Last month we reported on the MINI Takes the States Sweepstakes, where MINI was offering attendees of their National Sweepstakes where participants had the opportunity to enjoy a day of training with an Olympian and driving MINIs all day.

John Goral and his wife, Kathy Curran, of Suwanee, Georgia were named as the official winners of the MINI Takes the States Sweepstakes, whisking away on an three-night trip to the 2012 London Olympics. There the couple will enjoy admission tickets for two to select events (Athletics/Track & Field, Table Tennis, Futbol and Ladies Beach Volleyball). Goral and Curran joined MTTS in Charlotte, North Carolina and stayed with the rally through the stop in Chicago.

“I was in shock when I received the call telling me that we won,” said John Goral. We’ve enjoyed some wonderful events with MINI, but this one definitely falls into the category of a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ MINI experience…”

The U.S. Paralympic Team was the charitable partner for MTTS in the month of July, and the partnership opened the door for rally participants to engage in another once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: the “Michael Johnston Challenge.” This fundraising initiative offered MTTS participants a chance to train with an athlete as he ran and rode his bicycle during segments of the cross-country rally.
