Helping all Kids to “Cross the Finish Line”

The Check­ered Flag Run Foun­da­tion is high­light­ing and help­ing ini­tia­tives that help cre­ate our future lead­ers. We are focused on uti­liz­ing resources and giv­ing to dif­fer­ent char­i­ta­ble pro­grams so all chil­dren can be suc­cess­ful. Being able to set the tone we think this is what the kids want and the com­mu­ni­ty wants. We want all kids to “cross the fin­ish line”.


Alan M Pow­ell on Check­ered Flag Run Foun­da­tion

One of the things we want to be known for is being an ambas­sador in the com­mu­ni­ty for get­ting things done. So many times in our com­mu­ni­ty, we’re allowed these foun­da­tions. Every­body is pret­ty much tar­get­ed on who they’re try­ing to help.
Our mis­sion is to help every­body. We want every kid to be suc­cess­ful and cross the fin­ish line. We’re in try­ing times in Amer­i­ca, now, so one of the main things for us is to adopt a great atti­tude to make sure these kids are our future lead­ers.
Our first ini­tia­tive is the Phoenix Tools 4 School. Our sec­ond ini­tia­tive is Dri­ve Your Mind. Then, we have a Rac­ing to the Top schol­ar­ship pro­gram.
It’s through ini­tia­tives like that that we can set a pos­i­tive tone to cre­ate future lead­ers in our com­mu­ni­ty. We put these ini­tia­tives, all these dif­fer­ent expe­ri­ences, because we think these are things that the kids like. These are things that the com­mu­ni­ty likes. These are things they want to embrace.
We can take all those attrib­ut­es and all those resources and put them back into the chil­dren. My ulti­mate goal is cre­ate a resource for chil­dren so they can be suc­cess­ful. I feel if they’re suc­cess­ful, each kid will get a chance to cross the fin­ish line.
