Events, Schools

MARIETTA, GA -- Ford Motor Company and Team Ford of Marietta are partnering to help raise money in support of Walton High School as part of Ford's Drive One 4 UR School program.

Members of the local Marietta community will have the opportunity to raise up to $6,000 for the Auto Technology program by test driving a Ford vehicle at Walton High School (1590 Bill Murdock Road, Marietta, 30062) on Saturday, Oct. 2 from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. For every person who test drives a 2011 Taurus, Fusion Hybrid or Sport, Mustang or Fiesta, Team Ford of Marietta will donate $20 to the school's program.

"We're excited to help raise money for Walton High School and, at the same time, introduce parents, teenagers and other drivers to the high quality lineup and innovative safe technologies," said Carl Yarber at Team Ford of Marietta. "We know it is important that students continue to have opportunities to take automotive classes, and that's why, over the past two years, it has been a privilege to help support these important programs."

The test driving will take place at the main entrance of Walton High School. Participants must be 18 or older and have a valid driver's license. There is a limit of one test drive per household.

Since the start of Ford's Drive One 4 UR School program in 2007, over 173,000 people have helped raise more than $3.3 million for nearly 1,000 high schools across the country. Locally, Team Ford of Marietta has participated in the program for two years and raised almost $4,000 for local high schools.
