The Race Against Kids' Cancer is a 7+ year partnership between Rocky Mountain Vintage Racing and The Morgan Adams Foundation which is poised to top a total of $1,000,000 raised for pediatric brain cancer research in 2018. RMVR chose to do something for its community and found a natural partner in MAF which has long had other car-centric events and is well known in the auto enthusiast community in the Rocky Mountain region. MAF's mission of funding early stage research targeting pediatric brain cancers was one RMVR members were eager to support and look forward each year to hosting the RAKC which is often its largest race of the year and certainly its most exciting.
2017 was an exceptional year with Ralph Schomp Automotive stepping up in a big way by supplying 10 beautiful new BMW 340i's and MINI Cooper S cars used for the ProAm feature race. This was a first of it's kind race pairing the top 10 fundraisers from among RMVR members and pro drivers from around the country which helped to drive fundraising to an all time high of over $190,000! Thanks to Schomp Automotive, the ProAm is back in 2018 - sure to be a club and spectator favorite again this year.
New this year is an the Employer Match/Match program where race sponsorship that is matched by an employer is also matched by a special $10,000 fund. Through this program, we seek to further motivate our members to go all out in their fundraising efforts by inviting employers and companies to participate in this exciting event. We want everyone out there to get it on the fun!
You don't have to be a race car driver to see what all of the racing fun is about. RAKC features lunch rides on the race track in race, sports and exotic cars where spectators can make a donation to MAF and get a ride with a qualified car & driver to see what it's like to be out there. There's no bigger thrill for the dollar than these rides and you'll know that the donation you made for this ride will go to funding pediatric neurooncology research - a win/win!
So you can come for the racing; come to see the ProAm; come for the lunch rides; come for the Saturday party or the band; come for the excitement and friends you'll see and make there, but be sure to come on August 4th and 5th! You'll be glad you did and even happier to know that you're helping sick kids and their families find some hope.
