SHREWSBURY, Mass. — Following an extremely successful inaugural event last year, Rob Fuller Motorsports (RFM) is again hosting a Race Season Kick-Off Party to benefit 15-40 Connection. The event will take place at the Thompson Clubhouse at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park on March 7, 2015.
Last year, the event raised more than $10,000 for 15-40 Connection, a non-profit organization that has partnered with Rob Fuller Motorsports to raise awareness of health changes that could be early cancer symptoms and the obstacles teens and young adults have to overcome to benefit from the lifesaving advantage of early cancer detection.
“Rob and his organization is helping to share 15-40 Connection’s new cancer conversation so more will benefit from lifesaving advantage of early cancer detection,” said 15-40 Connection Founder, Jim Coghlin, Sr. “This new cancer conversation starts with the question, ‘Would you recognize a cancer symptom?’ Many would not, which is why spreading the message of how to detect cancer earlier is so important.”
There will be a silent auction with items from NASCAR teams and motorsports companies including: Stewart-Haas Racing, Hendrick Motorsports, Tommy Baldwin Racing, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Motorsports, Roush Yates Parts, Fluidyne Radiators, Bassett Wheels, Wheel Chill Products, CV Products, LFR Chassis, Draco Springs, New Hampshire International Speedway, Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park and many more.
“This is our third year we have partnered with 15-40 Connection,” said Rob Fuller. “It’s a great long-lasting relationship and I think that they’re happy with the recognition that the NASCAR community has given them on the importance of early cancer detection and how critical it is to know and recognize a cancer symptom. It’s a great feeling to be involved with such great people for such a great cause.”
The event will include live performances by New England rock band, Hypercane. The reception begins at 5:30pm, silent auction starts at 7:00pm and dinner is from 8:00pm – 11:30pm.
Tickets for the event are available for a minimum donation of $50 and are limited to 300. For tickets, please contact [email protected]
