Mint 400 Military Challenge
March 3 @ 8:00 am - March 8 @ 5:00 pm
The Great American Off-Road Race™ announced today the launch of The Mint 400 Military Challenge, with the goal of raising awareness and financial support for military veterans and highlight the military’s ongoing involvement in off-road culture. Four of the five branches of the United States military will each have their own off-road race vehicle with active duty military and veterans racing for their specific charity that focuses on the needs of its active duty members and veterans alike. The Marine Raider Foundation is honored to be represented and have a team racing to help raise awareness for the cause!
The idea is to create a public facing “race-a-thon” where companies and the general public can donate to the branch of their choice for every one mile completed, creating a competition that people can actively participate in even if they are not at the race. All active duty and veterans are encouraged to get behind their branch team and participate by sharing info or donating monetarily.
The Mint 400 Military Challenge is supported by Zero One Off-Road, who will be fielding all the vehicles, and Oak Grove Technologies, who has already committed $20,000 in financial support. Companies looking to get involved can sponsor a car, actually come out and race with the team of their choice or simply donate.
