AdvoCare International to
Drive Weekend of Philanthropy at Phoenix International
Raceway, Nov. 10 & 11
November 5, 2012, (PLANO, Texas) -
AdvoCare International, LP
(AdvoCare), a leading health and wellness company, today announced
three philanthropic initiatives scheduled to occur throughout the
upcoming race weekend at Phoenix
International Raceway. AdvoCare is the title sponsor for the
Phoenix International Raceway's Nov. 11
NASCAR® Sprint™ Cup Series Race.
AdvoCare, who recently
announced it will strengthen its presence in the NASCAR arena
through an increased sponsorship of Richard Childress Racing driver
Austin Dillon in the 2013 NASCAR Nationwide Series, will also help
support Childress' charity of choice, the Childress Institute
for Pediatric Trauma, by including the Childress Institute as
part of AdvoCare's overall philanthropic effort.
"More than 12,000 kids die every
year from life-threatening injuries - more than all other causes
combined," said Richard Childress, president and CEO of Richard
Childress Racing and co-founder of the Childress Institute for
Pediatric Trauma. "It's the number one killer of children in
America, and it can happen anywhere at any time to any child. We
are grateful for the powerful teaming of Austin and AdvoCare to
help raise money and awareness for this national problem."
To benefit the Childress Institute,
AdvoCare will make an initial donation of $1,000, followed by an
additional $100 for every lap Austin Dillon leads in the Nationwide
Series race on Nov. 10. If Austin places first through fifth,
AdvoCare will make an additional donation based upon his placement.
"The Childress Institute for
Pediatric Trauma is an organization close to the heart of AdvoCare
and one that's essential to furthering pediatric trauma research
for severely injured children," said Richard Wright, AdvoCare
President and CEO. "We are proud to support the research and
awareness the Institute facilitates, and hope our contribution can
help their mission continue in the future."
Lastly, to celebrate Veteran's Day,
AdvoCare will give VIP packages to active duty and veteran service
members from the Air Force, Army and Operation Homefront
staff. Each VIP package includes tickets to the Nationwide Series
race on Saturday and Sprint Cup race on Sunday, as well as access
to AdvoCare's hospitality tent.
Tickets for the November 11 AdvoCare
500 Semi-Final NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race are available at www.phoenixraceway.com or
by calling 1-866-408-RACE (7223).
