Together, Building Tomorrow and ECR have launched “Ride with Rinus,” where any contributor who donates $75 can have their name added to VeeKay’s car.
Building Tomorrow and ECR launched “Ride With Rinus,” where supporters will have their name included on VeeKay’s car for the GMR Grand Prix at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Donations will benefit Building Tomorrow’s Roots to Rise program, a foundational learning initiative teaching basic literacy and numeracy skills based on students’ learning level, not age.
A donation of just $75 will give contributors the opportunity to put their name on VeeKay’s No. 21 Building Tomorrow Chevrolet and allow five children to enroll in an upcoming Roots to Rise camp. With the goal of adding 1,500 names to the racecar, Building Tomorrow would be able to support 7,500 children in Uganda and help them get their education back on track after two years without formal schooling. To “Ride With Rinus,” donations can be made online at BT.TEAM.
George Srour, Co-Founder and Chief Dreamer of Building Tomorrow said:
“We’re delighted to partner with Ed Carpenter Racing to raise funds and awareness for the learning crisis in Uganda. “With this partnership, we’re giving anyone who wants to support literacy and numeracy – basic skills so many Ugandan kids haven’t had the chance to master – the opportunity to do so, and in return they get the chance to ‘Ride With Rinus’ on May 14.”
