NORWICH – Chenango County was abuzz with revving engines and eye-catching rides Tuesday morning as participants in Rally North America’s “Rally New England 2013” made their way through Norwich - just one scenic checkpoint of a 1,300 mile journey across the Northeast.
The Northeast Classic Car Museum in Norwich played host to more than 80 teams of two or more people taking part in the annual rally. Each year since 2009, Rally North America - a nationwide non-profit organization - has brought together automotive enthusiasts from all over the United Sates and Canada for the purpose of auto rallying while at the same time, raising money for a good cause.
This year, donations and sponsorships collected during Rally New England go directly to Camp Sunshine, a non-profit agency with the mission of providing support for children with life threatening illnesses as well as their families. Camp Sunshine is the only program in the nation whose mission is to address the impact of a life threatening illness on every member of the immediate family: the ill child, the parents, and the siblings.
