NORTH BEND – Drive 4 UR School began in 2007 as a way for Ford to give back to communities across the country. The idea was simple: Test-drive a Ford vehicle from a local dealership, get money for your school. The success of the school program inspired the launch of Drive 4 UR Community, allowing Ford Dealers to partner with nonprofit organizations as well. Thousands of events and $35 million in donations later, participants are still test-driving for a cause that they – and Ford – are equally passionate about.
Today, in conjunction with the North Bend Central Invitational Track Meet, the high school will host test drives from the front entrance of the school. Drivers must be 18 or older with a valid drivers license and vehicle insurance. Drivers will have the opportunity to test drive a Ford F150, Expedition, the new Ecosport SUV, Mustangs, Fusion, Edge or Explorer.
The goal for today’s fundraiser is $8,000 that will fund the public school’s supplemental programs. Stop out between 10AM and 6PM to drive for North Bend Central!
