The activity was centered in the hospital’s kids zone where Conor signed autographs and answered questions about being a professional racer. Local Fox 4 news crew joined in and interviewed Conor about racing and being part of Racing For Kids hospital visits.
The patients received Racing For Kids hats and other goodies. Parents and staff welcomed Conor and asked many questions. The visit was topped off with a check presentation from iRex Group to Racing For Kids to benefit Cook Children’s. iRex graciously donated $2000 as the company continues to support Racing For Kids and Cook’s Children’s Hospital.
