Thank You!

As the season changes here in the Midwest, and both RA’s racing and charity efforts wind down, everyone at Racing Awareness would like to extend our sincere thanks to the fans and many supporters.  A special tip of the hat to the golfers, partners and volunteers that participated last month in the 5th Annual RacingAwareness.com Charity Golf Outing Powered By Consumers Credit Union.  The outing was a huge success!

As the last event of 2014, RacingAwareness.com will, for the 5th year, partner with STAR 105.7 FM and Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital Foundation for the Think Outside Yourself Radiothon in December.  Please continue to check in here, as well as on Facebook, for updates throughout the remainder of the year.

Year round, RA’s efforts are focused on raising awareness and funds for the children and families served by Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital, so for now, we leave friends, old and new, with the Racing Awareness mission and capabilities.
