Racing For Cancer

Racing For Cancer is a non-profit organization founded by 2012 IndyCar champion and 2014 Indy500 champion Ryan Hunter-Reay following his mother’s passing from cancer in 2009.  Since 2010, Racing for Cancer has been uniting motorsports fans, teams, drivers, and sponsors together to join in the global fight to beat cancer. Founded with the goal of beating cancer, Racing for Cancer, celebrated a successful first four years in 2014 as they exceeded their fundraising goals, highlighted in November 2014 when the board, Hunter-Reay and his family had the honor of presenting the Cleveland Clinic Florida, Maroone Cancer Center, with a $2.5 million dollar gift. The generous donation made possible by top sponsor AutoNation, Inc. and numerous donors nationwide took just four short years of fundraising.  The cancer center is a first-of-its-kind facility providing comprehensive services under one roof, something Hunter-Reay could not find when he was trying to help his mother. The center's lobby will be named in memory of Hunter-Reay’s late mother, Lydia Hunter-Reay. Racing For Cancer continues its mission to focus on early detection and prevention by fundraising to support various initiatives consistent with our simply, Beat Cancer!
