The Idaho Potato Commission donated $50,000 to Rods Racing. The donation allowed Rods to double the size of its team to more than 100 athletes who have each pledged to raise $1,000 to help find homes in the United States for orphaned children with Down syndrome.
The increase in membership was accomplished through Rods Racing’s sponsorship of the Ironman World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
We surpassed both our membership and donation goals thanks to the generous support of the IPC,” said Rods Racing founder Brady Murray. “In just two years, we’ve been able to help find homes for 10 orphans. With a larger team and the continued support from the IPC, our goal is to find homes for 10 orphans in 2014.”
