PORTLAND -Â Maine resident, Jonathan White, owner of Back Bay Customs, and his co-driver, Paul White will be entering their custom-built 1956 Chrysler Imperial in the 2010 Fireball Run Adventurally and Race to Recover Americaâ€™s Missing Children. Assigned to â€śTeam Back Bay Customsâ€ť is three-year-old Jon â€śEvanâ€ť Stacey-Sotiriou who was last seen in Durham, Maine on Feb. 19. The team will be taking the young boyâ€™s photo and stats across the country on a 3,500-mile campaign to raise awareness and help recover the missing child.
â€śWe are excited to be competing in this yearâ€™s Fireball Run and proud to represent a missing child from our area,â€ť said Jonathan White, Back Bay Customs. The Fireball Runâ€™s Race to Recover Americaâ€™s Missing Children is the largest active recovery effort for missing and exploited children. Each team is assigned a child from their home region along with posters to disperse along the route. A decal featuring the child is affixed to the vehicle, creating a rolling milk carton. To date, this effort has aided in the recovery of 33 missing children.
Partnering with the event is the KlaasKids Foundation. One of the biggest advocates for making America safer for kids, Marc Klaas, will also participate in the rally himself – bringing his message to the streets of America while honoring the memory of his daughter, Polly Klaas.
This yearâ€™s event promises to be the most challenging, scenic and diverse experience so far. Teams will travel over 3,500 miles in 9 days, driving everything from Lamborghinis to Mustangs to the â€śTime Carâ€ť from Back to the Future. Along the way, teams solve clues and complete challenges in an attempt to earn points. In addition, there are racing challenges, the first of which will take place at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Think of it as Amazing Race meets motorsports.
The 2010 Fireball Run Adventurally starts September 23rd in Henderson, Nevada and concludes October 2nd in Galena, Illinois. The event encourages the public to come out and show their support.
