In channeling our inner-child, we chose to donate to a great supportive cause that puts kids in the driver seat of fundraising – literally!
Cancer is the leading cause of many deaths in both adults and children, but childhood cancer funds account for as little as three to five per cent of all cancer research funding. By donating to partnership groups like Heavenly Smiles Racing and Kids Cancer Care Foundation, we hope to help kids with cancer get back to being kids.
Meet our friend, Danica Marks. She has raced in the Junior Dragster for her sister, Larissa, whom she lost to cancer at the young age of 11 months. Her top speed this year was 53 MPH, and next year she will be racing at the high speed of 70 MPH!
Kids like Danica race for childhood cancer awareness and to accumulate donations that help support families who have a child battling cancer, families like hers. And we’re thrilled to support her courageous initiative to get behind the wheel for her sister.
