Mitchell to Compete in 24 Hours of LeMons Race to Raise Money for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

Team will donate all money raised to Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Mitchell announced it will once again compete in the 24 Hours of LeMons — an endurance race for cars valued at $500 or less. Mitchell’s Lapping for Leukemia team will challenge the competition in its 1979 BMW 528e12 to raise funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society at the Buttonwillow Raceway Park outside of Bakersfield, Calif., Dec. 3-4. All funds raised will be donated directly to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The team raises money via a "donation per lap pledge" model, typical of walk-a-thons, and is also accepting lump sum pledges at via credit card using a secure donation form.

"Our team is really excited to gear up and compete for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in this year’s 24 Hours of LeMons race.  It’s a great cause that we’re proud to be a part of again. It helps raise money, awareness and builds community support for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to fund the research needed to end this devastating disease," said Beau Sullivan, Mitchell’s senior director of user experience and one of the team’s drivers. "Of course, we’d love to win the race, but our number one goal is to hit the $7,000 mark, more than doubling last year’s donation."

Sullivan added, "We are encouraging everyone to show their support whatever way they can. If you can’t make it to the race, please show your support by visiting and pledging whatever you are able to kindly contribute to this noble cause. You can also see a preview of our car’s new look and photos from last year’s race."
