Powered by Jimmie Johnson Foundation

TotalCyclist MTB team powered by the Jimmie Johnson Foundation. What does that mean, powered by Jimmie Johnson Foundation ? In essence we are advocates, partners and ambassadors for the foundation. The Jimmie Johnson Foundation (JJF) focuses on providing funding for K-12 public education. To date the Jimmie Johnson Foundation has contributed more than $7.7 million to various organizations. This ties directly to one of the core principals of our team: Teaching. Everyone on the team has benefited from the generosity of others who were willing to share time and information; we are committed to exactly the same. We strive to share our expertise and experience (good and bad!) to anyone who seeks it. Additionally we all actively support local skills clinics and strive to assist anyone new to the sport as well as encourage children to take up cycling. As part of our efforts to assist JJF, a substantial portion of all sponsorship funds raised by the team are contributed to the Foundation.

As an athlete Jimmie has seen the benefits in the race car of performing endurance sports and cycling off the track. Only seems natural he would encourage others to do the same, which led to the creation of the JJF Wellness Challenge. In its current format the challenge consists of three events: 5k run, and two sprint triathlons with the proceeds from the events going to further benefit public schools. More local races, supporting local schools add in a dose of competition and a healthy purse! Everyone wins! With the 5k completed, we are rapidly coming up on the second event- Jimmie Johnson Foundation Cane Creek Sprint Triathlon on Aug. 11th, 2015. Just five days away! Before you starting thinking of reasons not to enter......No excuses! There is a spot for everyone! You can register to race here. If your not quite up to doing the whole race there is a relay class. Or if it's a recovery week, sign up to volunteer ! Don't live in the area? Jimmie will send a jet to pick you up!!  (Not true... but he might with the right donation.)  All kidding aside, if you can't get to the event you can always donate directly to the foundation or buy some gear to support JJF. If you really can't make it and none of that was enough to entice you..... this is my final offer.... buy a raffle ticket to win JJ's Chevy! (Unlike the jet transportation this is true) Only 4848 tickets available! Great odds! And if you win... they will pay the taxes! How sweet is that? I read most of the fine print (okay skimmed) and surprisingly employees of the other Home Improvement company are eligible. (Really should address that next time) Unfortunately it is limited to residents of the USA. So to all my Canadian relatives, you are out of luck.....or buy a ticket in my name and we will work something out. I promise! See you at the race!
