Subaru Breaks World Record For The Largest Parade Of Subaru Cars!


Subaru owners joined together on July 13, 2013 to support two different, but very important charities. Not only did the Subaru owners raise money for the charities, but they gathered to break the Guinness World Record for the largest parade of Subaru cars. The original event was recorded in 2009 when 339 Subaru owners participated in the first ever parade of Subaru vehicles. The Guinness officials were on hand to verify the record.

The Village of Itasca, Ill, opened their town to Subaru again in July for Subaru to host the parade. This year, 371 Subaru owners participated. The previous record of 339 vehicles was broken and a new record of 371 was added to the record books. The event raised $10,000 for PAWS Chicago and Salute, Inc. Each charity will receive $5,000. Subaru owners were thrilled to participate in the Guinness World Record breaking event, and they traveled from nine states to take part. 

PAWS Chicago will receive $5,000 to save many homeless pets and find them forever homes. Rochelle Michalek, the executive director for PAWS Chicago, expressed excitement for the generous donation and the invitation to participate in the event. PAWS Chicago congratulated Subaru on their record-setting event. 

Mary Beth Beiersdorf, executive director for Salute, Inc., stated that she appreciated all Subaru has given to their organization. The organization also received $5,000 from Subaru. Salute, Inc counts on corporate donations and expressed how grateful the organization was for Subaru's support.

Although Subaru is a subsidiary of Fuji of Japan, Subaru's headquarters are located in a zero-landfill office in New Jersey. All production plants are zero-landfill too. This means that all waste is recycled and nothing is sent to landfills. 

Subaru has long been a corporation that cares about the environment. Subaru of Indiana Automotive is a backyard wildlife habitat certified by the National Wildlife Federation. The only automobile manufacturer in the world with the honor of being certified a wildlife habitat.

Not only does Subaru contribute to charitable organizations through events like the Guinness World Record event, they partner with many organizations that reflect their commitment to the environment like Leave No Trace and Greensgrow Farms.
