Driving for Mia's Dreams, Jeep Ride
FMC Off-Road is joining forces with The Mia Prather Memorial Foundation. Mia passed away in her sleep on March 21, 2013 from a brain aneurysm. She has two brothers Micah, and Ridge who was born this past February. Mia was a free spirited, kind hearted little girl who loved all children, especially helping those children who needed extra attention. Her parents, Adam and Kelly Prather, as well as their friends and family created The Mia Prather Memorial Foundation in an effort to keep her dreams alive.
The foundations fourth annual event Driving for Mia's Dreams Golf Tournament, is held every Memorial Day. Through Mia’s foundation, Kelly and Adam are able to reach out to local area children and families to help them obtain their dreams, no matter how big or small. They award two dance scholarships to graduating seniors from the Pickens County area. Mia loved to dance and dreamed of becoming a dancer. Other things they have been able to assist with are playground equipment for Jasper Elementary where Mia attended and her little brother Micah attends now, hospitalization and funeral costs for children, tuition for dance classes, and so much more. Kelly said, “This has been such a humbling thing for Adam and me. This isn't our money, but we all put a lot of work into each year. It feels unfair that we get to experience all the joy of putting smiles on people’s faces when there are so many people that go into making all this possible. It's a privilege that we get to be the ones who see that.” Let’s help Adam and Kelly keep putting smiles on people’s faces, and may Mia’s laughter and love live forever in our hearts!
Keeping with the theme of Driving, FMC Off-Road will be hosting a Trail Ride on Sunday, June 26. The trail ride will be limited to 50 Jeeps/Off-Road capable 4X4’s, excluding ATV’s. The registration cost will be a monetary donation of any amount. Anyone who registers and donates over $25 by June 3rd, will receive an event t-shirt. You will need to add your shirt size and any other shirts sizes you would like to purchase for other riders in the comment section of the donation page. You can pay for the extra shirts at the ride; this will just guarantee we will have your shirt size. If you register after June 3rd and would like a t-shirt, you will need to purchase it separately at the event. Sizes and quantities will be limited.
Any business that sponsors over $100 will receive your company’s logo on the back of the t-shirt, trail access, and a t-shirt. I will need the sponsor logo and money by May 12.
Shirts will be available at the event, but quantity and sizes will be limited.
As long as we live, you will live. As long as we live, you will be remembered. As long as we live, you will be loved.
