Laps for a Cause: MyRadar and Kyle Weatherman team up to support Canine Companions

Leading weather app debuts NASCAR partnership with Weatherman on National Puppy Day by donating up to $10,000 to provide service dogs for individuals with disabilities

ORLANDO, March 22, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- To launch its primary sponsorship of DGM Racing’s No. 91 Chevy Camaro driven by Kyle Weatherman — recognized as the Unofficial Official Weatherman of NASCAR — MyRadar will make a contribution of up to $10,000 to Canine Companions during the NASCAR race weekend at Circuit of The Americas (COTA) in Austin, TX. As part of its partnership with DGM Racing, MyRadar will adorn Weatherman’s Chevrolet during the Focused Health 250 NASCAR Xfinity Series race March 23 — which coincides with National Puppy Day.

MyRadar is the highest-rated, top-10 weather app with more than 15 million active users across iOS, Android™, and Windows platforms, so sponsoring the Unofficial Official Weatherman of NASCAR was a natural fit. Since their first race together falls on National Puppy Day, MyRadar announced they will make contributions for each MyRadar download beyond the 10,000th download during the action-packed race weekend, up to $10,000, to Canine Companions, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained service dogs at no cost to the recipient.

“We’re excited to kick off our partnership with Kyle Weatherman and DGM Racing on National Puppy Day by supporting Canine Companions’ mission to help adults, children and veterans with disabilities live with greater independence and improve their quality of life,” said Andy Green, CEO of MyRadar. "Our commitment to delivering actionable live weather updates, free of charge and accessible for all, aligns with the notable work Canine Companions does to assist people with disabilities while on the go. We encourage the NASCAR community to join our efforts in increasing access to service dogs for those in need.”

Fans who tune in to watch Weatherman in action behind the wheel of the MyRadar Chevrolet can support Canine Companions by downloading the MyRadar app. After receiving 10,000 downloads during the NASCAR at COTA weekend, MyRadar will donate 25 cents per additional download up to $5,000. Upon 50,000 downloads, MyRadar will double its donation to $10,000.

“Given the Focused Health 250 brings together consumers and business leaders with passions for entertainment, education and health, it’s an honor to be supported alongside like-minded organizations,” said Jeanine Konopelski, vice president marketing and advocacy at Canine Companions. “Thanks to the generous advocacy from businesses like MyRadar, Canine Companions can provide expertly trained service dogs to children, adults and veterans with disabilities at no cost.”

The Focused Health 250 will take place at Circuit of the Americas March 23, with live coverage available on FS1. To download the MyRadar app on any smartphone platform, please visit
