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® representatives have visited with more than 25,000 young patients in nearly 500 hospitals in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Japan, and Australia.

In addition, nearly $6 million has been raised through donations and specific fund raising events for children’s hospitals and child health institutions and causes across the country.
