Welcome to Racing for Kids

Founded in Detroit in 1989, Racing For Kids® is designed to use the
increasing popularity of motorsports to focus public attention and
funding on the health care needs of children.

The hospital visits form the heart of the program. Racing For Kids®
drivers visit children in Children’s Hospitals wherever they race. They
spend time with each sick youngster answering questions about their
sport, posing for pictures, signing autographs and handing out the
distinctive Racing For Kids® hats, coloring books and assorted
memorabilia provide by our sponsors.

Racing For Kids® representatives have visited with more than 25,000
young patients in nearly 500 hospitals in the United States, Canada,
Mexico, Brazil, Japan, and Australia.

In addition, nearly $6 million has been raised through donations and
specific fund raising events for children’s hospitals and child health
institutions and causes across the country.
