Kangaroo Express participates in campaign to support Victory Junction

The Kangaroo Express service station in Franklin is once again leaping to the challenge of raising money for Victory Junction. Through Tuesday, April 7, customers are invited to donate a dollar or more to this camp for “serious fun.” Located in Randleman, North Carolina, Victory Junction is the year-round campground for children with serious illnesses or chronic medical conditions.
Kyle and Pattie Petty, the renowned race car driver and his wife, established the facility in 2004 to honor their son, Adam. The goal of the free camp is to provide both fun and a positive experience to the children in a suitable environment.
This year’s goal throughout the company is $300,000, according to Nicole Connor, corporate relations officer for the company. She said that $2.5 million to $3 million has been raised since the campaign was started seven years ago.
On her way to Victory Junction last week, Connor stopped in town on the conclusion of her tour of Kangaroo Express stores; there are over 500 throughout South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia.
She got to ride in style, thanks to the generosity of Taylor Swift. Several years ago, the popular country singer donated a bright pink truck for the representative to use in the promotion of Victory Junction.
