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 Trevor.
Four-year-old Trevor has been battling medullablastoma for the last two years. His days have been filled with doctor’s appointments and trips to the hospital for treatment and tests. However, Trevor doesn’t let this get in the way of doing what he loves most: playing ‘construction’ with his little brother Riley. Pretending to work on a construction site – just like his dad does – is a game that never gets old.
It was no surprise to his family when Columbus resident Trevor wished to be a construction worker for the day so he could play with the big trucks and equipment! Fully equipped and dressed for the part, Trevor and his brother Riley visited construction sites around town, where they rode on the equipment and tested some of the controls with the help of their fellow construction workers.
Trevor’s wish to be a construction worker for the day was everything he hoped it would be and more. It provided him the opportunity to do something special and helped his family ‘build’ memories they’ll never forget.
