Team One Cure

Every once in a great while, a project comes along that cannot be ignored. Tony, the Board & the staff of our foundation had the chance to meet the scientists and veterinarians from the Colorado State University Flint Animal Cancer Center. The center houses the world’s largest group of scientists studying and treating naturally occurring cancer in pets. And, the Center has trained more surgical, medical and radiation oncologists than any other veterinary institution.

We were simply “wowed”, for lack of a better word, with their innovative approach to discovering treatments for cancer in pets that translate directly to cancer treatments for people. The overall concept is “Comparative Oncology” which has gained traction in the past decade and is currently offering amazing treatments for people and pets alike. There are several leading institutions throughout the U.S. working alongside CSU Flint Animal Cancer Center. And, it fits perfectly with the mission of Tony’s foundation!

Tony and his foundation came away wanting to help spread the word about the amazing work being done to battle cancer – a disease that impacts virtually everyone. Borrowing the Flint Animal Cancer Center’s own branding of “One Cure”, our foundation has established Team One Cure as a multi-faceted program with two primary goals: (1) Raise awareness of the availability and potential of comparative oncology; and (2) raise funds to find cures for cancer in both people and pets.

Team One Cure – Full Speed Ahead

Cancer directly or indirectly impacts everyone. We each have a family member, a friend, a colleague, a neighbor, a pet or someone special in our lives who has been diagnosed with cancer. And, whether in remission, having beaten the disease, currently undergoing treatment or having lost the battle, we all seek a way to honor or memorialize these brave people and pets.

Throughout 2017, Team One Cure will offer a variety of ways to engage people everywhere wanting to stand up against cancer. During March, the “Faces of Team One Cure” campaign will launch providing an innovative way to honor people and pets. Fast forward to the Month of May at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway as “racing for a cure” takes on an entirely new meaning. Team One Cure will be emblazoned on the Schmidt Peterson Motorsports (SPM) No. 77 entry with veteran racer, JAY HOWARD, piloting the IndyCar.

Tony Stewart is, of course, about racing in all its forms. So, it’s only reasonable to take Team One Cure into the NASCAR arena. This summer, Team One Cure will be on the hood of Danica Patrick’s No. 10 Ford Fusion. Danica, like Tony and Jay, is a big softie for animals and so helping promote “one cure” through comparative oncology benefitting people and pets was a natural choice.

Additional on-track adventure arrives late summer with a single-day, multiple location karting competition. With 48 in-door karting tracks across the United States, everyone will have a chance to combine the need-for-speed with raising funds for cancer research and programs.

Plans are in the works to involved Eldora Speedway and Tony Stewart Racing so check our social media channels to catch the latest updates.

Flip It For Good – Knoxville

Tony Stewart brings his Flip It For Good event to the fans during the 57th Annual 5-Hour Energy Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey’s General Stores. First introduced July 2016 at Stewart’s Eldora Speedway, the Flip It For Good competition is a large game of the perennial favorite – heads or tails?

More than 1,320 fans participated at Eldora Speedway setting a Guinness World Record. The challenge is extended to Knoxville Nationals fans…can we have at least 1,400 folks of all ages join the fun on Friday, August 11 on the grounds of Knoxville Raceway? The game starts promptly at 12:00 noon Central time and will conclude no later than 1:30 with one man – or woman – or child – standing victorious! Tony is once again in charge of flipping the oversized coin and we’ll have someone spotting him just to keep everything on the up and up! The last person standing (winner) receives a Team One Cure canvas bag filled with goodies including an autographed item from Tony and a keepsake photograph with Tony.

Race fans of all ages are invited to participate! Each $10.00 donation includes a Flip It For Good event bandana, entry into the competition and an access code to upload a free photograph of a special person or pet impacted by cancer into the “Faces of Team One Cure” online photo mosaic.
