$13,500 to National MS Society
Laps to Conquer M.S., Inc. (LCMS), donated $13,500 to the National MS Society, which was collected during our drive to end multiple sclerosis this year bringing the total raised since 1989 to $100,000.
While the primary goal is awareness, LCMS has raised over $100,000 for the National MS Society since 1989. “The $100,000 is a bonus because raising money is not our primary goal,” claims David Teal, “and it all helps MS research.”
The 2002 LCMS drive to end multiple sclerosis started with the May 3 – 11 One Lap of America where the LCMS Dominion Title Services Sunoco Avis VW Jetta finished 13th in the Mid Priced Sedan Class after competing at 9 tracks and traveling 5,140 miles through 21 states.
The LCMS drive to end MS continued through October with the LCMS Dominion Title Services Sunoco Avis VW Jetta making nine Pace/Safety Car appearances at three racetracks in two states. It was displayed at three Car Shows and was in one parade.
LCMS was the named charity for two races this year. The first was a Tri Region, race at Pocono International Raceway, Pa., in June. The second was a Washington DC Re-gion race at Summit Point, W.V., on Labor Day weekend.
Volkswagen of America and Avis Volkswagen supplied the LCMS Dominion Title Sunoco Avis VW Jetta GLX. It was displayed at Avis VW commemorating its dual anniversaries of; the 25th year for owner Henry Schwartz, Jr., and, its 50th year since Fay’s father, Stanley Avis, opened it in 1953.
While great advances have been made about understanding and treating MS, it still exists, so we plan to continue the LCMS drive to the checkered flag.
We hope your year was good and we send our best wishes to everyone. We’ll see you somewhere down the road.
