Liveuncommon is basically a huge advertisement for Russell Construction, made to look like a charity. It was founded by the wife of Russell Construction's owner, has the Russell Construction logo everywhere at these races that are supposed to be charitable events, and Russell Construction is mentioned constantly at the races.

This woman has given charity a bad name. She should be ashamed, but I honestly don't think she would have any shame about anything she did. Here is where she tries to excuse the inexcusable:
