Since moving to High Point, N.C. last year, and after awarding four grants from his foundation last fall,
Bobby Labonte is excited to announce this opportunity. “We really want to continue to reach out to the Triad community and give non-profit organizations that support families an opportunity to apply for a grant,” said Bobby Labonte. “Last year was the first time that we awarded grants through this process, and I think it was as rewarding for us as it was for the organizations that received them. As residents of High Point, we want to continue to focus our efforts on helping the surrounding communities. We encourage organizations to apply, and I’m looking forward to aiding the local area through our Foundation. We are thankful for the help the High Point Community Foundation provided in creating our grant process. They showed us the ropes of how to create a process like this and it is really inspiring to see the response from the community.”

All rewarded applicants are required to support the foundation’s cycling event on September 8th benefiting the Bobby Labonte Foundation by providing volunteers on Saturday, September 8. Now in High Point, the event’s organizers anticipate 400-1000 cyclists will participate in 2018.
