LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Sparrow Hospital hosted a unique fundraiser on Wednesday with Grand Ledge Ford/Lincoln.

They partnered up with a goal to raise $8,000.

As part of Lincoln's, "Driven to Give" program, everyone who took part in a test drive of a Lincoln was responsible for a donation from Lincoln to Sparrow.

The money raised will go towards equipment and treatment, research and education at the Herbert-Herman Cancer Center and Sparrow Children's Center.

Lincoln even donated another $10 to anyone who was willing to test drive a second vehicle at the event.

"To date, Lincoln dealerships and local communities across the United States have helped raised more than $8 million for educational and charitable organizations thanks to their hard work and partnership with the Driven to Give program."

The event was from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and each ride was about 10 minutes long.
