Drive 4 UR School
Beloit & Truck Plaza will be sponsoring the Drive 4 UR School event from 9am to 1pm on April 1st to benefit both St. John’s Catholic and Beloit High Schools. The event will be held at the business location on 3133 US Hwy 24 in Beloit. This event has the potential to raise $6,000 through 300 test drives.
Drive 4 UR School began in 2007 as a way for Ford to give back to communities across the country. The idea was for individuals to test-drive a Ford vehicle from a local dealership and earn $20 per test drive for their local high schools. The success for the school program inspired the launch of Drive 4 UR Community, allowing Ford Dealers to partner with nonprofit organizations as well. Thousands of events and $35 million in donations later, participants are still test-driving for a cause that they, and Ford, are equally passionate about.
