The heart of what we do is at Riley Hospital, and the kids that fill the beds there. We are honored to be able to visit with some of these amazing families, and bring them race related gifts and fun. After that, we hold a huge party for the kids that are able to leave their rooms for a bit to enjoy fun, games, activities, and special guests! This is the most special day of the year to the whole Race for Riley team. DUE TO HOSPITAL RESTRICTIONS, THIS EVENT IS NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
The Race for Riley is more than a one-day a year event... it is several events over several days, all to benefit the kids at Riley Hospital. All events are volunteer run, and all event expenses are covered by individuals, NOT your donations! Here are the annual events:
Michael Andretti and the Andretti Autosport team open their doors up to a group of Riley families for a very cool few hours. Families get a private tour of a world class race shop guided by John and Jarett Andretti, a bit of lunch at tables near the amazing team Transporters, followed by a Question and Answer session featuring Michael, John, and Jarett Andretti! THIS EVENT IS BY INVITATION ONLY, AND NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
After a long day racing, we gather with our sponsors and VIP invited guests to one of the coolest dinner events in town! More than a dozen restaurants bring their best dishes for all to enjoy, Big Joe serves up top shelf beverages from behind the bar, and John and Dave lead guests through an evening of fun and inspiration. Gourmet desserts are provided by Kroger, and attendees can bid on top of the line unique items in our silent and live auctions! CLICK HERE FOR 2019 EVENT DETAILS!
The event that started it all! Helping kids one lap at a time, Race for Riley is a go-kart race, driving "head to head" with Jarett Andretti. Donate to Riley Hospital for Children to secure a spot to drive at this state of the art karting facility, with a 1 mile road course featuring a 950 foot back straight, multiple layouts, AMB Scoring System, 28' wide track width, paved pit roads and grid area - it's an experience of a lifetime, for a great cause!
