Chili Pepper Racing delights Toronto's Evergreen Centre for Street Youth but sidelined from race during 11th hour testing incident
Toronto, On. CA. July 5, 2007. Chili Pepper Racing and A Mother's Arms' clothing company made a scheduled visit to one of Toronto's oldest and most unique mission's street youth center, bringing approximately $2,000 in infant clothing, race swag and tickets to the Steelback Grand Prix of Toronto.
The Evergreen Centre for Street Youth is one of five facilities operated by the Yonge Street Mission focusing on the complex needs of Toronto's large street youth population. A safe haven serving young people ages 16-24, the Centre provides meals, healthcare, job training and employment assistance. Yearly over 8000 individuals are encouraged and cared for, 25% of which are either pregnant or have given birth in the past year.
The new infant clothing was greatly appreciated. "We are overwhelmed by A Mother's Arms' generosity," said Karen Bach, the Centre's Director. "We try to provide for all the needs for the homeless mothers and their babies including formula and diapers, but we have a real need for infant clothing. We are very fortunate to receive such a gift."
During an 11th hour testing incident, Chili Pepper Racing had to sideline The World's First Bio Diesel Touring Car during the SPEED World Challenge Touring Car race, a part of the Steelback Grand Prix of Toronto. Chili Pepper Racing continues to develop their 2006 MK 5 Volkswagen Jetta TDI, "but it has not been a simple task," says Jim Osborn. "This project has come a long way and we are proud of our progress".but we still have more work to do. It is unfortunate that we cannot race this weekend in Toronto but we continue to improve the package. I am definitely looking forward to our next race at Mid-Ohio."
