Apparel company partners with Rick Ware Racing to raise money for cancer

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) -- Gotta Kill It To Heal It Apparel company is partnering with Rick Ware Racing to raise money for the Kay Yow Cancer Foundation.

Andy Wolfe, the owner of Gotta Kill It To Heal It, says, "I want everybody to know that it doesn't start on October 1st and it doesn't end on October 31st. It's a battle every single day for somebody fighting cancer."

Now a nationwide movement, Wolfe's shirts are featured in stores all across the country.

The apparel line will also be featured by Rick Ware Racing at a NASCAR Monster Energy event later this month as a way to raise additional funds for women fighting cancer of any kind.

"If you will donate a dollar and I have to hand-write your name on there, I'm going to put it on the car. We want everybody to be a part of the car," says Wolfe.

Dale Collins works at Dudley's Marina where Gotta Kill It To Heal It shirts are sold. He says the apparel line gets customer's attention.

"Anybody that walks in and sees the shirts, they've had something to do with it along the line," says Dudley.

With the line of apparel scheduled to be featured at the Martinsville 500, Collins says he expects more attention will be brought to women battling all cancers, not just breast cancer.

Kevin is a racer, so he gets it.  He and I have a great deal in common and I am very excited to build on this first event and looking forward to seeing what the future holds.  They sent a full production crew to our shop last week to film a commercial and that indicates to me that they understand the need to promote their brand with our race team," said team owner, Rick Ware.
