UNITED STATES -- A local community activist is up for another big prize. Pastor Charlie Muller, of Albany's Victory Christian Church, is one of the finalists in Toyota's "100 Cars for Good" contest.
If he wins the contest, he'll get a Toyota Tundra, which he says he'll donate to charity. Pastor Charlie plans on giving the truck to NYPUM. NYPUM, or the National Youth Project Using Minibikes, is a group that gives kids a chance to try unconventional sports.
The racing team was honored on Wednesday for their success at a regional tournament. Last week, the team competed against ten other NYPUM racing organizations from across the region and received first place for their performance.
Pastor Charlie explained how winning this contest would benefit the kids.
"If we get as many votes as we can, out of five other charities, then we win a new Tundra. It could be used for the kids to transport the vehicles and to be used to get food for our food program. We are looking to really see the kids benefit from some of the creative ways we have been using to fund some of these projects," he said.
If you want to vote to help Pastor Charlie win, the polls are open from 10 a.m. until midnight. You can vote on Toyota's Facebook page.
