It’s that time of year—we all just want to go for a long, scenic drive in our vintage cars. If you need more motivation than warm weather and an automotive soundtrack, consider joining us out on the road to support a worthy cause—and potentially win some sweet prizes along the way.Hagerty has partnered with Drive Toward a Cure for the fourth year in a row to give drivers across the U.S. a little extra push to get behind the wheel. Those who choose to enter will log miles and work to collect donations for Parkinson’s Disease research over the 75 days between June 21 and Labor Day (September 7). A selection of prizes will be awarded based on miles logged and experiences shared on social media.
“No one would deny the memories we all retain from great drives—whether youthful recollections for nostalgic cars or the roads we envision on a crisp and clear summer day or night,” said Doug Clark, Vice President of Publishing and Business Development for Hagerty. “The ‘Summer Drive Toward a Cure’ program is an opportunity to get out safely and just feel good, while doing some good for others, too.”
If you are not sure where to drive, we will being sharing route suggestions throughout the summer that will hopefully give you some inspiration. Those who are out on the road are encouraged to share their stories and photos both on social media and in the Hagerty Community, where posts will be selected weekly for smaller prizes.
The grand prizes will be awarded after Labor Day to the drivers who log the most miles and raise the most money. Over the last four years, Drive Toward a Cure has raised over $400,000 for Parkinson’s Disease research and patient care. To get involved, visit drivetowardacure.org/summer to register.
If you want to participate but find yourself without a vintage car, use the discount code DTAC2020 on DriveShare.com and rent your dream ride for a day or two. That discount code will also prompt DriveShare to donate its proceeds from the rental fee to Drive Toward a Cure.
