Place a Bid For Your Chance to Take Part in This Exclusive, Once-in-a-Lifetime Event
As you may know, DRIVE4COPD is the largest national awareness campaign for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). COPD, which is an umbrella term that encompasses chronic bronchitis and emphysema, is estimated to affect more than 24 million Americans, but half of them don’t know it and remain undiagnosed. COPD takes one life every four minutes and is the only leading cause of death that is increasing in prevalence.
Over the past two years, DRIVE4COPD has worked with a number of celebrities, patient and professional organizations and businesses with the goal of finding these missing millions of people who may be at risk and encouraging them to take a five-question screener. Last weekend’s DRIVE4COPD300 race at Daytona was part of this initiative.
There is an inaugural DRIVE4COPD event coming up on Friday, March 23 called the DRIVE4COPD Pro-Am Celebrity Racing Challenge where well-known faces in entertainment, music and business will take the wheel of a NASCAR stock car to support awareness, screenings and research for COPD.
You can participate in this and earn a spot among this celebrity race team by bidding the highest on one of two VIP race seats being auctioned off by the COPD Foundation through eBay’s Giving Works program powered by MissionFish. The first auction began on February 28 and ends on March 8. Starting bids are $1,500 which includes travel and accommodations. Proceeds from the auction will be donated to the COPD Foundation.

This will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience all for a great cause.
