Looking for a good cause that involves lots of driving? The 2011 48 Hours of Tristate will be held January 12-16, raises donations for the American Cancer Society, and is Subaru-themed.
The 48 Hours of Tristate first ran in 2002 in support of families impacted by the September 11 attacks and has grown over the last nine years. After starting with just five cars on the inaugural drive, the event gathered nearly 60 vehicles this year and raised $35,000, with $10,000 donated from Subaru.
The 10th anniversary journey this coming January will start at Subaru's United States headquarters in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. Both Subaru and non-Subaru owners and enthusiasts are encouraged to participate and the Subaru of Indiana Automotive plant in Lafayette, Indiana, will be the next destination. Attendees will get a personal facility tour before taking off for Cincinnati, Ohio, then Buffalo, New York, and finally, Harriman, New York. Sure, the drive has evolved to visit more than three states and will take longer than 48 hours to complete but it's for a worthy cause.
Potential participants, sponsors, and well-wishers can get more information at the 48 Hours of Tristate Web site.
