Team As Our Own Takes Bayou City

It was quite a showing! Saturday, March 12, our racing team stepped to the starting line in Houston to sponsor As Our Own and Fuel the Hope in India.

The 8-member team raised $2,806 to benefit As Our Own. The funds will help break the cycle of enslavement, exploitation, and slavery for girls in India.

We want to give a BIG thank you to each member of the team! Your commitment to raise awareness and funds for As Our Own is greatly appreciated. Congratulations on your racing success!
