ATLANTIC CITY, NJ.– Racing for Kids, the Michigan based nonprofit that visits kids at Children’s Hospitals and other children-centric organizations around the United States, joined forces again with drivers from the Red Bull Global Rallycross Series (GRC), who were in Atlantic City for a race.
Team Subaru Drivers Bucky Lasek and Sverre Isachsen and Alex Keys of Dreyers & Reinbold Racing took time to visit with three dozen children at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Atlantic County (NJ) Specialty Care Center Friday, August 26, 2016.
The youngsters were treated with autographs and pictures, an opportunity to sit in the Team Subaru race car and a chance to look at a series’ racing engine display.
According to Specialty Care Center Officials, the Racing for Kids sponsored drivers were just what the doctor ordered so to speak.
“The children loved the event, the drivers were very interactive and caring and the whole event was very professionally done,” observed Carl J. Wolfarth, Operations Manager Children’s Intensive Emotional & Behavioral Services Department of Atlantic City facility.
“We cannot thank you enough,” he told Racing for Kids and Red Bull GRC representatives.
The Atlantic County based facility focuses on treating youngsters with a variety of behavioral disorders such as autism, helping to mainstream them back into their environment.
Later at the track, Racing For Kids driver Scott Speed won his third Red Bull GRC event of the season in the series’ first Atlantic City race.
