Take the Drive, Make a Difference for EKFH!

Cranbrook, BC… On Saturday, September 19, community members will have the opportunity to test drive a new Ford vehicle and, at the same time; help raise funds for East Kootenay Foundation for Health’s areas of greatest need.

The test drive will be set up in the parking lot of Denham Ford from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., where several brand new Fords, for licensed drivers ages 19 will be available for a test drive.Drive One Logo

The Drive one 4 UR Community program was developed as a fun, engaging way to help communities to raise money to support non-profit organizations. For every valid test-drive completed, Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to EKFH, up to $6,000!

Since Denham Ford began holding Drive One 4 UR Community events in Cranbrook in 2010, they have been able to raise and donate a significant amount of funds to a wide range of organizations. To date they have raised over $15,000, and have hosted over 5 community Drive One Events ….. and the number keeps on growing!

So, come down for a hot dog and drink and take a Ford for a quick test drive with an EKFH volunteer – no sales person involved. Anyone with a valid driver’s licence earns us $20. To keep the children entertained there will fun activities, such as pony rides and a bouncy castle.

Drivers can avoid waiting in line the day of the event by pre-registering for the test drive at the following site:  https://www.drive4ur.com/en/drive4urcommunity000000/Register.

“The Drive One for Your program allows the local community to get involved without costing them a nickel! All they have to do is come out and test-drive one of Denham’s vehicles. For every test-drive, Ford will donate $20 to help support EKFH’s areas of greatest need. The maximum that can be raised is $6000 and we want your help to aim for this target!” states Braydon Denham, dealer principal of Denham Ford.
