Join us on June 13, 2015 for the Inaugural Riley Carr Memorial Lawn Mower Derby. This event will feature lawn mower races put on by the Mason-Dixon Lawn Mower Racing Association!
Racing 2 Cure is the benefiting charity of this event that is in memory of longtime Howard County resident, Riley Carr. Mr. Carr battled Prostate Cancer for 10 years, and passed away on March 30 of this year. The Executive Director of Racing 2 Cure, Bradley Carpenter, is a grandson of Mr. Carr and Glenelg High School Class of 2010 Alum.
The event is free for the community and donations will be accepted on site to help families fighting cancer. Racing 2 Cure pays for everyday needs of families fighting cancer, including utilities, rent, transportation, lawn care, daycare, tutoring and many more.
All proceeds from this event will directly benefit families in Howard and surrounding counties. Maryland Ground Maintenance LLC, the first Official Landscaping Partner, will be providing free services to families starting later this fall.
