CONCORD, N.C. -- Chase Elliott’s “DESI9N TO DRIVE” initiative is back for the fourth year in a row.
Elliott and his Hendrick Motorsports teammates will wear specially designed Alpinestars shoes during this weekend’s race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
The Chase Elliott Foundation and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta have partnered again and selected four children who have been affected by pediatric diseases to design the shoes -- 8-year-old Brooke Winokur, 9-year-old Julia Hope Sears, 5-year-old Evelyn O’Dell and 14-year-old Justin Mingo.
In the past three years, more than $100,000 has been raised through the “DESI9N TO DRIVE” campaign and the Chase Elliott Foundation. On top off all proceeds going toward Children’s summer camp program for patients, Elliott will be matching the total amount raised and donate that to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta’s COVID-19 fund, which helps provide support, supplies and equipment for its patients and frontline workers.
Each set of shoes will be autographed by their respective drivers and an auction for the shoes will start Friday, June 5 and bidding can start on June 4. The charitable auction will run for nine days on the NASCAR Foundation online site.
