Fireball Run participants make stop at Northeast Classic Car Museum

NORWICH, N.Y. (WKTV) - The race to recover America's missing children made a pit stop in Norwich on Wednesday at the Northeast Classic Car Museum.

Called Fireball Run, the cars involved are on an eight day, 15 city, 2,500 mile adventure. While the sixth year for the event, it's the first time in the northeast and by the end of it, drivers will have distributed 40,000 missing children posters between Ohio and Maine.

While a great cause, the run is also a game, with participants taking on different tasks throughout the journey.

"In order to get points, they have missions to accomplish which are usually geography, history, pop culture," said David Hickman of the Fireball Run. "It's fun and educational."

All of the cars have GPS devices so you can track them online via the Fireball Run Website.

The run is being filmed and will be featured in select movie theaters at the end of this month.
