The Cancer Journeys Foundation Ford GT40 Program

We owe a special thanks to Mr. Michael Zarabi for donating this car to the Foundation.  IRS regulations require that we use donated vehicles like this to support our non-profit objectives. For the Cancer Journeys Foundation, this means supporting our prostate cancer awareness programs and fundraising for our cancer survivor support programs.

Thanks to the generous donated support by David Alison and the team at Just Drive, LLC in Orange, California, we are restoring the car to the specifications of the original 1966 Ford GT40 (read the Wikipedia article here – Ford GT40 history).

How The Cancer Journeys Foundation will Campaign the CJF Ford GT40

We haven’t yet decided the full range of activities for this car – we are open to suggestions – but it will include the following…

  1. Available for static display
  2. Donors – level to be determined – will be able to drive the car
  3. Fashion and advertising shoots
  4. A roundtrip trans-America rally in 2018 to support cancer awareness

Like to Drive Our GT40 Replica Car?

Our rebuild should be completed in March 2018. The car will be kept in the Los Angeles area. We’re working on a program to let donors drive the car and get a feel for what it was like driving this machine in the 60’s.
