Mitchell International to Race "Lemon" in Lapping for Leukemia Fundraiser

Money Raised by Mitchell Racing Team in the 24 Hours of LeMons Endurance Race to Be Donated to Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - December 1, 2010) - Mitchell International, Inc., a leading provider of information, workflow and performance management solutions to the Property & Casualty claims and Collision Repair industries, today announced that the company will raise funds in support of its Lapping for Leukemia project by competing in the 24 Hours of LeMons, a 24 hour endurance race for cars valued at $500 or less. The Mitchell LeMons Team will race its 1979 BMW 528i at the Buttonwillow Raceway Park, outside of Bakersfield, CA, December 4-5, and is currently accepting donations at www.lappingforleukemia.com. All pledge monies collected will be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

"Mitchell is committed to our community, and this community is not only made up of our co-workers, our business partners and customers and their friends and families, but also organizations like the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society that do great and noble work for all of us," said Alex Sun, Mitchell's President and CEO. "We're very proud of the Mitchell LeMons Team for helping to raise money to fund research for this terrible disease. We encourage you to show your support as well. If you are in Southern California, join Mitchell's race team at the Buttonwillow Raceway, and if you can, please donate to the Lapping for Leukemia Project."

The Mitchell LeMons Team is raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society via a "donation per lap pledge" model, typical of walk-a-thons, and is also accepting lump sum pledges at www.lappingforleukemia.com. The team hopes to both raise funds for leukemia research as well as increase public awareness of the need to support efforts to eradicate this disease.
