Legends series driver Brandon Weaver has just signed on as a Swipe4TheKids spokesperson, and at 12 years of age, he’s got vision for his generation. Swipe4TheKids is a program that creates sustainable funding through a business's ordinary practices, and provides resources for youth sports, music, and the arts programs that are at risk of dissolution or cutbacks.
Brandon initially became interested when learning that the program helps children discover and develop their talents who lack the resources to do so. As a young race car driver, this hit close to home. “My favorite thing in life is racing. Even though I like school and do well, I couldn’t have discovered racing by just doing well in school. I’m blessed to be able to race, but there are a lot of kids who don’t have the choice. Swipe4TheKids helps the kids discover their talents, and I am happy to be a part of it.”
Brandon has accomplished a great amount in his 12 years thus far. The Bakersfield, CA native began racing with the International Karting Federation at just 6 years old. Since, he’s raced the Bandolero Series, in which he earned the title 2011 California State Champion of the Bandolero Bandit Division, and #3 in the US. In 2012, he began racing the Legends car. To date, Brandon has won more than 25 races and has 40 Top 5 finishes.
Swipe4TheKids recognized Brandon’s talent, appreciates the support in the program, and has joined the two together by signing the young driver as a spokesperson. Swipe4TheKids is proud to have Brandon Weaver on the team and part of the community.
Swipe4TheKids is a sustainable funding program for youth sports, music, and the arts programs at risk of cutbacks or total dissolution, providing children with the opportunity to participate in vital youth activities. The program raises money through a business' merchant services platform. When a customer makes an electronic payment transaction at a participating business, a portion of the merchant services fee that the business incurs goes to Swipe4TheKids. The funding directly impacts programs in the area where that company is located, such as local sports clubs, recreation centers, music programs, and others.
