer death rates in the U.S. since 1991, and a 50 percent drop in smoking rates. Thanks in part to our progress nearly 14 million Americans who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will celebrate more birthdays this year. As we celebrate more than 100 years of service, we’re determined to finish the fight against cancer. We’re finding cures as the nation’s largest private, not-for-profit investor in cancer research, ensuring people facing cancer have the help they need and continuing the fight for access to quality health care, lifesaving screenings, clean air, and more.
