For the second year, British racing driver Pippa Mann has teamed up with Susan G. Komen for the Indianapolis 500 in a campaign to raise awareness and funds for Komen throughout the month of May. Returning to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with Dale Coyne Racing, Mann is driving the No. 63 car in her fourth Indy 500 appearance on Sunday, May 24. From Opening Day at IMS through Race Day, Mann’s car, helmet, firesuit and more will be turned pink, in an effort to raise awareness of breast cancer. In addition, Mann has partnered with Indiegogo to raise funds for Komen, with a goal of $50,000, through a campaign that allows fans to make a donation and get exclusive perks in exchange. At least 70 percent or more of all contributions will be donated to Komen - the remaining funds will be used to cover hard costs associated with the campaign.
