Mike Edwards and his program “A Team on a Mission,” continues to
offer the perfect gift to kids around the country. With the support of fellow
racers, business executives, the racing industry, and team owners, joined
forces to raise more than $90,000 in helping send a kid to a Young Life camp.
To date, in only three short years, the “A Team on a Mission” has raised more than $200,000 in
support of kids.
“This is a gift that will have a lasting impact on
many young kids around the country,” said Edwards. “By working with the racing
family, we are giving hope to many kids that need it the most and letting them
know that people care about their future.”
The "A Team on a Mission" program is set up as a simple
donation format. Edwards and a few of his fellow Pro Stock racers donate the
amount needed to send a kid to a Young Life camp for every round of competition
that he wins during the NHRA POWERade schedule. Fans, racers, and businesses,
can either match Edwards’ contribution to the program, or develop their own
style of donation, which can include a single donation, a set amount per event,
or whatever way they would like.
