Companies Team Up to Support America’s Paralyzed Heroes

BOCA RATON, Fla., and WASHINGTON, April 13 /PRNewswire/ — Reality Racing, Inc. and Paralyzed Veterans of America, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, announced today a cross-promotional partnership to benefit America’s paralyzed heroes.

“Paralyzed Veterans strives to ensure that no American, especially those who risked their lives to protect the freedoms we take for granted every day, is denied access to employment, education, cultural activities or community life because of Disability,” stated Mark C. Dowis, Associate Executive Director of Marketing and Development, Paralyzed Veterans. “We are extremely pleased that Reality Racing has taken up our cause and made it their own.”

The partnership will promote the SpeedyTags awareness campaign — “military dog tags” uniquely designed for race fans imprinted with the names and likenesses of some of the biggest names in racing – in an effort to raise much needed funds to support our nation’s veterans with spinal cord injuries.

Lee F. Schaefer, President of Reality Racing Inc stated, “Paralyzed Veterans of America is a very worthy organization. We wanted to give something back to them for everything they do and helping to promote their projects, products and services is our way of thanking the brave men and women who have been wounded in the service of our country. We are honored by our association with them and are including them in various ways in Reality Racing — The Rookie Challenge … from paralyzed veterans waving start flags for races to our contestants proudly wearing their logo.”

Reality Racing — The Rookie Challenge is scheduled to premiere on Spike TV in May. Each 60-minute episode of the series will begin on Saturday mornings at 9:00 A.M. Eastern Time as part of Spike’s high-revving, testosterone-packed Powerblock, and will be telecast in the United States, its territories and possessions, including Puerto Rico and Canada.
