Ohio, Pennsylvania – Rally North America (RNA) has wrapped up their 2012 rally season and are proud to report they have raised $61,827 for the Accelerated Cure Project (ACP). ACP is ‘accelerating research towards a cure for multiple sclerosis’ and RNA was proud to team up with them this year and make ACP their charity of choice.
Every year Rally North America selects a charity to ‘rally’ behind and urges its participants to raise as much money as possible for these worthy causes. This year, the 110 teams consisting of roughly 220 participants, included Autos.ca own Mike Schlee, helped to raise $61,827; a record amount for a Rally North America season.
For the first time in its short existence, this year included two separate RNA rallies. The 2012 Rally DIXIE was the ‘east side’ rally and took teams from Noblesville, IN down to Fort Walton Beach, FL over the course of 3 days along the old Dixie highway in late June. Wrapping up just this week was RNA’s ‘west side’ rally, the 2012 Rocky Mountain Rally, which took teams from Colorado Springs, CO to Las Vegas, NV.
Those on the East Coast of Canada keep your eyes open in 2013 as RNA is heading your way.
