Boys & Girls Club Fundraiser
This page is an out-of-date donation portal for this fundraiser.
Please go to: www.epicevroadtrip.com to learn more and donate.
We are traveling over 18,000 MILES across the U.S. and Canada in an ELECTRIC VEHICLE (Tesla Model 3) and are attending baseball games in all 30 MLB ballparks in 30 days (or less) in order to:
- Raise awareness that all EVs are no longer short-range, city-trapped econoboxes. A minimum goal to having 1,000 people take that first test drive in a superior, gas-free, super-low maintenance, instantaneouly torquing, game changing and FUN vehicle - and see that the future is NOW;
- Raise funds (and gain volunteers) for local Boys and Girls Club chapters throughout the country (with an initial goal of $1.00 per seat in each MLB stadium - totaling over $1.2M). Raise awareness of the outstanding and wide ranging programs they provide our youth. Educating that proactive investment in today's youth pays huge dividends.
- Celebrate America's Greatest Pastime - by completing the holy grail of baseball - watching games in each of the 30 MLB ballparks in less than 30 days (and working on these two important causes everyday along the way.)
- Attempting to set a Guinness World Records for "Fastest Time to Visit and Watch a Complete Game in all 30 MLB Stadiums by Land" (and in an EV no less) - and "Longest Journey by Electric Vehicle (non-solar)". With the the combination of Tesla's range and the extensive Tesla Supercharging network - electric vehicles are no longer limited to short trips.
