Make A Mark
The Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One Team’s philanthropic program, Make A Mark, commits us to being environmentally and socially accountable, consistently basing our actions on principles to protect our planet, making a mark on the communities where we work and creating a culture where diversity and equality thrive. The AMF1 team made a mark in Miami last year by in collaboration with our strategic partner, Cognizant, we undertook a STEM outreach program with Carol City Middle School located just 2.5 miles from the Miami F1 circuit. 650 students aged 12 – 15 years old attended a school assembly with Sebastian Vettel, they were incredibly enthusiastic about the show car, his inspirational Q&A session and the next steps of the STEM program planned for later in the Summer. 7th grade student Za’niyahRhim said, "Today was super fun meeting him. It was a big opportunity and it inspired me to follow my dreams no matter what.” After the Miami GP, the AMF1 team and fans cleaned up trash left in the grandstands to prevent pollution. Additionally, $5,000 was donated to a local environmental charity in Miami.
