Racing for a Cure 2017

On Saturday, June 24, 2017 a charitable fundraising event will take place in downtown Edmonton at the south legislative grounds and accompanying roadways. Racing for a Cure raises funds in support of The Kids With Cancer Society. The event offers rides in exotic vehicles around a closed road circuit with a donation made directly to the Kids With Cancer Society. This family centred charity event will also feature a show and shine, food trucks and kids entertainment. Last year Racing for a Cure raised over $565,000 for Kids with Cancer Society from this one day event.
