Our mission at RAM Racing is not only to raise funds to support our official charities but also to promote, raise awareness and support the mission of the organization.
Make-A-Wish® creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. We are on a quest to bring every eligible child's wish to life, because a wish is an integral part of a child's treatment journey. Research shows children who have wishes granted build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness. Headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, Make-A-Wish® is the world’s leading children’s wish-granting organization, serving children in every community in the United States and in 50 countries worldwide. Together, generous donors, supporters, staff and 33,000 volunteers across the U.S., grant a wish every 34 minutes, on average, somewhere in the country. Since 1980, Make-A-Wish® has granted more than 285,000 wishes to children in the U.S. and its territories; more than 15,300 in 2016 alone.

Your support can help grant wishes for kids like Colin.
On summer nights, Colin loves chasing fireflies under the stars. He used to love spending his days in his backyard, playing with his twin brother Ethan. But when the Powder Springs, GA resident was diagnosed with cancer, days in the great outdoors turned into nights at the hospital.
A World of Possibilities When Colin’s wish volunteers came to visit, he knew that his one true wish was to have a golden doodle puppy wrapped in a big red bow. Colin’s new best friend would be his constant companion whether he was gazing at the stars or stuck inside.
Welcome home, Cosmo!
As Colin eagerly awaited his new friend, he continued treatments at the hospital. His wish fairy sent “Pupdates” throughout the process to keep his spirits up. Colin met his new best friend and they instantly connected.
