Kevin Jonas will be suiting up alongside Anthony Anderson, Stephen Moyer, Eddie Cibrian, Tyson Beckford, and more for the 2011 Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race.
The race will take place Saturday, April 16, and will see stars from film, television, music, sports and fashion test their racing skills in race-ready Scion tCs on the historic 10-lap, 1.97-mile street circuit through the downtown streets of Long Beach in Southern California.
Last year's winner was Brian Austin Green will return, but will be racing in the Pro category. Past participants have included Jesse McCartney and Patrick Dempsey.
On behalf of each celebrity racer, Toyota donates $5,000 to Racing for Kids every year and another $5,000 to the winning racer's charity of choice. Racing for Kids, a national nonprofit program benefiting children's hospitals throughout the country, (in this case, Miller Children's Hospital in Long Beach and Children's Hospital in Orange County, Calif.), was created as a way to connect sick children with their favorite celebrities and race-car drivers.
Additionally, a $15,000 donation will be made in conjunction with the 14th-annual "People Pole Award." Sponsored by People magazine, the award honors the pole-position winner of the Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race qualifying session on Friday, April 15.
