Stafford Springs, CT — Ted Christopher has captured more checkered flags at Stafford Motor Speedway, 108, than any driver in the track’s long and storied history. For the 2010 season, Christopher will have extra motivation to add to that career win total. For every victory that Christopher records this season at Stafford, he will donate $100 to Breast Cancer Research in Connecticut. Christopher will also donate $1 for every lap he completes at Stafford this season.
“I met up with Nancy Baccaro from the UCONN Cancer Center at a Christmas party last year,” said Christopher. “Nancy works in the breast cancer research department and we got to talking about setting something up where I could help make a donation to breast cancer research in Connecticut through my racing. Every race I win at Stafford this year will be a $100 donation and every lap that I complete is $1 that I will donate. A friend of my wife’s has had two masectomy’s already at age 24 and 27, so it hits close to home and I’d like to help raise awareness about breast cancer and breast cancer research. The great thing about my donation is that it all stays in the state of Connecticut. The donations get split up among the different breast cancer hospitals in the state.”
As part of his efforts to raise awareness about breast cancer research, Christopher will have a special autograph item at next Friday night’s Coors Light SK Modified® 100 event.
