Eating contest mixed with racing!
Lehigh Valley Grand Prix takes pride in helping organizations raise money through our fundraising events. We are always looking for creative ways to have fun and take it to the next level. April is Child Sexual Abuse Awareness Month and LVGP is teaming up with the RAACE Foundation to help spread the Awareness.
Child Sexual Abuse is a topic that is not easily discussed. It is a dark subject that is embarrassing and uncomfortable for victims, therefore the epidemic is not as widely discussed as it should be. Here are some statistics that make me sick to my stomach!! 1 in 3 girls are sexually abused before the age of 18. 95% of sexual abuse occurs within the family of trust. 1 in 7 boys are sexually abused before the age of 18. There are 39 million Child Sexual Abuse survivors in the US!!
Have I got your attention? Now for the part where we can help! On April 22nd starting at 5:30pm LVGP is having a wing eating contest combined with racing. Teams of 3 will participate in a relay race. Each participant will eat 2 wings and race 10 laps on the track then tag a partner. Fastest team wins. Top 10 teams will compete in a final race. This is going to be a blast!!
