Boston Motorsports Group teams with Escape School Child Safety Program to help keep children safe.
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (January 22, 2003) -- Boston Motorsports Group and driver Scott Deware, of Easton, Mass., have announced that the team and its #18 Mosler MT900R will represent the Dignity Memorial Escape School, a nationally acclaimed child abduction prevention program, at the upcoming Rolex 24 At Daytona and additional selected events during the 2003 season.
"Several years ago I hosted an Escape School in Quincy, Massachusetts," said Deware. "There were over 500 children and parents in the hall. It was standing room only".
Deware was so impressed by the program that he mentioned to Escape School founder Bob Stuber that if an opportunity ever came up he would love to become more involved in the program. To Deware's delight, he soon received word that he had been selected to be personally trained and certified by Stuber to present the Escape School program to others. Since then Deware has presented programs to thousands of children and adults including programs for the NASCAR Winston Cup families, Motor Racing Outreach and has been personally honored by the U.S. Navy Blue Angels for his service.
The Dignity Memorial Escape School program was created to help children avoid being abducted and teach them techniques to escape if abducted. The program has been presented throughout the U.S. and has been highlighted on many national television shows including the Oprah Winfrey Show, Sally Jesse Raphael, Good Morning America, 48 Hours and America's Most Wanted. It has also been featured in many local and national publications. The Escape School is different than any other program because it teaches children to identify strangers not by what they look like, but how they act.
The Boston Motorsports Group Mosler MT900R race car will display the programs' www.escapeschool.com web address and logo. The team will also have information about the program on hand in the garage area and information on how parents can have Team Escape School come to their community. Programs are sponsored locally by the proud affiliates of Dignity Memorial (www.dignitymemorial.com), and are always presented free of charge. For more information about the programs you can log on to the web site or call 1-800-9CARING.
