Danica Patrick — one of the most successful women in the history of racing — is also involved in an important cause. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Patrick debuted the No. 10 Ford Warriors in Pink Fusion race car at last weekend’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Apache Warrior 400.
Danica Patrick and Ford Warriors in Pink Program
For over two decades, the Ford Warriors in Pink program has driven awareness and action in the fight against breast cancer, while contributing $133 million to the cause. For Patrick, her involvement in the cause stems from her personal experience supporting friends who have dealt with the disease, as well as her recognition that individuals battling breast cancer need more support.
No. 10 Ford Warriors in Pink Race Car and Warrior Symbol
Along with its pink paint color, the 10 Ford Warriors in Pink race cars features a prominent warrior symbol to honor the powerful, courageous women and men engaged in the fight against breast cancer. This is reflective of the Ford Warriors in Pink program, which often utilizes symbols as a source of inspirational messaging, which helps to uplift those who exhibit strength and courage in the face of a major challenge.
Danica Patrick and Ford “More Good Days”
In addition to driving the No. 10 Ford Warriors in Pink Fusion race car, Patrick recently participated in the “More Good Days” initiative, which Ford Warriors in Pink launched back in 2015 to provide special experiences to empower people to take action and support their loved ones. Patrick surprised breast cancer patients with racing lessons at the Chicagoland Speedway on September 20, which coincided with many other special events held across the country.
