GoPro Motorplex’s 5th Annual Food Drive benefiting the Mooresville Soup Kitchen yielded 7,260 pounds of canned foods thanks to the generosity of their customers.

To encourage participation in their annual Food Drive, GoPro Motorplex offers a $10 discount off rental race purchases at thee Mooresville karting facility when customers donate five canned food items to benefit the Mooresville Soup Kitchen between Nov. 1 and Nov. 19.

As a race track where a competitive spirit goes hand-in-hand with their business model, GoPro Motorplex always aims to “out-do” the previous year’s donation totals. In 2016, GoPro Motorplex donated 5,448 pounds, surpassing that number by over 1,800 pounds this year and setting the bar that much higher for next year.

“We certainly have a competitive spirit here and we are proud to break our donation record this year, but we always like to remember the much bigger goal in helping to provide for those in need,” said GoPro Motorplex President Dan Kraus. “Our Food Drive is something we look forward to offering each year and we continue to be impressed and humbled by the generosity of our customers. It’s a great way for us to show our appreciation for them by offering a discount all while supporting the great work the Mooresville Soup Kitchen does locally in our community.”

GoPro Motorplex supports the Mooresville Soup Kitchen’s mission of providing nourishing meals and encouragement to those in need in several ways throughout the year. The Mooresville Soup Kitchen is the first stop for many who are in need and looking for direction. The nonprofit serves over 4,000 meals monthly from its location in downtown Mooresville and provides Emergency Food Boxes and other resources as needed.

GoPro Motorplex encourages the continued support of the Mooresville Soup Kitchen’s efforts year-round. For a list of the immediate needs of the Mooresville Soup Kitchen, please visit
