Drive 4UR School ‘a huge success’ for CHS football program
Capital Ford hosted another “Drive 4UR School” fundraiser Aug. 10 to benefit the CHS football program. By test-driving a new Ford vehicle, Ford Motor Company donates $20 per driver, up to a maximum donation of $6,000. According to CHS teacher, athletic director and head football coach Blair Roman, “It was a coordinated effort by football and cheer to push to get 300 drivers that morning, and I believe we achieved those results.” Roman went on to say, “Ford donates to athletics programs based on the number of drivers. The event was a huge success; Ford is awesome to work with, and they do so much in the community and for the programs at CHS, and we should publicly thank them for all their support over the years and into the future.”
