Dodge Test-Drives for a Good Cause

As part of Dodge’s community outreach across the country, Dodge will be supporting breast cancer research and education at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Dallas 1/2 Marathon this weekend.

The race benefits the Susan G. Komen foundation, one of the country’s best-known health groups. Nine other charitable organizations have also partnered with the event including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and ASPCA. In addition to the race, there will be concerts and a Health & Fitness Expo. According to event organizers, the free expo will feature “the latest in running technologies, fitness apparel, health and nutrition information and interactive displays.”

Dodge has really made an effort to be a major presence at the race. They will be hosting a recovery tent at the race for runners to stretch, mingle, or rest up, and they will also be part of the Health & Fitness Expo. At the expo, they will be showing off the 2012 Durango, Journey, and Challenger, and Dodge will make a donation to charity for every test drive that happens during the expo.

I would love to be in Dallas for the race this weekend, especially considering that so many great charitable organizations are involved, and it is exciting that Dodge is so involved with the race. Good luck to all the runners, and be sure to stop by the Dodge booth to take a test drive for a good cause!

Dodge Co-Hosts Swim Clinic For Physically Challenged

Dodge is a company that loves to give back, and they are excited to announce that in April, Dodge will be co-hosting the Challenged Athletes Foundation’s Catch a Rising Star Swim Clinic.

The Catch a Rising Star Swim Clinic will be held at the Colorado Athletic Club in Denver, Colorado on April 28th, and Alan Voisard who has previously coached U.S. Paralympic Medalists will be the special guest trainer. During the clinic, swimmers will learn how to adjust their stroke cadence for higher speeds, improving their technique, building up their core strength, and how to continue training after the clinic.

The Challenged Athletes Foundation helps physically challenged individuals participate in sports activities. Some participants were born with physical impairments while others suffered a traumatic injury and are going through physical therapy. No matter where they come from, though, the Challenged Athletes Foundation gives them the chance to be physically active, achieve their goals, and make new friends, and Dodge is proud to be a part of their April swim clinics.

Dodge is looking to make some enhancements on the popular Dodge Avenger. Not content with having it remain the most affordable and power mid-size car, they want to give the Avenger some new features to really show it off. “The Dodge Avenger is one of the fastest growing mid-size cars in American, with sales up 112 percent this year,” said Reid Bigland, the President and CEO of Dodge Brand.

It will also be including other features such as a new brightwork exterior, 18 inch aluminum wheels, rear spoiler, and a dual exhaust.

“We’re building off this momentum with the introduction of the new SE V6 package, delivering a true no compromise solution for the mid-size car buyer – 283 best-in-class horsepower, 29 mpg highway, 18-inch wheels and a rear spoiler – all for just $21,495 MSRP. You get the power, the efficiency, the look and tremendous value that is unmatched in the segment.” Reid continued to say about the Dodge Avenger SE V6.
