Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing announced on Friday the commencement of an exciting new partnership. Hot on the heels of extending their partnership with United Rentals, the team confirmed a new multi-year partnership with One Cure, an initiative by the Flint Animal Cancer Center.
The deal will see One Cure serve as primary sponsor to Graham Rahal’s No.15 Honda for the race in Phoenix and also in Portland.
Speaking about the new deal, Rahal commented by saying:
I am beyond excited to partner with One Cure and bring more focus and energy to discovering ways to help find a cure to save the lives of our loved ones, including our pets, who we consider family members. “One Cure is a tremendous addition to our program. As an animal lover and lifelong supporter of animal charities, this is going to be a powerful movement for our team as well as something our fans, sponsors and competitors can work together on to make an impact.
Team co-owner Bobby Rahal commented by saying:
I visited the One Cure facility at Colorado State University and was impressed by the work the men and women do to bring about a cure for pets and humans alike. “Anyone who has ever been exposed to the devastating effects of cancer in either a pet, loved one or even an acquaintance would be impressed with the program and be moved to support it. We are proud to help spread awareness of this ground breaking research.
Dr Christine Hardy, One Cure programme lead commented by saying:
We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with Graham and Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing to raise awareness for One Cure,” said Dr. Christine Hardy, One Cure Program Lead, Flint Animal Cancer Center. “Thanks to a generous One Cure supporter, we will be able to bring our message to millions of race fans this year and share the story of what is possible when we work together in the quest to improve the lives of all cancer patients – pets and people
