B.M.W. donated $1.00 per mile to to the foundation. The cars are traveling the country and made a stop in Albany today. Supporters say they came out just to help out the foundation.

"If we continue to do programs like this it will give them enough money to do research and other things they need to do," says supporter Terretta McCraney.

This is the 10th year for the fundraiser. It has raised about $1,000,000 each year.
