Chevrolet Fireball Run brings search for missing children to North Charleston

Chevrolet Fireball Run Brings Search for Missing Children to North Charleston
The largest active recovery effort for missing and exploited children in the country arrived in North Charleston, SC as part of the Fireball Run’s Race to Recover America’s Missing Children.

The 2011 Chevrolet Fireball Run, themed “Southern Excursion” includes over 40 teams competing in a 2,500 mile, eight day adventure.  Each team of the race is assigned a child from their home region along with thousands of posters to distribute along the route. A decal featuring the child is affixed to the vehicle, creating a rolling milk carton. To date, the effort has assisted in the recovery of 36 missing children.

The teams drive a fleet of exotic vehicles, which includes an Angel-1, a specially designed 2011 Chevrolet Camaro dedicated to the more than 1,000 first responders who lost their lives on 9/11 and since Sept. 11. The fleet also includes famous vehicles featured in movies and TV series.
