MARTINSVILLE, Va. (WDBJ) - Local organizations are participating in the national NASCAR Day Giveathon this week.

The 75-hour event was created this year in honor of NASCAR’s 75th anniversary. NASCAR invited nonprofits around the country to participate in the online fundraising campaign.

United Way of Henry County & Martinsville has already raised around $100.

Those who donate can win prizes like a customized toy race truck, a helmet, or t shirts.

“As far as our community goes, the race track has always been a major part of this community,” said Rebecca Conter, Workplace Engagement and Donor Service Coordinator for United Way of Henry County & Martinsville. “It’s just awesome that they’re doing something that not only helps us here but helps folks nationwide.”

The fundraiser began Tuesday and goes until Friday, May 19.
