Join Ryan Reed for the Lilly Diabetes #DriveYourHealth Track Walk

CONCORD, N.C. (May 24, 2017) – Grab your friends and family and join Roush Fenway Racing driver Ryan Reed at the Lilly Diabetes #DriveYourHealth Track Walk on Friday, May 26th from 2-4 PM.  Get an up-close look at Charlotte Motor Speedway while you walk the 1.5-mile track and help raise money for the Charlotte Chapter of the American Diabetes Association.

“I’m excited for everyone to be able to come out to Charlotte and join me for a lap around the track,” said Reed.  “Getting a look at the banking and making a lap around the 1.5-mile track is a great way to #DriveYourHealth, while also raising money for a great cause and something that I know firsthand can affect so many people.”

For every person who reaches the finish line, Lilly Diabetes will make a donation to the American Diabetes Association Charlotte Chapter.  In addition to the donation, participants will get to sign the hood and deck lid of the No. 16 Lilly Diabetes #DriveYourHealth Ford Mustang that will run at Texas in November.

For those unable to make it to Charlotte Motor Speedway to participate in the walk, you can still commit to your health.  Walk the 1.5 miles at home, join us live on Facebook at 2:00 p.m. EST on Friday, May 26 and tell us how you #DriveYourHealth.
