Winning to End Finning - The Finathon Super Rally

Community Spotlights

Jarret Voorhies, a 15 year old scuba diver and race car driver has gone the distance to raise awareness for shark protection and taken Project AWARE’s Finathon into overdrive. He wanted to dig deep to share his passion for ocean protection but combine his racing pursuits, creating the super rally that he calls Winning to End Finning.

The go-karts and helmets were provided on July 13, 2014 at Pole Position Raceway in Frisco, Texas where 49 drivers raced to support shark protection.

In the lead up to the race, Jarret hit the streets and spoke to hundreds of people and businesses to raise awareness for shark protection and gain support of his upcoming event. Through online fundraising, the racing fees, an event raffle and silent auction, Winning to End Finning raised $2,165 for Project AWARE.

“I'm so happy with the way the event turned out, everyone was happy and I was able to raise awareness on this issue and give a better appreciation for what Project AWARE does.”, Jarret beamed about the event.

Jarret’s teammates are already looking forward to jumpstarting next year’s event!

Congratulations Jarret and thank you to all of the supporters of Winning to End Finning.
