Nashville Dog Rescue Charity Revved Up by Newgarden’s Gift

Some of Josef Newgarden’s biggest fans in Nashville – on two and four legs – will pay extra attention to his race this Sunday in the Big Machine Music Grand Prix. Newgarden’s charities are Wags & Walks Nashville and the SeriousFun Children’s Network, which each received a $250,000 donation in Newgarden’s name. Newgarden also has earned $10,000 from PeopleReady for each of his four race wins this season, with half going to the team and the other half split between his two charities. Newgarden’s donation was the largest single donation that Wags & Walks has received out of either location, Wags & Walks Nashville Executive Director Kathryn Hurley said. Newgarden and his wife, Ashley, It was received a life-changing gift of their own through adoption with Wags & Walks – their dog Axel, a 30-pound mutt. With this donation, Wags & Walks will be able to do even more. Now, Wags & Walks hosts team events to watch Newgarden’s races and cheer him. Now, in just the three years since it opened, Wags & Walks Nashville has rescued 2,200 dogs. This PeopleReady Force for Good Challenge donation and continued support from the Newgardens and the Nashville community will boost Wags & Walks to help even more.
