2014 Toyota Everyday Heroes

The Toyota Everyday Heroes announced at the epsnW Women+ Sports Summit this past week and all of the women honored help run non-profits that are focused on helping women and girls be active.

In 2013 at the espnW Women + Sports Summit, Toyota began their Toyota Everyday Heroes program to honor women who are making a difference for women and girls in their communities through sports. This past week, Toyota announced the winners for the second-year of the Everyday Heroes, and we too, wanted to take some time to honor the three 2014 Toyota Everyday Heroes.

First, there is Dr. Kimberly S. Clay. She founded the Play Like a Girl non-profit. This is a resource that promots physical activity to help motivate young girls to have an active lifestyle. The non-profit’s programs target girls from 8-18 and helps them make healthier lifestyle choices by educating them about food and exercise.

The next recipient of the 2014 Toyota Everyday Heroes award is Monica Gonzales. She was a former professional soccer player and she is a current ESPN soccer commentator. She founded Gonzo Soccer, a soccer and leadership academy non-profit for Chicago girls from 8-16. This non-profit has expanded and Gonzo Soccer now has academies in Houston, Chicago, Columbia, and Mexico.

The third and final recipient of Toyota’s Everyday Heroes award went to Claire Smallwood, the executive director and one of the founders of the non-proft, SheJumps. This non-profit is designed to get women and girls outside, enjoying the great outdoors together, and increase their overall participation in outdoor sports. The non-profit is set up for women of all ages and of all skill levels to have opportunities to find new activities or just new people to do them with.

We just want to say thank you to these three great women and thank you to all of the heroes right here in our community. You help make our country, and our town a better place. Let us here at Haddad Toyota know who you think from our community is an Everyday Hero in the comments below.

Something for Everyone – The 2014 Toyota Avalon

2014 Toyota Avalon
The 2014 Toyota Avalon is the perfect mix of luxury and pracitcality.

The 2014 Toyota Avalon was named by Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com as having the Best Resale Value in its class, but that’s not the only things that is so impressive about the full-sized sedan. Coming in four trims, XLE, XLE Premium, XLE Touring, and Limited, as well as having three Hybrid trims, the 2014 Toyota Avalon truly does have something for everyone.

Its sleek interior makes it one of the most comfortable rides for its class. With standard heated front seats, a 6.1-inch touch screen, hands free phone technology, and steering wheel mounted audio controls on all trims, the 2014 Avalon will impress even the most difficult of critics. With options for a leather steering wheel and heated rear seats, there is no end to luxury.

However, the Avalon’s performance is just as impressive. With a standard powerful 3.5L V6, 268 horse-power engine, the Avalon will help you zoom to your destination in style. Even with this powerful engine, the Avalon still gets 21 MPG City* and 31 MPG Highway,* helping you save at the pump. Its responsive design and smooth, quiet ride will hit all the right notes for those looking for a luxury sedan without the luxury price.
