COLUMBIA, Mo. (March 1, 2023) – In honor of Co-Owner Travis Kelce’s 2023 Super Bowl run with the Kansas City Chiefs, Club Car Wash organized a fundraiser to benefit the Eighty-Seven and Running organization. Founded by Kelce in 2015, Eighty-Seven and Running helps underserved youth on their journey to become productive citizens by mentoring and motivating them to explore and develop their abilities while learning critical life skills.
For every new Club Car Wash membership purchased between February 4 and February 12, the company made a donation to Eighty-Seven and Running. With the help of new and existing members, the funds raised to benefit the organization totaled $42,301.
Club Car Wash operates more than 120 locations throughout the Central United States, and has recently expanded into the state of Wisconsin. The company opened six new locations in the month of February, including sites in Arkansas, Texas and Missouri. Club Car Wash plans to continue its expansion into Colorado and Tennessee in 2023.
Kelce joined the company as co-owner in April of 2021, and has made three appearances in the Super Bowl as a tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs.
Club Car Wash is excited to partner with Eighty-Seven and Running and to help empower disadvantaged youth through this and other fundraising initiatives.
“Giving back to the community is very important to us as a family and as a business,” said Rollie Bartels, CEO and Owner of Club Car Wash. “We are proud to support Eighty-Seven and Running and to help provide the opportunity for our youth to cultivate their talents, learn and grow.”
“I am so grateful to Club Car Wash for the ongoing support of the Eighty-Seven and Running organization and I am excited about the opportunities that this fundraiser will provide for the foundation,” said Travis Kelce, tight end of the Kansas City Chiefs and two-time Super Bowl Champion. “Each dollar raised from this campaign will go directly towards initiatives that will provide kids in the community with resources and opportunities to reach their full potential.”
Club Car Wash prioritizes its charitable partners, as has raised over $1 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals through its Ten Dollar Tuesday promotion. In the month of February, Club Car Wash raised $58,460 for Children’s Miracle Network, and an additional $51,243.35 for local organizations, including Eighty-Seven and Running through grand opening and other fundraisers.
