Photo Gallery: Racing for Kids visit to Mott
Buddy Lazier, 1996 Indy 500 winner & 2000 Indy Racing League Champion, who will drive for Dreyer & Reinbold Racing in the Michigan Indy 500 and Robbie Buel, former Indy Race Car driver & Racing For Kids National Spokesperson, and others visited Mott recently with Racing for Kids.
Racing For Kids is an organization 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 patients 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.
In addition, nearly $4 million has been raised through donations and specific fund raising events for children's hospitals and child health institutions and causes across the country.
Visit sponsored by Humana-Michigan.
