    Honda teams up with Omaze to offer one winner the first U.S. market 2021 Civic Type R Limited Edition Serial Plate 001 production model


    Omaze prize package includes the Civic Type R Limited Edition and Honda "Racing Spirit" package with exclusive race track experience with Colton Herta


    Every donation supports the Thurgood Marshall College Fund

 


Honda has teamed with online fundraising platform Omaze to offer an exclusive prize package for driving enthusiasts in North America, featuring the 2021 Civic Type R Limited Edition. Starting today, fans can enter for their chance to win the very first 2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition for the U.S., Serial Plate 001.


In addition to driving home the Type R Limited Edition, the randomly drawn winner will also receive a once-in-a-lifetime driving experience on the track with Honda IndyCar driver, Colton Herta. Donations support Honda's partner, the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF), which supports 47 public Historically Black Colleges and Universities, medical schools, and law schools and is the nation's largest organization exclusively representing the Black College Community. Fans can enter for a chance to win, starting today through Feb. 18, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. PST: Omaze.com/CivicTypeR.



"We're excited to link Honda's 'racing spirit' and the all-new Civic Type R Limited Edition to benefit Historically Black Colleges and Universities and the Thurgood Marshall College Fund," said Yvette Hunsicker, vice president, Corporate Social Responsibility and the Office of Inclusion and Diversity, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "One lucky Type R fan is going to take home a very special vehicle and have an exclusive driving experience at a Honda track with Colton Herta, while helping support the needs of HBCU students navigating their education during COVID-19."



Donations will support the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, which is currently running a COVID-19 Emergency Fund, which provides support for students in areas such as technology, mental health, housing, and food insecurity.



 "Historically Black Colleges and Universities have been greatly impacted by COVID-19, and many of our students don't have a safety net," said Dr. Harry L. Williams, president and CEO of TMCF. "This initiative to give away a Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition will help us continue to provide much-needed assistance to our students and schools."



The Honda Civic Type R first hit the ground in the U.S. in 2017, and has continued to impress and turn the heads of enthusiasts with its combination of powerful performance and civilized driving manners. The new Limited Edition model, in its eye-catching Phoenix Yellow paint, takes the already high-performance Type R to the next level through various changes in engineering and features designed to maximize its potential while remaining street-legal. The Serial Plate 001 Civic Type R Limited Edition is the first of 600 Limited Edition models planned for the U.S. market.




Honda and Historically Black Colleges and Universities


Honda has supported the success and dreams of students at America's Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) for more than three decades. Earlier this year, Honda provided emergency relief funds to HBCUs to support their local communities impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Honda also supports HBCU students through initiatives like the Honda Campus All-Star Challenge and Honda Battle of the Bands.



To further support HBCUs, Honda chose the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF), named for the late Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, as the recipient of funds raised through the Omaze sweepstakes. Honda partners annually with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund to provide scholarship funding to HBCU students pursuing an education in engineering, supply chain management and manufacturing-related fields.
