Thompson, through a partnership with the national nonprofit, Friends of the Children, implemented the program here in 2017 to create additional pathways that lead toward economic mobility for children most at-risk in Charlotte.  The program provides children with a long-term, professional mentor called a “Friend” for 12 ½ years – no matter what.

Thank you for supporting Friends of the Children Charlotte.  When you donate today, you aren’t just supporting your favorite rider at the event, you’re standing with the children that are most at-risk in Charlotte.  Your support is vital to ensuring that the children in the program continue to receive professional mentorship that will help them break the chains of generational poverty.  Please stand with us in supporting this important cause.

On behalf of the children and the families that Thompson serves, we'd like to say thank you.
