Rahal to hold helmet design contest, charity auction

Graham Rahal

The Graham Rahal Foundation is hosting its third helmet design contest in partnership with Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, a non-profit organization that raises awareness and funds to fight childhood cancer.

Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation is inviting children and families involved with the organization to create a design on a pre-made helmet template with a theme of, "What Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation means to me."

Design entries may be submitted through July 11. Rahal will select five designs from the entries to be published at http://www.grfcontests.org. Fans will vote for the winning helmet design from July 14-21, and the design receiving the most votes will be featured on Rahal's helmet in the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma on Aug. 24.

The contest winner will receive a full-size helmet replica featuring the design and an autograph by Rahal. The Graham Rahal Foundation will auction the race-worn helmet on Rahal's celebrity eBay page at http://givingworks.ebay.com/graham-rahal/, with proceeds directed to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation.

Rahal's No. 15 National Guard Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing car will feature a special camouflage livery for the Pocono INDYCAR 500 fueled by Sunoco to commemorate the Fourth of July weekend and honor the more than 350,000 Army National Guard Soldiers.
