Xtreme Karting Race Ahead for CHAS

Xtreme Karting is holding a Team Endurance style race event at its centre in Newbridge, Edinburgh on 20 March to raise money for Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS). This will be their third annual fundraising event for the charity .

Working together with Real Radio and Frankie & Benny’s,  the Team Endurance event will aim to raise money to help families across Scotland who use CHAS services.

With 12 teams already signed up for the event, Xtreme Karting says there is still room for more as they hope to beat last year’s total sum raised of £13,500.

Teams of up to six drivers can sign up for the race event with a minimum donation of £500, all proceeds going to CHAS. Teams are given an incentive to raise as much money as possible as grid position for the race is determined by the amount of sponsorship raised. After a 30 minute practice session the two hour endurance race begins, with trophies presented to the three teams clocking up the highest number of laps in that time.

They kicked things off with a visit to Robin House Children’s Hospice in Balloch on Thursday 28 February 2013.

CHAS Fundraiser Amy Telford said: “Xtreme Karting are fantastic supporters of ours and we’d like to thank them for organising this popular event. The money raised will help us improve the lives of children and young people across Scotland with life-shortening conditions.”

Barrie Henderson, Managing Director at Xtreme Karting said: “This event is a great way for teams to pit their tactical skills against one other and have some adrenaline fuelled fun while raising money for a very worthwhile cause. We’re hoping to make this year bigger and better than ever.”
