Tone up for Tune Ups

Jim Wojciechowski created a fundraiser for an unusual cause as his project in Landmark Education’s Self-Expression and Leadership Program: raising money to repair the cars of those who couldn’t afford to. This past spring, he created an event titled Tone Up for Tune Ups, a 5k run that combined his love of physical fitness with his interest in cars and his desire to help people hurting in today’s economy.

Wojciechowski notes that a place people who are living paycheck to paycheck fall into a downward spiral is with car repairs – they don’t have the available cash to pay for a sudden repair, and then they can’t get to work or take care of their family. Read more about the project at candgnews.
