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 is just a great charity and a great cause.  To go on a hospital visit and to visit kids that are sick and that have such an optimistic outlook  - it’s mind boggling and so inspirational.  Racing For Kids has done so much over so many years.  I’m just glad to be a part of it and to have the opportunity to make a difference.” - Ryan Hunter-Reay
