26% of Americans struggle with mental illness, and nearly 50% of those struggling commit suicide. People who have mental illnesses not only struggle with the symptoms and disabilities of the disease but also the prejudice and stereotypes that result from misconceptions about mental illness. This public stigma can turn into a personal stigma, inhibiting these individuals from seeking the help they need.

Help us “Brake The Stigma“. Come out and visit us at the Brake the Stigma Car Show, and help support PTSD awareness and recovery.
We are hosting a car show in conjunction with Cars4Awareness, the Seven Cities Camaro Club (7CCC), and the Liberty Gals USA. This car show is one of many put on by Cars4Awareness, a nonprofit that provides advocacy and support programs for those who struggle with mental illness, such as PTSD. We encourage everyone to come out and participate in our charity car show to crush the stigma against mental illness ultimately.
The show will be held this Saturday, April 30, at our Norfolk location at 6352 East Virginia Beach Boulevard. It starts at 9 AM and runs through 3 PM. Spectators get in for free and can enjoy the 50/50 Raffle, the photoshoot giveaway, and the KJ Grillz food truck. If you want to enter your car into the competition, registration ends at 11 and costs $25 the day of the show. Click here to preregister for $20. Awards will be Best Modern (1990-Present), Best Classic (1900-1989), Top 20 Builds, Cars4Awareness Pick, Performance Collision Center Pick, 7CCC Pick, and Liberty Gals Pick. Check here to view Event!
