Off and Running in 2015! is off and running in 2015!

Man y Thanks! As February comes to a close, would like to recap the month’s activities and     thank everyone that made the kick off of 2015 a HUGE Success!


We will start with the biggest news first. has topped $200,000 in total charity funds raised in support of Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital over the past five years! Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!! We are so grateful to all of you that have supported since the beginning.


February started with a bang with the Michigan International Auto Show where the 2015 Racing Awareness cars were debuted! RA volunteers donated over 700 volunteer hours where they spoke to show attendees about Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital and race cars!

The Auto Show was amazing with the decaling of the 97L Modified and 101L Super Late with Horvath Design’s own Tim Horvath. The weekend also included Super Hands for the April 25
running of the RA Modified. The Pit Crew Challenge was also a new addition to the show,
where Eric and Angela took top honors in the mens’ and womens’ divisions.IMG_9805

The team was joined by Consumers Credit Union throughout the show as CCU brought the Prize Wheel to all who made a donation. Thank you to the show attendees and wonderful community merchants and organizations that donated to make the activities a success!

Cars moved out and golfers moved into the DeVos Place, where team joined Golfcore – Schueller the following weekend at the West Michigan Golf Show to work on the Longest Drive and $10,000 putting contests. While the holiday weekend and Mother Nature had something to say about attendance Friday and Saturday, Sunday’s turnout was awesome
and every person in attendance was a golfer looking forward to hitting the links in the spring. DSC_5956
Thank you to everyone that stopped by to say hello and that participated in the activities. would like to send a special thank you to our friends at ShowSpan for their partnership with show breakfasts for the RV and Remodeling & New Homes Shows as well as their phonominal coolaboartion with the Michigan International Auto Show and West Michigan Golf Show. Their involvement and support of the West DSC_5975Michigan community is unsurpassed! Great people doing GREAT things!

In there too, RA released our new racing appeal for 2015 and relaunched our Twitter Updates
@RacingAwareness. All that, and the NASCAR series opened the 2015 racing season with
Speedweeks at Daytona International Speedway where the action did not disappoint.

We would be remiss if we didn’t call our friends from Travis Truck and Auto Collision for their beautiful paint work on each of the three RA cars. Thank you also to Baker Engineering for their unwavering support of RA, and to each of our partners, all which are returning for the 2015 season. We’ll have more on each of these great organization in the months to come.

So we’re off, both on and off the track. The RA teams will now shift their attention to final details for the race DSC_5800teams as they prepare the three RA cars for the team’s season opener at the Berlin Raceway on Saturday April 25.

Follow RA throughout the year and our Quest 4 A Quarter (‪#‎Quest4AQuarter‬) as we work towards a quarter of a million dollars raised in support of Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital by year end.
