Recently the ongoing efforts of The JEG’S Foundation’s “Racing for Cancer Research” efforts received recognition from the NHRA (National Hot Rod Association). Headquartered in Glendora, Calif., the NHRA is the primary sanctioning body for the sport of drag racing in the United States. It presents 23 national events through its NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series. The NHRA has 80,000 members and 140 member tracks.

The JEG’S Foundation is one the four charities the NHRA recognizes as a “NHRA In The Community charity”. A special section can be found on and in the pages of the sanctioning bodies weekly magazine National Dragster.

“The NHRA and the entire racing community have been extremely supportive of our efforts both on and off the track to increase awareness of cancer research and early detection,” explained spokesperson Scott Woodruff. “It is exciting to see the overwhelming response for the things we are doing as a family, business and race team. We are helping to save lives and that makes you feel pretty good inside.”

Racing for Cancer Research efforts use the highly powerful stage of NHRA Drag Racing to build awareness and breakdown barriers to increase prevention and early detection. Reaching out both on and off the track, the Coughlin family is leading the charge for cancer research. 100% off all money raised goes directly to cancer research.
