Over $75,000 RaisedSupporting
Basic Science Cancer Research

What a beautiful event day we had at the Autobahn Country Club in Joliet for the Inaugural Karting for Cancer event on Saturday, September 25, 2021! We welcomed 13 racing teams, over 150+ attendees, and raised over $75,000 to make a difference in basic science cancer research! A special thank you to our Team Captains and racing teams who went above and beyond to support cancer research. On behalf of the entire H Foundation team, I wanted to thank you for your support, enthusiasm and hard work that helped to make the event a true success! The teams enjoyed the day tailgating before the race and the friendly competition while fighting cancer. It was amazing to see everyone celebrate together (while also competing for the title of champion) and know that TOGETHER we are making a difference in cancer research.

We definitely exceeded our fundraising and participations goals with over $75,000 raised and over 150 supporters in attendance with drivers & spectators. We would like to give a big CONGRATULATIONS to team MRW Truck Repair for their 1st place fundraising and 1st place racing victory! In addition, we would like to congratulate our 2nd & 3rd place racing and fundraising teams. Below is the breakdown for everyone to see!
