PardeeCamp Boggy Creek – A Proud Charity of IMSA

Camp Boggy Creek is honored to be a Proud Charity of the International Motor Sports Association. IMSA is the premiere sanctioning body for sports car racing in North America with the TUDOR United Sports-Car Championship and the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge. Additionally it sanctions Cooper Tire Prototype Lites, Ferrari Challenge, Lamborghini Super Trofeo and Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge in the United States and Canada.

Our association with sports car racing dates back to 2000 and since that time nearly $2 million has been donated to Camp by drivers, team owners, sponsors, race officials, fans and IMSA employees. Over 500 have visited Camp on our annual IMSA Day to see firsthand our mission to serve seriously ill children in Florida. The winning drivers at each race receive their own checkered flag Boggy Bears made especially for them by a team of seamstresses who also makes them for our campers. Additionally, our IMSA friends will join us this fall as family pals for the Epilepsy Family Retreat weekend October 24-26, 2014.

Camp Boggy Creek founder, Paul Newman, raced competitively in this series for many years and enjoyed his time at the tracks nearly as much as time at Camp. We are grateful that his racing legacy and camp legacy continue to be linked and thank IMSA for its ongoing commitment to Camp Boggy Creek.
