LOS ANGELES, April 5, 2018 – From daily car rentals to local driving events staged throughout the country, nationally recognized organizations such as DriveShare by Hagerty, regional chapters of Ferrari and Porsche car clubs and NCM Motorsports Park are supporting non-profit Drive Toward a Cure in its quest to raise funds during April’s Parkinson’s Awareness Month. Each group will provide outreach to members and the community while hosting enjoyable driving events showcasing that ‘driving has never meant more!’
DriveShare by Hagerty, a newly launched car sharing platform, has committed to donate $10 for each rental day booked during the month of April to Drive Toward a Cure. This applies to all rentals of vehicles ranging from collectibles to modern day exotics and can be utilized from its nationwide collection of vehicles: https://www.driveshare.com/ .
According to Steve Haas, an executive with DriveShare by Hagerty, the brand has quickly become the nation’s premiere enthusiast car rental community, bringing the ‘sharing economy’ into the car lover’s garage, with thousands of fun rides to rent throughout the country. DriveShare will additionally be sponsoring Drive Toward a Cure’s May 3-6, 2018 ‘California Adventure’ multi-day rally. With select vehicles located in both Northern and Southern California, the DriveShare program is a great resource for the 2nd annual event that offers two simultaneous departures for entrant vehicles that range from vintage to luxury and all car marques in between.
Deb Pollack, founder of Drive Toward a Cure and longtime automotive industry veteran, began the non-profit, along with her partner Mark Davidson of Intelliga Communications, to honor her mother a decade after her passing. The idea was to broaden driving opportunities that could benefit those that are challenged by Parkinson’s and seek funding to find a cure.
