The No. 27 "Happy Mother's Day" Rite Aid Ford Fusion
DARLINGTON, S.C., May 5, 2008 – Huggies and Pull-Ups brands, along with Rite Aid Pharmacy, are delivering a special “thank you” to all moms this Mother’s Day weekend. Huggies and Pull-Ups brands will be presenting the Women’s Auxiliary of Motorsports with a $10,000 check at Darlington Raceway during the NASCAR race weekend to aid the organization’s commitment to enriching the lives of women, children, and families. In addition to the donation, the Kimberly-Clark sponsored No. 27 Ford Fusion will honor all moms by featuring a special paint scheme of the Huggies, Pull-Ups and Rite Aid brands.

Cindi Coleman, mother of NASCAR Nationwide Series No. 27 driver Brad Coleman, and Ann Schrader, Women’s Auxiliary of Motorsports board member and wife of NASCAR driver Ken Schrader, will be joined by Rite Aid representatives Julie Leonard and Lori Camp Rogan to present the $10,000 check. The donation will benefit Children’s Chance, a nonprofit organization based in Columbia, S.C. that provides non-medical resources for South Carolina families who have children facing cancer.

“As ‘Mom’s No. 1 Fans,’ Huggies and Pull-Ups brands are pleased to make this donation to support not only the NASCAR community, but families in the Carolina region that will benefit from our support,” said Chris Bofinger, Consumer Promotion Manager for Kimberly-Clark’s Baby & Child Care brands. “We also have put together a special gift for moms in the region – a Mother’s Day value booklet with $15 worth of savings – that will be available in all Rite Aid stores in North Carolina and South Carolina during Mother’s Day week.” In addition, shoppers will find an offer for 20 FREE Photo Prints and a Pharmacy Transfer Gift Card offer.

Mother’s Day is very special to Cindi Coleman and she values the time she spends with her family and especially the quality time with her children.

“Family time is very important to the Coleman family,” Coleman said about her family, which includes husband Brandon, sons Brandon III and Brad, and daughter Brooke. “Going to some of Brad’s races, and traveling to see Brandon III and Brooke in support of all of their endeavors has given me the opportunity to share special moments with each of them, moments that I will cherish forever as a mother. I know all moms share those special moments with their children, which is why I am honored to be a part of the celebration with the Rite Aid, Huggies and Pull-Ups brands.”

Ann Schrader shares those special moments with her husband and children, but the dedicated wife and mother has also been able to remain very active in numerous community activities. She currently serves as an officer on the board for the Women’s Auxiliary of Motorsports.

“Over the past 10 years as a board member with the Women’s Auxiliary of Motorsports, and traveling with my own family, I have witnessed families facing many challenges,” Schrader said.

“The Women’s Auxiliary of Motorsports is so grateful to have Huggies and Pull-Ups brands make a charitable donation that will help women, children, and families through those tough times.”

These leading brands understand that with their important responsibilities, not all mothers will be able to make it to the NASCAR Nationwide Series Diamond Hill Plywood 200 at Darlington Raceway on Friday, May 9. But, they can still take part of the Mother’s Day celebration at Rite Aid stores throughout North Carolina and South Carolina.

The No. 27 Rite Aid Ford Fusion also will make special appearances at select Rite Aid stores in the Carolinas, offering fans an up-close and personal look at one of Brad Coleman’s race cars.
