GRACIN RAZ CHALLENGES DRIVERS – Creates the Get UP! Driver’s Program
In March 2013, Gracin was inspired by the story of his weight training coach after learning about the challenges his family was experiencing supporting their young son facing CP. As a result, Gracin turned to his racing to make a difference and committed to donating 100% of his first, professional race earnings to the Watts Family, which he delivered on one month later. By the end of Gracin’s 2013 season, he had donated close to $1000 to two families in an effort to lift their hearts.
In 2014, Gracin raced for five children and donated close to $1500. He also created the Get UP! Driver’s Program, where three of his closest friends from the Northwest (Tristan Haider, Chance Crum and Alex Peck) committed to lifting hearts through their respective race programs.
