CASTLE ROCK, Colo., Aug. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Medved Autoplex partnered with Ford Motor Company back in May to raise money for Castle View High School as well as the rest of the Douglas County School District by offering test drives of their fleet of new Ford cars, trucks and SUVs. The set up was simple. Anyone 18 years old and up with a valid driver's license and active car insurance could take any of the vehicles available out for a test drive around the Castle View High School parking lot. For every test drive completed, Ford Motor Company would donate $20 to the school.
The surrounding community responded in droves to spend a lot of Ford's money. On May 4, 184 drivers turned out to take their turn behind the wheel. Ford then donated $20 per test drive for a grand total $3,680; considering the maximum donation was $6,000, the amount raised by the volunteers from Medved Autoplex and participants from Castle View High School help eat up over 60 percent of the donation limit. Since the "Drive 4 Ur School" program was launched in 2007, Ford has donated nearly $16 million dollars to deserving school districts all over the United States.
Medved Autoplex and Ford pulled no punches when it came to the lineup that was available for people to take on a 7-10 minute test drive. The Ford Mustang naturally was among the busiest of the test drive vehicles that as turning laps that day. In a close second was North America's bestselling pickup truck for the past three decades, the Ford F-150. The crowds that showed up to take part in the charity event also got some seat time in the Ford Explorer, Ford Escape and Ford Fusion. Finally, in a nod to the environment, the newly released Ford C-Max Energi, a new Ford hybrid vehicle was also on hand to whet the whistles of those in attendance.
Everybody who took a test drive was not pressured for a sale or was on the hook for anything else. That was not the goal of this event. The main goal for the day was for everyone to get acquainted with available lineup of Ford Vehicles.
Medved Autoplex would like to thank everyone who turned out to the event. They would also like to thank Ford Motor Company for sponsoring the "Drive 4 Ur School" program as well as all the volunteers who came together to make it happen.
