Pirelli World Challenge: Tim Mincey Sr. Races for Testicular Cancer

This past weekend, Tim Mincey, Sr. raced for us in the Pirelli World Challenge at Circuit of The Americas! Tim’s youngest daughter, Samantha, always wanted to see her dad race at the pro level. Not only did he achieve that goal, but he took it a step further by teaming up with us to raise awareness and education of Testicular Cancer, a disease he lost his close friend Stanley to. Through his entry in the TCB series, we were able to set up our tent and hand out education materials to those at the event, who fit perfectly with our demographic. Tim also got to park his #4 Go Nuts race car next to the tent for a photo op that attracted a lot of attention and fans. Thanks so much Tim!

Winter on the Rocks 2015 Wrap Up

The TCF team is back from Colorado and we had a great time! The Winter on the Rocks concert was a lot of fun and we got to spread awareness of Testicular Cancer to thousands of people as the official charity partner. We also had a brand new tent set up and got to hand out education materials and wristbands. Many people passing by really enjoyed our message and learned a lot about this disease. The high point of this event was during Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley 's set where we dropped a hundred inflatable balls with our logo into the crowd! The audience immediately began throwing and bouncing them up so we could tell they enjoyed them very much. Overall, it was an amazing weekend and we thank Icelantic Skis for giving us this opportunity.
