Racing For Kids® kicked off the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series with an event-filled weekend in St. Petersburg, Florida. Activities included an exciting driver visit to Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital on Thursday and a thrilling, action packed kids-at-track day on Friday—all leading up to the Grand Prix race on Sunday.
Sunday’s highlight was the presentation of a $10,000 check from the Bridgestone Americas Trust Fund to Racing For Kids to help support the season long hospital visit program. Lisa Boggs, Director of Motorsports for Firestone Racing, presented the check to Racing For Kids Executive Director and CEO Pat Wright and Robbie Buhl the charity’s National Spokesperson.
Bridgestone Americas and Firestone Racing have been major supporters of RFK since 1991 and most valued partners in many of our kids-at-the-track events. Thank you so much!
