RAACE Foundation Website Gets Horsepower Boost
 

FOREST HILL, MD – The largest and greatest informational instrument in the toolbox of The RAACE Foundation is finally ready. The non-profit organization dedicated to the elimination of child sexual abuse by raising public awareness, has launched its newly redesigned and expanded Web site. By visiting www.raace.org, you can find helpful tools for prevention and discover information about the realities of child sexual abuse.

 

“With the understanding that raising public awareness is the best way to eliminate the epidemic of child sexual abuse, we’ve worked with our designers for eight months to create a site that really does justice to our mission to help the public eliminate child sexual abuse,” shares founder Ken Smith.

 

Child sexual abuse facts are hard to believe, but The RAACE Foundation wants to make sure the public understands just how prevalent, but hidden, this abuse truly is. The Knowledge Center is a fact packed learning source full of figures and statistics, prevention and detection tips, hotlines for reporting suspected abuse, and links to Web sites that offer legal information about child sexual abuse. Every parent will want to check out the recommended books for prevention and healing for children, teens and adults located there.

 

Facts and figures can be chilling, but five racers from five different series are out spreading good news about the fight against child sexual abuse. As the leaders in the Race Against Abuse of Children Everywhere, The RAACE Foundation Family of Drivers have donated their time and their vehicles to educating the public about child sexual abuse. After reading the stories of these drivers and the reasons they joined with The RAACE Foundation, visitors to the Web site will find inspiration among the sad stories that so often go along with the topic of child sexual abuse. Stevie Smith, a World of Outlaws 410 Sprint veteran; Sportsman Modified racer Kyle Weiss; 9-year-old Tru Atkins and his Box Stop Outlaw Kart; Darryl Shoff, IMSA Lite Master’s Class L1 driver; and the newest Family member, Douglas Horne, on a Nitro Pro Fuel Harley-Davidson, all  spread awareness about child sexual abuse both on and off the track. The work they do is furthered by the information their fans find when they visit The RAACE Foundation Web site.

 

Other racers and fans across the nation who are dedicated to helping The RAACE Foundation Family of Drivers to its mission to eliminate child sexual abuse in their communities can now join TeamRAACE online. TeamRAACE members are dedicated to the elimination of child sexual abuse and are not only willing to show off the RAACE oval, but want to get out and promote The RAACE Foundation’s mission of eliminating the epidemic of child sexual abuse by raising public awareness. They are the power behind the vision.

 

“We’ve been working for almost 4 years now to educate the public about child sexual abuse, and we have seen progress on a lot of fronts. The expansion of the TeamRAACE program and the content on the new Web site are going to be instrumental in helping to bring together communities to keep kids safe,” says RAACE Foundation Family of Drivers member and 410 Sprint racer Stevie Smith.

 

So go ahead, check out the new look, learn how to protect your children from the dangers of child sexual abuse and help The RAACE Foundation Race Against Abuse of Children Everywhere.
