GrandPrix Challenge Raises $57,000 for the Swinerton Foundation

This week, the Swinerton Foundation raced – literally! – toward building better communities.

Thursday, May 30th, marked the Swinerton Foundation’s Annual GrandPrix Challenge at Unser Karting & Events in Denver. The event serves as a fundraiser for the Foundation. Participants enjoyed go-kart racing on a state-of-the-art track, a game room, as well as food and beverages.

Registration fees from individuals and teams that raced, as well as funds from sponsors, totaled $57,000 for the Swinerton Foundation. The Foundation helps build sustainable cities and neighborhoods by supporting health, social services, cultural, education and environmental programs that benefit all members of the community.
