Mitchell's Lapping for Leukemia Team to Compete in 24 Hours of LeMons Race

Racing Team Driven to Raise Funds for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society While Enduring Grueling Trial for Cars Valued Under $500

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 26, 2012) - Mitchell, a leading provider of technology, connectivity and information solutions to the Property & Casualty Claims and Collision Repair industries, today announced its Lapping for Leukemia racing team, powered by the Company's charitable works program called (m)Community, is once again hitting the track for the 24 Hours of LeMons race. Mitchell team members Beau Sullivan, Lee Phillippi, David Meadow, John Foster, Michael Carteron, and Brian Bragg will compete in the grueling 24 hour trial of endurance for cars valued under $500 at the Buttonwillow Raceway Park, June 30 - July 1.

The Lapping for Leukemia racing team's goal is to complete as many laps as possible in their 1979 BMW 528i while simultaneously driving donations to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, a cause they are passionate about. Teammate John Foster's son was diagnosed with leukemia at age 2 and, as the young boy underwent painful daily chemotherapy treatments and frequent hospital stays, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society provided him with unending support.

"The 24 Hours of LeMons race is an exciting way for us to help build awareness and support for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, in honor of all the children who bravely battle these devastating cancers. We are all thrilled to be a part of this effort and appreciate any donations to the cause," said Beau Sullivan, Senior Director of User Experience for Mitchell and Lapping for Leukemia teammate.
