When Mike Edwards and
his Young Life team developed “A Team on a Mission” and “Sending A Kid To Camp” program
for the 2005 season, none of them knew how far it would reach into the racing
community. Now entering its third year, the program has sent nearly 300 kids to
a Young Life camp, and for 2007 Edwards and his team hopes the program far
exceeds that number.
“We knew the racing
community was a giving bunch that would do almost anything to give those not as
fortunate as us a chance at something better,” Edwards said. “That is why we
started this program and now it is accomplishing just that, giving kids some
hope for the future.”
For 2007, Edwards will
be carrying a special logo on his car that shows his support of the progam. This
will hold true for all the fellow NHRA racers who join forces with Edwards in
“Sending A Kid To Camp” as each will carry the bright green decal.
