Staffers and kids from our Phoenix program had a great time celebrating renovations to the Crews’n Healthmobile at Phoenix International Raceway over the weekend.
The NASCAR Foundation has generously donated $50,000 to fund a new generator and other much-needed repairs. The fixes will help the mobile clinic fulfill its mission of caring for homeless and at-risk children.
The Crews’n Healthmobile was parked on the midway for two hours before the Sprint Cup on Sunday. More than a hundred racing fans toured the mobile clinic. Many also enjoyed taking “selfies” in front of the mobile clinic with cardboard cutouts of famous NASCAR drivers like Danica Patrick .
Staffers and children from the mobile program, joined by representatives from the NASCAR Foundation, enjoyed a behind-the-scenes tour of the track. They visited the starting line, met a couple of NASCAR drivers, learned how pit crews change tires, and peered into racecar engines.
We’re grateful to the NASCAR Foundation and Phoenix International Raceway for a great day – and a better future for Phoenix kids!
