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 Breanna.
When Make-A-Wish® volunteers first entered Breanna’s life, she was running around excitedly and doing cartwheels around her house. But things weren’t always so exciting for the Tampa resident. Her adventurous spirit was confined to a hospital bed for many months while she endured a liver transplant and its recovery process.
When she heard that she was eligible for a wish, she wanted something that would take her places…a vehicle as vibrant as her personality! On Breanna’s wish day, she was presented with a custom pink go-cart and was in her element as she slipped into the driver’s seat.
Alongside the actual go-cart, Breanna was also given custom gear. With her pink helmet, driving gloves and personalized jacket in tow, Breanna was ready to ride. Nothing will hold her back anymore…full-speed ahead!
