Team Kalitta’s Jim Oberhofer to dawn pink in October to raise money for charity



YPSILANTI, MI (September 27, 2017)  – Jim Oberhofer, Vice President of Operations, Kalitta Motorsports, has been nominated as a representative for the Real Men Wear Pink Campaign of Detroit that is put on by the American Cancer Society, an organization that has been committed to fighting cancer since 1913 through raising public awareness about this deadly disease. 

The Real Men Wear Pink campaign was founded with the goal of getting men more involved in the fight against breast cancer – the second leading cause of cancer deaths in women behind lung cancer. Through their social media networks, all of the Real Men involved in the campaign will be tasked with the goal of fundraising a minimum of $2,500 for the American Cancer Society to go towards research, prevention, and other methods of support for those who are battling breast cancer.  

As a Real Men Wear Pink representative, Jim O will be committed to wearing some form of the color pink throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.  

“I’m honored to have been nominated to be one of the 25 great men chosen as part of the Real Men Wear Pink Campaign of Detroit,” says Oberhofer. “I hope that through all of the great channels we have in NHRA Drag Racing, we can raise enough money to meet our goals and help in the fight against breast cancer and other forms of cancer.”
