In what was originally scheduled as the season finale, the Amsoil Ironman round of the 2011 GNCC is special for a different reason.
This weekend, riders from across the country as well as spectators will honor breast cancer victims, survivors, and their loved ones.
The color pink will be the theme of the weekend, as the GNCC community comes together to support such an important cause.
The special weekend events begin Friday, as GBC Motorsports’ Johnny Gallagher and Jeff Pickens join a few other pro racers as they help 5th and 6th graders with a craft project to help raise awareness for the fight against breast cancer.
The racers will visit New Market Elementary School in New Market, Indiana and will help the students craft pink ribbon pins, and in turn the students will receive free entry to the race all weekend.
All around the world of sports we see professional athletes displaying their support for breast cancer awareness by wearing pink items.
Baseball players swap their mitts for pink versions, football players wear pink towels and cleats, and now GBC Motorsports is joining the fight for a cure.
GBC Motorsports will be giving away limited edition pink GBC Motorsports stickers to help raise breast cancer awareness.
The first 500 people to stop by the GBC Motorsports area in the pro pits will receive one of these stickers.
As a long and successful GNCC season begins to wind down, GBC Motorsports reminds fans to take a step back and reflect on more important issues.
Almost everyone has been affected by cancer, whether its been a friend, family member, co-worker or themselves. GBC Motorsports is proud to do what it can to raise awareness for the fight against breast cancer.
