Starting with the 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, AARP and AARP Foundation turned to Hendrick Motorsports’ No. 24 Chevrolet and four-time Cup champion driver Jeff Gordon to help build awareness for its initiatives to address the cause of older adult hunger. With Jeff on board, our campaign became Drive to End Hunger and we started reaching race fans and others, by the millions. This gallery vividly shows how AARP and AARP Foundation have promoted this urgent cause, and how leading corporations have joined us in the effort.
