What is the Everyone Loves Kids Charity Challenge?

The Everyone Loves Kids (E.L.K) Charity Challenge is an interactive adventure; pitting philanthropic vehicle enthusiasts against one another in a seven-day journey to give back to America’s future… it’s children. Each day, participants navigate through numerous challenges and locations testing their dedication, determination and preparation. Every challenge not only provides an opportunity for victory, but also provides a once in a lifetime experience in the unique cities that we venture through. E.L.K. showcases a vast variety of vehicles to meet each fanatic’s needs; whether you’re an admirer of high-end vehicles or prefer to stick with the classics, E.L.K. has something for you!

The Charity Challenge incorporates seven unique cities into the story, with the only known destinations being the start and finish lines. The remaining five locations are a mystery to challengers; its up to them to correctly decipher their clues and make it to the next community using all available resources. The group of teams with the most points will be given $10,000 at the end of each day for their respective children’s charities. Making a wrong turn or getting a flat tire isn’t just aggravating; during E.L.K. it’s downright detrimental to the cause.

How it works

E.L.K. participant’s fit into one of three categories; either a business leader/owner, elected official or an industry celebrity. Some of our notable challengers include: Kelly Kaminski- Pro Rodeo Champion; Clay Hensley- World Series Pitcher; Tom Souter- CNBC Personality; Wes Abendroth- International Racer; Tim Colceri- Full Metal Jacket; Doug Stanley- 2-time Emmy Award Winner and creator of Deadliest Catch; Larry Edsall- Author and creator of Classic Cars; and many others.

The E.L.K. Charity Challenge is truly a one of a kind event that brings charity, motorsports, and history to life! Whether it is scoring a record time at a world-renowned track, or literally holding history in the palm of your hand, E.L.K. participants experience an adventure like no other.
