We are in business for a purpose beyond making the best race products available, delighting our clients or turning a profit. While all of those are important, we want to create a legacy bigger than us, using profits from the Three Tenths Race Products business to fund our non-profit, For the Father™ , serving the local community and beyond, by addressing "fatherlessness" which statistics show, is one of the root causes of societal issues such as poverty, drug abuse, crime, teen pregnancy, suicide and hopelessness.
We believe Motorsport can be an effective "vehicle" to attack the problem of fatherlessness. This sport provides regular opportunities for father figures and children to interact together, working side by side while teaching young adults valuable life skills about preparedness, accountability, teamwork and persistence. For young adults without a father figure in their lives, it creates opportunities for role modeling healthy, positive manhood. It enables local leaders from business, church, government and non-profit organizations to build relationships and trust with local youth, teaching them valuable life skills while using positive male role models to mentor healthy manhood. This lack of healthy male role modeling has resulted in the following staggering statistics:
- 1 in 4 children live without a biological, step or adoptive father in the home
- Fatherless homes have a 4x greater risk of poverty
- Fatherless homes are 7x more likely to have teen pregnancies
- Children without a father are more likely to commit a crime and go to prison
- They are 2x more likely to drop out of high school
Our goal is to work with young adults, getting them off the streets and onto the track, creating opportunities to learn new life skills, providing mentoring while building strong character values.
