Tri County Ford is hosting two Drive 4UR SCHOOL events this autumn in support of the Pugwash District High School and North Colchester High School.

Up to $6,000 can be raised in support of each school through the program, which sees participants test drive eligible Ford vehicles. For every test drive, Ford Canada will donate $20 to its respective school.

“We know funding for school programs is hard to come by, and we want to do our part to help make sure these programs remain available,” said Eric MacKeen, general manager at Tri County Ford, in a press release. “We’re excited to raise money for both of these schools.

The events, featuring Ford’s Next Generation lineup, will be held beginning at 9 a.m. and ending at 6 p.m. Pugwash’s event will be Sept. 28 at the Pugwash school, while drivers in Tatamagouche should mark Oct. 5 on their calendar, being held at North Colchester.

Each test drive will last between five and seven minutes. Participants must be at least 18 years old and have a valid driver’s license. Limit is one test drive per household.
