Drive Cancer Out Car
‘Drive Cancer Out’ Car.

We bring you this week our first reader-submitted art car. Michelle of Consuming Louisville fame spotted this yellow Corvette sporting a large no smoking sign and the words “Drive Cancer Out” in a parking garage in the Medical Center (how appropriate). We looked into the meaning behind the metal and discovered a local organization called “Drive Smoke Out.”

Here’s some background information from their web site:

Drive Cancer Out is a not-for-profit organization led by physicians, U of L medical students and lung cancer survivors who are devoted to keeping our youth healthy, well educated and smoke free. With our first hand knowledge of tobacco related diseases, we have developed an innovative and interactive program that youngsters find entertaining and memorable. We use cool sports cars as a prop to garner attention in conjunction with a hands on educational program that emphasizes the medical sequelae of tobacco use.

Don’t forget to keep your eyes out for an art car (or bike!) in your neighborhood (or anything else you think might fit on the Broken Sidewalk).  Snap a photo and send or tell us about it at tips@brokensidewalk.com.
