The Preston Automotive Group will organize a walk for the March of Dimes to take place on the grounds of the Preston Autoplex on May 3rd, 2015. We have done this for many years and this year David Wilson Jr. will be the chairman for the event. The March of Dimes March for Babies official mission reads, “We help moms have full-term pregnancies and research the problems that threaten the health of babies.” It’s a fantastic cause and we are excited to be participating again!
We have already started to raise funds in order to reach our overall, Preston Automotive Group goal of $25,000. Our accounting office, located in between the Ford and Hyundai Buildings, has had baked good sales, hot dog lunch sales, and 50-50 raffles in order to raise money for this tremendous cause. We also have several other smaller teams across the Autoplex that have formed to help surpass our aforementioned goal. Our employees are pushing it on social media because it is such a worthy organization. You can even join our team if you want OR you can start your own! You could start a team with your family members or even with your coworkers! To join our team you will need to follow this link for Preston Automotive Group March of Dimes Team. If you would like to start your own March of Dimes team then you would follow the second link.
The event will kickoff not on the 3rd but rather Saturday, May 2nd at dusk with an awesome fireworks display from Zambelli Fireworks in the field behind the Autoplex. The walk, as mentioned, will take place on May 3rd. Registration will begin at 12pm and the walk will begin promptly afterward at 1PM. The course will start and end at the Preston Autoplex and travel 1.5 miles through the town of Preston and back — totaling 3 miles. After the walk, at around 2PM, we will have Mike Hines and his band The Look perform and there will be food from local eateries. In addition, there will be activities for kids as well as mascot appearances by Sherman Shorebird and the Preston Frog!
It’s bound to be a great day rain or shine and we are very excited about raising money for the March for Babies Organization. Please join us on May 3rd for this wonderful event, we’d love to see you there!
