On May 7, 2019, Karting for Kids took place at the GoPro Motorplex in Mooresville, NC. The event was held to raise funds for Ace & TJ’s Grin Kids. The charity was designed to enhance the lives of terminally ill and chronically disabled children, between the ages of 5 through 12, that live within Ace & TJ’s listening area. Established in 2000, Ace & TJ’s Grin Kids is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit providing a magical, all-expense paid, five-day experience at Walt Disney World. Over 400 children and their families have received this experience since the charity started. Grin Kids is funded exclusively by listener donations, fundraising events and corporate donations. Every dollar helps in making this magical vacation possible for children who have only dreamed of a vacation to the Happiest Place on Earth!
Ace and TJ’s Grin Kids 3rd Annual Karting for Kids event is an Enduro karting challenge. The Enduro karting challenge consists of teams with 2-7 drivers, with a maximum of 7 required driver changes throughout the race. The race will be 90 minutes long, and driver changes will take place at predetermined intervals. The team that completes the most laps win! This event allows members of the community to enjoy an exciting evening of Enduro racing with their friends, while helping raise funds for Ace and TJ’s Grin Kids annual trip to Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL.
Jet Fitness participated in this event last year, and with the help of our members and local business owners, we raised over $12,000. We participated in the event again this year, and we have raised our goal to $15,000! Jet Fitness will have three teams racing in the event this year. One team this year will consist of amazing drivers from the racing community, which will include NASCAR, NHRA, and Karting stars, another team will consist of drivers that have been randomly drawn in a raffle, and the third team will consist of drivers from one of our generous sponsors. Jet Fitness is reaching out to the community and local businesses to sponsor Jet Fitness’s Team. Jet Fitness is determined to win the race, not only on the track, but with the money we raise for these amazing kids. 100% of money raised by Jet Fitness will go directly to Ace & TJ’s Grin Kids. WE have designed an amazing T-Shirt that will be available for sale, and a huge banner that will be hung at the event and in Jet Fitness for the next year. Check out our Sponsor Levels to see how you would like to help support us. Jet Fitness also wants everyone to mark their calendars for May 7, 2019 and come out to the Go Pro Motorplex to cheer all three of Jet’s teams.
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. Jet Fitness looks forward to partnering with Ace & TJ and the community, to support such an amazing cause. Remember no donation is ever to small, everything counts!
