This Fall, up to 40 classic British cars will set out on a three day, 550 mile drive to benefit Children's charity.
Are You Up For It?
On these pages you will find information on the Pennsylvania ABRR, how to join it, and how to help the teams reach their goals. Specific planning information for the teams is on the Itinerary page.
The 2017 PA ABRR runs over three days, beginning the morning of Friday September 22nd and ending with lunch on Sunday September 24th. This gives us two long driving days Friday and Saturday, and one short day on Sunday.
The route this year will travel the scenic hills of central PA, starting and ending in Quakertown PA, spending Friday night in Altoona PA and Saturday night in Williamsport PA. Highlights along the way include a spectacular private car collection featuring Jaguars and Aston-Martins, a visit to the Cars & Coffee at the Swigart Automobile Museum and a viewing of their famous collection, and a tour of the Pennsylvania College of Technology's automotive restoration workshop where the students will demonstrate their metal shaping skills and how they use 3D printing technology. Saturday's dinner will be prepared by the Culinary School at the College. This should be a very exciting ABRR! Detailed route information and the itinerary can be found on the Itinerary page.
The PA ABRR is limited to 40 teams. We will maintain a waitlist after we have reached 40 teams in the event that some teams drop out, but register early if you want to do the run.
In addition, we have ABRR runs going on this year in 3 other parts of the country:
The 2017 Pennsylvania ABRR will benefit the Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome Program at Children's Specialized Hospital.
"Our Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome Program is specifically designed to help wean children from narcotics once they have been exposed to them prenatally in utero and go through a painful withdrawal process after birth. Infants are carefully monitored by highly skilled clinicians for signs consistent with withdrawal. Each child is cared for based on their individual needs. During their inpatient stay, our team provides innovative programming and expert care to achieve the desired outcomes. Babies are often our most fragile patients but often they are also our strongest. We are proud to be the national leader in neonatal abstinence."
In addition to the NeoNatal program a portion of the money will go towards helping children with traumatic brain injuries during their rehabilitation with much needed equipment.
Instructions for collecting the donation checks and cash can be found on the fundraising page.
