Wheelers Helps Equip Local Athletes

Marshfield, WI (OnFocus) Local athletes are enjoying new equipment this season, thanks to a partnership through Chevy Youth Baseball with Wheelers Family Auto Group.

“We’re proud to be able to offer this opportunity to local sports teams,” said Mary Jo Wheeler, owner. “It’s great to see the funds from last year’s test drive events being put to good use!”

In 2018, Wheelers joined forces with Chevrolet and the Chevy Youth Baseball program in an effort to provide new equipment, instruction opportunities as well as sponsorship dollars for local sports teams. The Chevy Youth Baseball Test Drive Fundraising Opportunity is a program by which Wheelers provided $20 on behalf of every customer that visited the test drive event and took a test drive in any one of the new Chevrolet vehicles in stock, up to a maximum of $2,000.00.

Last spring, Wheelers hosted Chevy Test Drives at each of their locations in Marshfield, Wisconsin Rapids, Abbotsford, and Medford. Funds raised from the event, hosted through General Motors Chevrolet, are part of a national campaign to equip youth sports teams with the gear they need to succeed.

“The equipment that Wheelers and Chevy provide to our youth baseball and softball programs really goes a long way,” said Justin Casperson, coach. “We’re able to keep the program affordable to the participants and provide good equipment for the kids to use for their season.”

Wheelers will host test drives again this spring to help local sports teams. Dates to be announced.
