Harris Ford is bringing Ford Motor Company’s Drive One 4 UR School program to the Mountlake Terrace community in an effort to raise up to $6,000 for the Mountlake Terrace Sports Booster Club. For every person who takes the wheel and test-drives a new Ford vehicle at Mountlake Terrace High School on May 5, Harris Ford and Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to the MTHS SBC.The funds will directly benefit the participating athletic teams of MTHS.

“We know funding for school programs is hard to come by, and we want to do our part to help make sure these programs remain available,” said James Benjamin, sales manager at Harris Ford. “We’re excited to raise money for the MTHS SBC.”

The event, which will be held from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. will feature the many vehicles from Ford’s line-up. “Whether you are looking to test out our larger vehicles, like the Explorer or F-150, or are more interested in a smaller sedan, like the Focus, we will be able to put you behind the wheel of your favorite Ford vehicle,” said Benjamin. Dealership staff on site will be able to assist with all Ford vehicles and provide additional information about each vehicle available for test-drive.

Since the start of Ford’s Drive One 4 UR School program in 2007, more than $9 million in donations have been generated for high schools nationwide.

Participants must be 18 or older and have a valid driver’s license. There is a limit of one test-drive per household. All test-drive will last approximately 7-10 minutes.
