In 2008, Rock Crawler and 4Wheel Drive Hardware employee, Kelly Young lost her mother, Marie, to a brief battle with colon and liver cancer. Since then, Kelly has looked for ways to raise awareness and funds to benefit cancer research. Kelly and her team raised money throughout the year at various events such as Relay For Life, Bark For Life, the BRR For a Cure polar bear plunge and Jeep shows and events. All money raised was donated to the American Cancer Society. They do this with the hopes that they can play a part in helping find a cure--something that has affected everyone. From January 2012 to December 2012 they raised $13,522.80. Over the last 4 years, they raised a total of $58,814.80 for the American Cancer Society! This is a great way to remember Marie and others lost to this dreaded disease, as well as honoring the survivors!
Kelly would like to thank all of her fans, supporters, coworkers, friends and family, sponsors and of course 4Wheel Drive Hardware and TransAmerican Auto Parts for their continued support. Without them, this program would not continue to be the success that it has been.
