NASCAR and its fans have always been a patriotic bunch. Now, the group is choosing to honor U.S. military families through the NASCAR Foundation with NASCAR Unites. The initiative will help bring funds and awareness to military families, who are tasked with making big sacrifices to help keep our freedom intact and our country strong.
How can we get involved? I have volunteered my time as a driver (no takers from any NASCAR team, can you believe that?). Aside from enjoying the red, white and blue motifs that the four-wheeled beauties will be sporting (“splitter to spoiler,” as NASCAR puts it), we can all play a part in this initiative. We can all sport NASCAR Unites wristbands and donate to the foundation. And, of course, in the spirit of the initiative, reach out to those military families around us in need.
Want to honor a veteran? Help someone our veterans hold most dear: their families.
