Racing for a Cure now in its 9th year is committed to supporting the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation.
The event began in 2012 with a group of local car enthusiasts. This family focused event provides the opportunity to pair VIP sick kids with rides of a lifetime in world class exotic (and custom) vehicles while raising money for this incredible cause.
Racing for a Cure is geared towards the kids who we are raising these very important funds for. Funds raised from this incredible event go directly to the charity. They all thank you from the bottom of their hearts.
