Pippa Mann to drive pink car for breast cancer at Indianapolis 500

Thursday May 14th, 2015

An Indiegogo.com page is raising money to support Pippa Mann's Pink Car Campaign for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast cancer awareness organization at the Indianapolis 500.

Mann will once again drive a pink car at the May 24 race to support The Pink "Get Involved" Campaign. Last year, Mann traded her traditional red helmet for a pink one adorned with Komen's Running Ribbon. It was later auctioned off by the Komen Central Indiana Affiliate.

Depending on the value of donations, Mann's Indiegogo page is offering signed posters, Susan G. Komen wristbands and koozies, t-shirts and more. The goal for this year's fundraising is $50,000, more than double last year's total of just under $20,000.

Mann finished 24th at last year's Indianapolis 500, the third of her career.
