Compassion Internationa to Sponsor Nascar Driver Blake Koch

April 10, 2013

Compassion International has partnered with NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Blake Koch and SR2 Motorsports.

Compassion will be the primary sponsor of Koch’s No. 24 Toyota Camry in this Friday’s O’Reilly Auto Parts 300 at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, anesthetist Texas.

To promote the partnership, check Compassion International has launched to raise awareness of the needs of children living in poverty around the world and to help find sponsors for those children. Koch’s goal is to get 2,400 children sponsored through his partnership with Compassion.

“We are excited that Blake is taking Compassion’s name and the cause of kids in poverty to generous and compassionate NASCAR fans,” says Mark Hanlon, senior vice president of Compassion’s USA Group. “When a sponsor supports a child living in poverty, both lives are changed forever. Blake is helping us to change the stories of children living in poverty. And, of course, we’d all love to see him win!”

“Everyone at both Compassion Racing and SR2 Motorsports is very excited about this new partnership,” said Josh Grodin, who was hired by Koch to lead the Compassion Racing campaign. “And while we are all honored that Compassion will be the main sponsor of Blake’s car this Friday night, the true mission of this partnership is to help bring a little hope to an unfortunate child. I am confident that the good and generous folks who are proud to be NASCAR fans will band together to help sponsor at least 2,400 kids leading up to this week’s race.”
