FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Uftring Ambassador Initiative exists for the purpose of humanizing service through humanitarian acts of kindness, helping hands, open hearts, compassionate minds and philanthropic cooperative community partnerships.
With that in mind, The Uftring Auto Group is proud to announce the 2nd Annual Uftring Auto Group “Get in Gear” Race and Tailgate Event, at 2:00 p.m. on September 28, 2014 behind Uftring Chevrolet in Washington. Proceeds benefit the Central Illinois Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
The event includes a 1 mile walk/run, 5K and 10K race and a post race tailgate party and awards presentation to top finishers. Chef’s Catering will be cooking a whole hog and serving up pulled pork sandwiches for all participants. In addition, the band Float Trip will be playing live music in our huge event tent.
Last year’s inaugural Get in Gear Race and Tailgate Event raised over $14,000 for the Center, which provides vital services and support to individuals facing the uncertainties and challenges related to uncorrectable vision loss. The Center’s goal is to educate its members and provide them with independent living skills to optimize their opportunities to lead independent lives.
Many local sponsors have already committed their support to help support the Central Illinois Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired. We look forward to a tremendous turnout on September 28th.
