Drive 4 UR Community!



The Bedford Cancer Foundation is very pleased to announce that it will be partnering with NEWTON Ford South, Shelbyville, Tenn. as a part of Ford Motor Company's DRIVE 4 UR COMMUNITY event.

This is an event that will help raise up to $6000 for the Bedford Cancer Foundation. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) local county based organization that helps Bedford County residents who have cancer and need financial assistance due to having cancer.

The DRIVE 4 UR COMMUNITY event will take place during the Walking For Cancer Horse Show on Saturday, April 22, 2017 at Champions  Arena on The Celebration grounds. For every person who participates this one day, Ford Motor Company and NEWTON Ford South will donate $20, up to a total of $6,000 to The Bedford Cancer Foundation. This event has been a tremendous success the past two years and has helped the Foundation immensely which in turn has helped cancer patients in Bedford County.

This is a no-pressure event.  Come by, view the vehicles, sit in one or several, test drive the vehicles which NEWTON Ford South will have on site. By participating, you will raise funds for this worthy cause.

The vehicles and registration desk will be located just inside the show grounds starting at 3:00 pm and will be there until approximately 6:00 pm. Participants must be 18 or older and have a valid driver's license and insurance. Limit one per test drive per household. NEWTON Ford South representatives will be there and avaliable to assist and answer any questions.

This is a wonderful opportunity to view and drive beautiful new Ford cars and trucks and to help a local cancer foundation and local cancer patients.
