Bill Colwell Ford will host their 11th Annual Drive 4 UR School event on Monday, September 9th, from 11:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. at their dealership in Hudson.

The "Drive 4 UR School" program started in 2007 and is a fun, engaging way to help schools raise money to support their sports and extracurricular activities. Ford and Ford Dealerships, like Bill Colwell Ford, partner with a local high school to conduct a test-drive fundraising event. For every valid test-drive completed, Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to the participating high school, up to $6,000. So, the more people who test-drive a Ford vehicle at the event, the more money can be raised. This year attendees can save time and pre-register for the event by clicking here
