Raceway to host its first Track Laps for Charity
This year, Darlington Raceway is partnering with organizations making a difference across the Palmetto State for multiple Track Laps for Charity events. The track will host the first Track Laps for Charity on Saturday, March 20, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Track Laps for Charity offers fans the opportunity to drive their personal vehicles around the track Too Tough to Tame for a donation of $20. All proceeds for Track Laps for Charity events will benefit Darlington Shares, a donor advised fund of The NASCAR Foundation, and a selected regional charitable organization. The first Track Laps for Charity for 2021 will benefit Darlington Shares and Donate Life South Carolina. “The opportunity for race fans to take friends and family for laps in their personal vehicles around the track Too Tough to Tame is always a memorable experience,” said Darlington Raceway President Kerry Tharp. “As we expand our Track Laps program to give back to the Palmetto State, fans can now have a direct impact in supporting local charities. We look forward to welcoming the community for multiple Track Laps for Charity this year.” “Donate Life South Carolina is forever grateful to the good people at Darlington Raceway! We hope our educational efforts during this year’s Track Laps For Charity will spotlight the need for more donors in South Carolina. Donate Life South Carolina will be there as well to inform the public about the importance of the South Carolina Organ and Tissue Donor Registry,” states Donate Life South Carolina CEO Tracy Moore. Donate Life South Carolina, a state-authorized nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, is solely responsible for managing the S.C. Organ, Eye and Tissue Donor Registry. They are dedicated to saving the lives of thousands of South Carolinians awaiting life-saving transplants. To learn more about Donate Life South Carolina, visit donatelifesc.org.
