The KLM Motorsports NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour team and its driver Ron Yuhas Jr. are looking for help.
They want to do what ideas fans have to help with an in initiative they’re launching this month.
KLM is introducing it’s “Race It Forward 2013” program for this season. The program will run through the season and according to a release: “the team will engage in 64 acts of kindness, symbolic of their car number.”
“We are incredibly fortunate to be able to race at this level,” said team owner Mike Murphy. “And even more blessed to do it as a cohesive team that is more like an extended family. It is just the right thing to do to pay it forward. ”
According to a release on the program: “Some of the most significant “Race it Forward” acts scheduled for 2013 will benefit the team’s favorite organization, Special Olympics Connecticut.”
The team will participate in the Penguin Plunge at Ocean Beach Beach in New London Feb. 17 to raise funds for the Special Olympics Connecticut. The team will also serve as volunteers at the Special Olympics Connecticut in New Haven.
“The Murphy’s give us every advantage,” said Yuhas, of Groton. “This amazing family would much rather that we ‘repay’ their kindness and generosity by helping others.”
According to the team: “A host of other events to benefit the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, local community projects, and individual fans will take place during the year.”
The team is asking fans to reach out to them through Twitter or Facebook to offer ideas for their 64 Acts Of Kindness program. On Twitter the team can be reached through @RYuhas64 and fans can use the hashtag #64actsofkidness. Ideas can also be left at the team’s Facebook page or can be emailed to the team (email@example.com). For more information on the program visit RonYuhas.com.
