MESA, AZ – DECEMBER 21, 2010: ‘Tis the season for giving and FAST-Aid would like to formally thank all the donors that participated in helping all of the victims and injured during 2010. “The generosity made us remember that we are all a part of the off-road family together,” said Jared Tetzlaff, President of FAST-Aid. FAST-Aid continues to accept tax-deductible donations, donate today to include in your 2010 tax receipts.
FAST-Aid is the non-profit organization that has assisted eight families of the deceased and the dozen plus injured after the MDR California 200 off-road accident, an injured pit crew member at a VORRA Race in Nevada and who has hosted multiple CPR and safety related courses during the 2010 year. “These specific events may be out of the light of the media, but we continue cutting checks to help assist people in their greatest time of need,” explained Tetzlaff. “$150,000 sounds like a lot of money until you divide it among all those in need including the families of the deceased, the severely injured, and those needing counseling for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). We also pledged to set up an education trust fund for the children who lost parents with these donations.”
Beyond the needs of 2010, FAST-Aid is preparing for 2011 and a long-term future dedicated to providing financial, educational and personal assistance to injured racers, media and pit crews. FAST-Aid is a non-profit 501(c)(3) that accepts donations of any size at any time, not just in response to a specific event. Tax Deduction receipts are available.
