NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Jake Locker and several Titans teammates hit the gas Tuesday for a special fundraiser to benefit the quarterback's Pass It On Foundation.
Locker held a Celebrity Go-Karting Challenge at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville to raise money for the foundation he established in fall 2013.

Michael Griffin, Andy Levitre, Derrick Morgan, Bernard Pollard, Nate Washington, Charlie Whitehurst, Kendall Wright, Beau Brinkley and Jeff Adams joined the fun at the fundraiser that partnered players with sponsored teams to compete for a sparkling "Direct General Championship Cup" trophy.
"These are things I enjoy doing, so it's awesome to be able to come out and support our charity. I couldn't think of a more fun way to spend the afternoon," Locker said.
The Pass It On Foundation provides encouragement and access to technology for children who are seriously ill, physically challenged or have special needs.
"Our statement was to help kids and families here in Middle Tennessee," Locker said. "Our first project was at (Monroe Carell Jr.) Children's Hospital and then next spring we're working on starting something with them to do like an outdoor adventure, almost kind of like the Make-A-Wish Foundation does where you get the opportunity to take a kid out for a day whether it be going and shooing skeet or having the opportunity to go hunt. Just something different that maybe a kid hasn't done before and something they'll hopefully enjoy."
