DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- The Jimmie Johnson Foundation has created a "Wellness Challenge" to promote better health.
Johnson announced the inaugural challenge Friday, scheduling four races to encourage individuals and corporations to prioritize health, wellness and teambuilding.
Johnson says "prioritizing health and setting athletic goals for myself has helped me both personally and professionally."
The challenge consists of four events based in the Charlotte, N.C., area:
--A 5K run April 27 in Huntersville.
--A 5K run and multi-distance bike ride July 12 in Mooresville.
--A triathlon Aug. 19 in Waxhaw.
--A triathlon Sept. 7 in Davidson.
The events will raise money for public schools. The six-time NASCAR champion and his wife, Chandra, have donated more than $3.1 million through the foundation. The money goes to schools in their hometowns of El Cajon, Calif., and Muskogee, Okla., as well as Charlotte, where the Johnsons live.
