Carter and Plumb decided to use their 2013 Rolex 24 At Daytona racing program with Magnus Racing to design a fund raising program to raise money for one of the most recognized and fastest growing childhood cancer foundations, The B+ Foundation.

The program is named “B+ FOUNDATION CHALLENGE” and the goal is to raise $100,000 starting today and during the week of the Rolex 24. “The B+ Foundation Challenge” has already received the support of Eagle Tech, Jetset Magazine, MOMO and Motorsport.com.

Carter, Plumb and The B+ Foundation are hoping for direct donations from the fans and from corporate auto racing industry leaders and new companies interested to add this program to their social mission and make a donation to help in the fight against childhood cancers. 100% of the contribution will go to The B+ Foundation and donations are tax deductible. The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation is an IRS-certified 501(c) 3 organization.

The B+ Foundation has put a text fund raising program in place. By Texting the word “FIGHT” to 80 000 anyone can make a straight $10 donation to B+. The goal is for everyone to spread the word to help and encourage their friends, colleagues, clients, prospects, employees, etc., to donate.
