This year's 135th Annual White House Easter Egg Roll will kick off Monday, April 1 with Roush Fenway's No. 99 Fastenal Ford Fusion featured at The Ellipse in the nation's capital. NASCAR star Carl Edwards drives the No. 99 in the Sprint Cup Series.
The 2013 Easter Egg Roll, which takes place on the South Lawn of the White House, is focused on promoting health and wellness with the theme, "Be Healthy, Be Active, Be You!" The event features live music, sports courts, cooking stations, storytelling and, of course, Easter egg rolling. The activities encourage children to lead healthy, active lives in support of the First Lady's Let's Move! initiative.
"It will be an honor to have the No. 99 Fastenal Ford Fusion on site at the White House," said Pat Resch, Fastenal's VP of Marketing. "We're looking forward to being a part of this Easter tradition and presenting the Fastenal brand to 30,000-plus attendees."
