Although there is a smattering of local teams gathering and racing, this team in particular has a very positive message and interesting approach to working on their soap box car (and I'm not just saying that because I've done some consulting for the Atlanta Mission - full disclosure).
BeRemedy, a local organization that uses social media to connect those in need with those in their community who can help has partnered with the Atlanta Mission, a non-for-profit that has been transforming lives who face homelessness since 1938. BeRemedy is working with some of the men at Atlanta Mission's Potter's House, which offers a long-term residential discipleship program to more than 180 chemically addicted men. Located on a 550+ acre farm near Athens, Georgia, The Potter’s House offers therapeutic and vocational programming, providing services that include GED training, computer literacy, and job training. These men have been helping with the construction of the BeRemedy Red Bull Soap Box car. See the videos below for the full story - please share this story, and come out and cheer for Team BeRemedy/Atlanta Mission this Saturday!
