Giving Back

As Atlanta Motor Speedway’s (www.atlantamotorspeedway.com) official fire protection provider, we recently had the opportunity to “give back” to AMS and its associated non-profit arm, Speedway Children’s Charities/Atlanta Chapter, during the recent Labor Day weekend.

While two of Integrated Fire Protection’s (www.integratedfireprotection.com) employees are represented on the board, we also wanted to support (for the second year) the Reed Sorenson Charity Golf Classic.  Even though our team didn’t come in first place, it was evident who will….dozens of local charitable organizations that serve the medical, emotional and social needs of children in Atlanta.

Just before and during the recent NASCAR race at AMS, Speedway Children’s Charities/Atlanta Chapter raised funds through a series of events, including the Golf Classic, NASCAR memorabilia auction (bid on sheet metal and other NASCAR-related items), Track Walk (walk with NASCAR drivers around the famous Atlanta Motor Speedway prior to the race on Sunday) and Hot Laps on the High Banks (drive your own vehicle around the 1.54-mile Atlanta Motor Speedway track).  In the end, the Atlanta Chapter raised more than $80,000 for locally based children’s charities.

As a “life safety” company, we couldn’t think of a better way to give back.  Please support Speedway Children’s Charities by donating. Visit www.speedwaycharities.org for more information.
