U.S. Battery Teams With Columbia
ParCar And Drive For Veterans
To Raise Money For Wounded
Veterans And Their Families
Corona, CA - U.S. Battery manufacturing is "powering" an effort by Columbia ParCar Corp of Reedsburg, Wisconsin, in sponsoring Drive For Veterans, a cross-country fundraising trip to provide support and awareness for wounded American veterans. The Drive For Veterans is scheduled to begin October 19, 2013 in San Diego, California, and end approximately 45 days later at The Villages in North Central Florida.
Columbia ParCar has set this entire event up from start to finish, and as the organizing sponsor, the company is providing four vehicles that will be powered by U.S. Battery US2200 deep-cycle golf car batteries. Another two vehicles will tag along as support, with one utilizing eight U.S. Battery AGM2224 batteries. "We're extremely happy that Columbia ParCar chose U.S. Battery products to power its electric vehicles across the country in this important fund raiser," says Don Wallace, U.S. Battery CMO/Executive Vice President. "Because U.S. Battery products carry maximum amperage for longer periods of time, and reach peak capacity sooner, our batteries will give the vehicles the performance necessary to help achieve their daily mileage goals."
The participants will stop at various cities and events across the country, in an effort to raise $500,000 that will be donated to the Fisher House Foundation and Semper Fi Fund. The Fisher House Foundation provides “comfort homes” at major military medical centers to enable family members to be close to a loved one during hospitalization. The Semper Fi Fund provides financial support during hospitalization and recovery. “This cross-country trip will highlight the needs of wounded veterans nationwide while also helping to provide the financial and emotional support and care our heroes need to heal and rebuild their lives," says Todd Sauey, President of Columbia ParCar.  In addition to the various stops, the teams will give presentations to teach young students about how electric vehicle technology can help conserve energy, the environment, and the economy
