After an exhilarating journey filled with excitement, challenges, and heart-warming camaraderie, the Dash To The Med 2 charity car race has come to a triumphant end. The event, which began with 15 soft-top cars departing from Old Reigatians Rugby Club, has not only captivated participants and spectators alike but also raised an astounding £80,000 for four deserving charities.
From the moment the cars revved their engines and embarked on their adventure, it was clear that this charity event was more than just a race. The Dash To The Med 2 brought together 30 enthusiastic participants who navigated the picturesque route from Reigate to Antibes on the Mediterranean coast, all in the spirit of supporting those in need.
With a strict set of rules in place, the drivers embraced the challenge with great enthusiasm. The designated route purposely excluded motorways, ensuring that participants experienced the true beauty and diversity of the French countryside. Moreover, the use of navigation systems was strictly prohibited, pushing the drivers to rely on their wits and navigational skills, adding an extra layer of excitement to the event.
The key requirement for this charity race was that each of the 15 cars had to be priced under £1,000, with a 10% allowance for dressing up and repairs. This limitation ensured that the focus remained on the charitable aspect of the event rather than the extravagance of the vehicles. Rain or shine, the cars could only be driven with the roof down, making for an unforgettable and immersive driving experience.
Alister Gregson, the MD of Fluid Hygiene, exemplified the spirit of the event by cruising in his 2006 Mini Convertible with the number 13. His dedication and commitment to the cause resonated with all the participants, inspiring them to go the extra mile.
The four deserving charities that benefitted from this extraordinary event are Renewed Hope, ESDAS, RGS Foundation, and My Name’s Doddie Foundation. Renewed Hope provides practical solutions and emotional support to the homeless, vulnerable, and isolated individuals in East Surrey. ESDAS stands against domestic abuse, offering assistance to those affected and promoting a life free from violence. RGS Foundation aims to provide first-class educational opportunities for children with untapped potential and limited financial means, addressing the issue of social mobility. Lastly, My Name’5 Doddie Foundation is dedicated to eradicating Motor Neuron Disease, tirelessly working toward a world free from this debilitating condition.
The £75,000 raised through the Dash To The Med 2 charity car race will make a significant impact on the lives of countless individuals supported by these charities. It is a testament to the compassion and generosity of the participants, donors, and the community at large. Together, they have created a lasting legacy of hope and opportunity for those in need.
As the race concludes, we extend our heartfelt congratulations to every participant, volunteer, and supporter who made this event a resounding success. Your unwavering dedication and commitment to these noble causes will forever be remembered and appreciated.
While the Dash To The Med 2 may have come to an end, the impact it has made will endure for years to come. Let us continue to support these deserving charities and work together to create a world filled with compassion, hope, and opportunity for all.
