Go Daddy Girl Puts a Pink Twist on NASCARPress Release
Danica Patrick Leverages Go Daddy in Fight Against Breast Cancer
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (Sept. 1, 2012) — Danica Patrick’s GoDaddy.com No. 7 Chevy is going “pink” in honor of the Breast Cancer Awareness campaign next month. The hot pink car revealed today in Atlanta, is the car Danica plans to drive in NASCAR’s upcoming Nationwide Series race in Charlotte October 12.
The idea is to generate buzz for The National Breast Cancer Foundation and it’s a team effort. Go Daddy and JR Motorsports are sponsoring the pink-themed car as part of the Chase Authentics’ “Check Your Headlights” program, which works to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research and education. Each year some 200,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer. Of those, 40,000 succumb to the disease, according to The National Breast Cancer Foundation.
“I love the idea of a pink car to help raise awareness about breast cancer. The No. 7 Chevy is known for its iconic Go Daddy green color … I think the pink car will pop and attract attention for a good cause,” Danica said. “We all know someone who has been impacted by this disease and NASCAR fans are so passionate, I know they’ll step up to help the cause.”
Go Daddy, the world’s largest provider of Web hosting and domain name registrations, is also donating money to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, along with the Public Interest Registry which manages .ORG domain names. A $50,000 donation is planned as part of the program in Charlotte next month.
“We are fortunate to be in a position to help others — awareness and prevention are keys to ‘beating breast cancer,’” said Go Daddy’s Marketing Vice President Teri D’Hooge, whose own family is dealing with the devastating disease. “Women’s health has been a cornerstone of Go Daddy’s charity work over the years. We think this campaign is especially powerful because it plays off of Danica and NASCAR in a fun, non-conventional way. Now we hope NASCAR fans will help get more people talking about the breast cancer battle, which unfortunately has touched so many families.”
In conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness month, Chase Authentics and JR Motorsports will feature a “Check Your Headlights” line of apparel and products. A portion of the proceeds go directly to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. To learn more about the “Check Your Headlights” campaign, visit: www.NASCAR.com/
