KidsPeace Crosses the Finish Line with Jimmie Johnson

 Permanent link

On October 11, Jimmie Johnson won the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Pepsi 500 race in Fontana, CA. Jimmie has been having a great season, and perhaps his good works have something to do with it. During the October 12 race, Jimmie wore his Helmet of Hope, which bore logos from 12 charities to which the Jimmie Johnson Foundation had donated grants. KidsPeace had a prominent place on that helmet, and the associated grant was presented to the KidsPeace Foster Care and Community Program office in Raleigh, NC. In addition to the $1,048 grant, the 12 beneficiaries of the foundation will also share the proceeds from the sale of tee shirts bearing all of the logos. These tee shirts are available on Jimmie's website for $10. KidsPeace greatly appreciates Jimmie's generosity and congratulates him on his win at the Banking 500 on October 17 in Charlotte.
