Racing 2 Cure's (R2C) mission is to help families that are currently fighting cancer. R2C wants to treat the "Human Side" of cancer. R2C donates a portion of the funds raised to cancer organizations that do amazing work in research, treatment, and raising awareness for this horrible disease. Additionally, funds are used by Racing 2 Cure to directly help families with everyday needs such as:
* Travel expenses
* Temporary housing expenses
* Utility bills
* Car payments
* Insurance premiums
* Medical equipment
* After school activities for kids (with transportation)
* Day care (during treatments)
* Tutoring for students
* House cleaning / yard services
Racing 2 Cure was founded by Todd and Alycia Stewart along with their son Hunter Stewart formerly in 2010. Hunter had just begun racing off-road trophy karts around Southern California when his Mom (Alycia) was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.
Hunter began raising money one-lap at a time by donating his allowance for every race lap he completed. This small grassroots effort was formalized after Alycia was diagnosed a second time. During her very tough second battle with cancer, Hunter and his parents were growing in their passion for both racing as an outlet for the family to escape the hardships of cancer and also were witnessing the need for family support during cancer battles.
Over the course of four years of fundraising, Racing 2 Cure has raised over $30,000 for families fighting cancer. Racing 2 Cure will not stop providing for families and individuals dealing with cancer until there is a cure and no one is suffering. Our passion for Fighting Cancer One Lap at A Time drives the success of our campaign and the future of Racing 2 Cure.
