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 Everett.
Imperial, MO resident Everett is a curious and fun five-year old. He is always looking for a new adventure. He fills his time singing and dancing to movie songs, doing crafts, and learning. Animals have always spiked his interest and he loves to learn about them; specifically Tasmanian devils.
In 2017, a lump was found on Everett’s back and pathology confirmed that it was an embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma, a soft tissue cancer. Everett underwent numerous treatments including a 24-week course of Chemotherapy. His mom said, “The last year was difficult as we were forced to forgo many activities with friends and family. Everett’s wish is something that will renew his spirit. His wish will allow him to remember what it means to explore and be a kid without boundaries.”
