Meet Celebrity Ambassador Todd Peck!
Todd was diagnosed with Juvenile Arthritis, a condition that affects 300,000 in the U.S., when he was 13 years old. He was determined not to let this debilitating condition stop him from fulfilling his dream of racing in the NASCAR series. Todd and the Peck Motorsports team are proud to partner with the Arthritis Foundation.
Todd is Driven to Move to inspire others who suffer from arthritis related conditions and help the Arthritis Foundation raise awareness in order to increase support and research.
Families of children with JA are encouraged to go to www.peckmotorsports.com to submit their design. Peck will pick a winner and wear that helmet in the races he competes in 2013. The winning helmet designer will also receive the helmet they designed at the conclusion of the race season. In addition, a duplicate helmet will be produced and used to raise funds for the Arthritis Foundation in 2013. The team works with the Foundation to bring additional awareness and funds.
"This was something we thought up to help get the kids more involved in our race program," said Peck. "We need to continue to celebrate their accomplishments as they live with JA. This will hopefully prove that they continue to do great things. We're looking forward to seeing the designs that come in."
