This Just In: “MINI Takes the States 2018” Shifts into Gear

FEED - MotorWeek - Tue, 07/17/2018 - 1:00pm
MINI TAKES THE STATES 2018 (MTTS), a charitable road rally for MINI owners hosted by MINI USA, kicked off this past weekend from two separate locations on opposite sides of the country. Over the ensuing five days, thousands of MINI owners will #DriveForMore to help raise money for charity partner Feeding America. The two rally routes, each with more than 800 participants, started in Orlando, Fla., and Portland, Ore., on Saturday, July 14, and will meet in the middle at Keystone Resort in Keystone, Colo., on July 20 for a weekend celebration of everything MINI. The bi-annual trek will cover more than 5,000 miles in total, traveling across America on state and county roads, stopping in 15 cities along the way. In 2016, MINI owners completed a 14-day, 4,397 mile adventure raising enough money to provide more than one million meals for families in need through Feeding America. This year’s goal is to raise enough money to provide more than 2 million meals. A portion of each MTTS participant’s registration fee is donated to Feeding America®, and MINI will collect food donations onsite each morning.
