Sponsors Social ROI Opportunity

In 2013, Junior Racing Foundation will focus on motivating inner city high school aged students in the Sister City Challenge: Oakland and Fukuoka, Japan High School Velodrome Bicycle Racing.

Our 2013 program will be in the Hellyer Velodrome (San Jose, CA) and Kurume City Keirin Stadium (Fukuoka, Japan).  1984 Olympic silver medalist Nelson Vails, 2012 PanAm triple medalist Beth Newell and others will be guest motivational speakers.

In the Summer time, inner city youth have little or no opportunities to participate in organized sports of any kind.  Sports are expensive and public entities no longer have adequate funds.

Our  program is designed to get kids within the community to do an activity and showcase them with traditional/social media to demonstrate role models. On the other side it’s a unique community development/marketing opportunity for the right kind of sponsors.
