Camaro Strong

The current generation Camaro has not only made new enthusiasts all over the world, but has brought us close together as good friends as this iconic car always has. As a Camaro community we always pay it forward and help out our fellow enthusiast brothers and sisters and the community at-large where we can. It’s not just a car.  The Camaro has created friendships all over the world and that is simply who we are.

wristbandsCamarostrong is evidence of this community involvement.  It was started by the Detroit 5th Gen Camaro Club in early 2015 as a fundraising effort to benefit one of their own, Mike Strong, who was battling cancer and needed help paying his bills. Initially this was done by selling Camarostrong wristbands for $5 each with all proceeds going to Mike and his family.

With incredible generosity, Ken and Kristen Lingenfelter, of Lingenfelter Performance Engineering and the Lingenfelter Foundation, in conjunction with Becky Doyle from Rodger’s Chevrolet got involved and made up a variety of different apparel options and donated all proceeds to the Camarostrong fund, again with all of the money going to Mike Strong. This took Camarostrong nation wide and allowed Mike’s wife to focus more time on caring for him and assisted with paying the extraordinarily costly cancer treatments.

Sadly, however, Mike ultimately lost his battle with cancer on May 16, 2015 at the all-too-young age of 52. Camarostrong lives on, now in his memory, raising money with the sale of apparel and accessories, along with donations, with all proceeds donated to the American Cancer Society, at the Strong family’s request, to help fight this terrible disease.
