Kids, start your sketching! Children living with type 1 diabetes (T1D), ages 5 to 18, are encouraged to let their imaginations race for the checkered flag in the 2015 Race Car Design Contest for JDRF, hosted by Motorcraft/Quick Lane Tire and Auto Centers.
From now until March 12, children can submit their JDRF-inspired race car designs. Contest organizers will select designs for online voting at fordracecar.jdrf.org. Beginning March 16, friends and family can visit the contest site to vote by making a monetary donation in support of their favorite design.
The winner will be flown to watch his or her design appear on the Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford Fusion, driven by Ryan Blaney, at the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on July 26, 2015, in Indianapolis, Indiana.
JDRF celebrates eight years of partnering with Ford Motor Company to present the Race Car Design Contest. The contest has raised more than $400,000 for JDRF and T1D research to date. Your creativity inspires us as we work together to create a world without T1D.
* Entries received after March 12, 2015 will be accepted but may result in lower fundraising.
