Driving for Kids
Begun in 2016 by Ross and Ann Robbins and based on similar events in the eastern US, Driving for Kids is a fun, but challenging, driving event of 700 – 1,000 miles. Each year we will drive a new route on great roads through beautiful countryside in the company of other classic cars and all for a good cause. These runs have so far raised more than $500,000 for our charity of choice; Roundup River Ranch. Our Colorado version will follow this format this coming September.
Driving for Kids is not a race, nor is it a high-priced exotic car rally like the Colorado Grand. It isn’t so posh and formal. The event is conducted in the spirit of “Motoring” on public roads at or near posted speeds: there are no checkpoints or deliberately vague, misleading or trick instructions. Teams travel in groups, take care to keep the cars together and make group stops.
Driving for Kids is a fun long weekend with fellow owners of old classic cars plus a few others that fit the spirit of “Motoring” as opposed to the “mad dash to get there” and who want all the camaraderie/security that comes with such a group. We define an eligible car as one that is at least 30 years old that would make the kids at camp want to sit in the driver’s seat and would produce a giggle.
