Bobby Labonte

Bobby Labonte has kicked off the holiday season in a special way. The NASCAR Hall of Famer partnered with Herbalife for a huge charitable donation in North Carolina.

On November 17, the Bobby Labonte Foundation and Herbalife teamed up to build 60 bicycles for the YWCA of Winston-Salem. They donated these new bikes to YWCA’s Best Choice Learning Center and included helmets and bike safety lessons, courtesy of Brenner Children’s Hospital.

To add to the special event, the Bobby Labonte Foundation and Herbalife donated two oversized checks for $10,000 each. Both went to YWCA’s Best Choice Learning Center, which provides “K-8 academic enrichment and need-based scholarships along with nutrition education, healthy snacks, and hot meals.”

“My foundation works in partnership with the local community and community organizations to empower parents, families, and children to build a strong foundation for their futures. Encouraging kids to live a healthy lifestyle is one way to do that,” Labonte said in a press release.

“We are so grateful for partners like Herbalife who help make our efforts possible. They were excited to pitch in to support the Best Choice Learning Center too, which is an invaluable resource for so many families in our community.”
