In November 2019, Ryan Hunter-Reay and his Racing for Cancer charity presented Gilda’s Club with a grant for $10,000 for their children’s program.
Hunter-Reay was connected to Gilda’s Club by former board member and chair, Sara Howley Callari, who held a special birthday fundraiser that was matched by Racing for Cancer to support Gilda’s. The gift will help fund the support groups offered to children impacted by cancer, as well as help promote parenting skills to parents through the cancer experience.
Hunter–Reay is the most successful American driver currently competing in the Verizon IndyCar Series and is a former Indy 500 Champion and Indy Car Series Champion. He formed Racing for
Cancer in 2010 to unite motorsports fans around the world to help those afflicted with cancer. Their focus is to promote early detection and prevention initiatives, as well as efforts to help raise
awareness and support of fighting childhood cancer.
Thank you to Ryan, Beccy, Racing for Cancer, and Sara for their support!
