Pictured here all of the items we were able to gather and our intern, Whitney, that helped oversee the campaign.

Drive 4 UR School 2009
Drive 4 UR School began in 2007 when Ford Motor Co. and local Ford dealers saw a growing need in schools. With school budgets growing tighter, schools often faced the difficult decision to cut extra circular activities. Ford and local dealers know how important these programs are to the growth and development of students and decided to give back. Hence, the Drive 4 UR School program launched. The program encourages communities to gather during the event and test drive a vehicle out of the Ford line-up. For each test drive, Ford Motor Co. donates $20, up to $6,000, to support extra circulars.

Bill Colwell Ford got on board in 2009 making it the first annual Drive 4 UR School event with the proceeds going to the Hudson Athletic Boosters. With help from the Hudson community, we were able to raise $6,000 in our first year! Thank you for all who supported this event!
