CP MOTORSPORTS – THE TONY STEWART FOUNDATION ANNOUNCES THE FACES OF TEAM ONE CURE FOR 2017 INDY 500
Tony Stewart is a three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and his passion about people, pets, and motorsports will be on full display during the 101st Running of the Indianapolis 500 this Memorial Day weekend. The Indiana native announced that his Tony Stewart Foundation has launched the Faces of Team One Cure, which will adorn the No. 77 Lucas Oil/Team One Cure Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Honda driven by Jay Howard in this year's Greatest Spectacle in Racing.
"Together we're racing to find the cure for cancer in both pets and people," shared Tony Stewart. "It's an innovative yet proven approach where treatment of pets with cancer can improve therapies for people. It perfectly aligns with my foundation's mission and we're excited to share stories of people and pets benefitting from comparative oncology."
The Tony Stewart Foundation focuses on aiding and assisting children who are critically ill or physically disabled; animals at-risk or endangered; and drivers injured during racing. The newest addition to his foundation, launched earlier this year, Team One Cure, is an important extension of these priorities.
Team One Cure has a primary mission to provide awareness and understanding on breakthrough cancer treatments through comparative oncology research. These ongoing collaborations between human and veterinary oncologists nationwide are changing the face of cancer research and treatment - for pets and for people.
Team One Cure is a program about people and pets. Team One Cure is comprised of everyone who joins Tony in sharing our stories, making a donation and participating in the Faces of Team One Cure campaign.
