A go-kart with the same design was auctioned to none other than the 49ers Reuben Foster, who wanted a new toy for his son. The auction raised thousands of dollars to support San Francisco’s youths.
Project Wreckless opened a new garage earlier this year. The organization used to do pop-up car clinics across the city, but now they have their own space. Events like the recent drift race help continue this growth.
“Mistakes these youths made in the past do not have to influence the rest of their lives. We teach life skills that can make a big difference, like how to be professional, save money, be better citizens and give back through volunteering,” said Tori Freeman, program manager, Project Wreckless. “We had a young man who was about to be kicked out of high school, and he could have been on a path toward jail had we not been there to help. It’s a great example of the impact of having faith in and working with our young people.”
Graduates from Project Wreckless get the opportunity to work with Wreckless Racing. They become part of the pit crew, helping with car fixes, capturing photos and video and traveling with the team. Building and practicing useful skills is a priority through each step of the program.
