This promotion is sponsored by Ford Motor Company and hosted by Donley Ford of Galion. Ford Motor Company offers $20 per test-drive — up to 300 test-drives — to area schools and community non-profit groups thru their Drive 4 programs.

The Drive 4 UR School event for Galion High School Athletics is Saturday, Oct. 13, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Galion High School, 472 Portland Way N., Galion.

Additionally, for this particular Drive 4 UR School Event, Ford has offered that if participants choose to test-drive a second vehicle — a 2018 Ford Fusion — an additional $10 per test-drive — up to 200 — will be given to Galion High School. This allows for Galion High School Athletics to earn up to $8,000.

This promotion is offered as part of Connections Weekend 2018 and Donley Ford of Galion anticipates great participation to raise needed funds for Galion High School athletics.

Drive 4 UR School began in 2007 as a way for Ford to give back to communities across the country. The idea was simple: test-drive a Ford vehicle from a local dealership, get money for your school. The success of the school program inspired the launch of Drive 4 UR Community, allowing Ford Dealers to partner with nonprofit organizations as well. Thousands of events and $35 million in donations later, participants are still test-driving for a cause that they — and Ford — are equally passionate about
