Providing donations to fund cancer treatments to current patients and research that will continue to find more robust and less invasive ways to treat pediatric cancer patients.

We are a “kids helping kids” event. The second service we provide in sync, is teaching our young racers the importance of helping other kids who lead a very different life. Our young racers form an emotional attachment to St. Jude kids and work to become the future generation of philanthropic giving and awareness.
