NTT IndyCar Series driver Graham Rahal and his wife, former NRHA driver Courtney Force have announced details of their drivers tournament for the Graham and Courtney Rahal Foundation.
The event which raises money for their chosen charities, One Cure, TurnsForTroops and Soldier Strong will take place at the country club of Indianapolis on Thursday 21 May.
Speaking about the event which last year raised a record $310,000 Graham Rahal said:
Courtney and I are honored to host the Drivers Tournament again this year with the help of our gracious sponsors, including United Rentals. “Everyone who gets involved with this is directly impacting our two very worthy causes, SoldierStrong and CSU’s One Cure.
Chris Hummel, Chief Marketing Officer with United Rentals who are a proud partner to the event as well as a long serving partner to Graham in the NTT IndyCar Series commented saying:
United Rentals has been proud to partner with the Graham & Courtney Rahal Foundation on their Drivers Tournament, benefitting Turns for Troops and One Cure. “This annual event has become a highlight of our ‘Month of May’ service activities leading up to the Indianapolis 500 and has generated significant support for important veteran programs and cancer research. We are excited to return as the title sponsor of the tournament in 2020 and hope to see the event – and its impact – continue to grow.”
Dr Christine Hardy, lead doctor of CSU’s One Cure initiative commented saying:
One Cure is making strides against cancer in both pets and people thanks to supporters like the Graham and Courtney Rahal Foundation. “The support from the last two years of the GCRF Drivers Tournament allowed us to move a novel treatment that showed great results in pet dogs with advanced bone cancer to children with the same disease at Children’s Hospital Colorado. Support from this year’s tournament will fund more critical research so we can continue to race for One Cure for pets and people.”
