NORTHEAST MEETS MID-WEST FOR THE RACE TO END CHILD ABUSE
“…principles, passion and a nudge from the man above birthed a partnership to support children without a voice…”
Jennifer Grube, Founder and CEO of F.A.C.E.S. Faith, Accountability, Community, Education, Services recently announced an association with Eagle Media Group and its CEO, John Calvaresi to launch a national motorsports related campaign titled “Race to End Child Abuse”. When asked about the reason for their association, Grube notes, “Child Abuse Prevention and violence impacts all of us and crosses all economic, social and racial lines. In this case, principles, passion and a nudge from the man above birthed an unlikely partnership between an enthusiastic Northern Social Work Administrator, a dynamic, Mid-Western motorsports media owner, and legendary racing icons to support children without a voice. Now that, my friends is fantastic!”
Once headquartered in Mooresville, North Carolina, referred to as “The heart of NASCAR” and closely associated with many marketing and philanthropic endeavors of that organization, Calvaresi is enthusiastic and eager to launch this campaign stating “It’s my pleasure to be integral in associating motorsports with this amazing organization that has been so successful in their efforts to stop child abuse before it happens through counseling and educating at risk families before the abuse takes place.” He went on to say, “In my opinion, more organizations should take this proactive approach…it’s so much better to stop abuse before it begins than to treat the victims and jail the perpetrators after the fact”
As the campaign is motorsports related, it is championed by the Mattioli family, owners of Pocono Raceway, who have made their facility available for an invitation only launch party slated to take place in early 2014. FX Marketing Group, publishers of the Official NASCAR Hall of Fame Yearbook, are also supporting the campaign through the sale of advertising in their Hall of Fame Magazine as well as giving special consideration to the campaign’s sponsors at the Hall Of Fame induction ceremony to take place in Charlotte North Carolina. In addition, Fox Sports television network has agreed to participate by extending exposure for the campaign and its sponsors during their live NASCAR Hall of Fame telecast and during other motorsports related programming.
F.A.C.E.S. Faith, Accountability, Community, Education and Services is a community benefit organization with over 125 years of experience in human services with a vision to end child abuse. They move toward this vision through Counseling, Education, Outreach and Prevention. Uniquely, F.A.C.E.S. is not dependent on federal or state funding thus private support enables the organization to provide quality, client-driven services impacting dozens of children and families in Northeastern USA.
