Corey LaJoie is forgoing receiving a month’s salary from Go Fas Racing in order to make a difference.
The Cup Series driver announced on social media Wednesday that he’ll go without being paid for a month in order to promote the charity Samaritan’s Feet this weekend at Watkins Glen International (3 p.m. ET Sunday on NBCSN). It is an organization founded in 2003 to provide shoes to children and individuals in need.
Anyone who makes a donation of any amount to Samaritan’s Feet through LaJoie’s Hope Givers page between now and Sunday will have their names personally written on the No. 32 Ford by LaJoie.
“There is absolutely no better fit being that my longtime racing nickname is ‘SuperShoe,’ LaJoie said in a press release. “Now being a ‘SuperShoe’ is being a part of something bigger than myself to bring the gift of a new pair of shoes.”
The organization has distributed seven million pairs of shoes in 108 countries and more than 389 U.S. cities.
