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 Cindy.
Twelve year old Cindy loves listening to music and dancing. While undergoing treatment for embryonal sarcoma of the liver, which included a liver transplant, she continued to listen to music to relax even when she didn’t have the energy to dance. Her medical team at Texas Children’s Hospital referred her to receive a wish and when her wish granters asked for her one true wish, she knew she wanted to go on a shopping spree for an Xbox to play dance games with her best friends who supported her during her long hospital stays and keep her focused on enjoying each new day.Click here to donate
