Connect First and World Racing League are extremely proud to support the Anchor Center for Blind Children.

The company's first ever title race, the "Connect First Charity Challenge," kicked off its debut on Labor Day weekend at the High Plains Raceway located near Byrnes, Colo. With nearly 30 teams and over 200 people racing throughout the two-day endurance event, this charity race put Connect First and World Racing League on the right track by raising $6,000 in donations. Raffle prizes included an iPad, a Mario Andretti autographed helmet and a set of free Yokohama tires.

Connect First COO and lifetime racing enthusiast Dan Candee raced in the event. “Connect First and World Racing League are extremely proud to support the Anchor Center, which helps blind children live the best life possible through early intervention vision services,” said Candee. “We were thrilled to have helped them raise $6,000 while pursuing one of our passions: endurance racing.”

All proceeds will find their home at Anchor Center for Blind Children, a fundamental Colorado foundation that helps childhood blindness. For more information on the Anchor Center for Blind Children, please visit their website here.

CFF has sponsored and raised funds for other notable institutions such as Front Range Hippotherapy and the American Diabetes Association – Tour de Cure.
