Help Us Create a World Without Child Abuse. Until every child is safe from abuse... OUR RAACE HAS NO FINISH LINE!
That tag line pretty much sums it up! The Race Against Abuse of Children Everywhere - RAACE is a 501(c)3 non profit organization dedicated to stopping this horrible epidemic. Child sexual abuse is tragically destructive, all too common, and totally preventable.
The abuse will not go away on its own. It's up to all of us to stand firm and protect children from sexual abuse. RAACE is operating at full speed to leave child abuse behind. But our race has just started. We need your support and involvement to help prevent the abuse and to create social change in the Race Against Abuse of Children Everywhere.
In the coming months with the help of our new CMO - Incite Creative, we plan to launch a great new program where everyone can take the time to keep it from happening! However, we need you to join the race today! RAACE has many ways you can help win The Race Against Abuse of Children Everywhere. From our supporter program, The Donate your Ride for RAACE program, our Charity Auction to matching gifts from your employer, or even donations of cash, goods and services/gifts-in-kind, of collections or by legacy. Corporate cause marketing programs, advertising, sponsorship, and affiliate sales/marketing are great ways your business can help RAACE prevail.
In the Race Against Abuse of Children Everywhere donations of time and expertise are just as important as gifts of cash, goods or services. We're always looking for volunteers to help at our events. Our advocates are comprised of those individuals that truly have a desire to step up to assist in raising awareness about this horrible epidemic and have shown through their collaborative, responsible, objective and professional actions that they can help.

Motorsports 2013 Kids Big Wheel Races and Charity Auction Another Huge Success!
As in years past, large crowds packed the aisles of The Greater Philadelphia Expo Center. Exhibitors, racers, fans and promoters took in everything racing at Motorsports 2013 Fueled by Sunoco.
The Motorsports 2013 Show had something for everyone-free celebrity autographs from NASCAR star Michael Waltrip, future stars Ty Dillon and Austin Dillon, Indy legend Parnelli Jones and many more of yesterday and today's racing hero's.
Vendors of all types from Martinsville Speedway to DMI Racing Products to Lehigh Valley Grand Prix and more filled more than 600 exhibit areas and no less than 250 race vehicles representing a wide variety of motorsports were on display and enjoyed by the fans. Stage shows featured the 28th annual Ms. Motorsports contest on Saturday night. The serious racer could also find everything needed to put a turn-key race car on the track and tow it to the speedway in style.
The RAACE Foundation's display focused on the charity auction to help raise funds to win The Race Against Abuse of Children Everywhere and at the same time staff and volunteers took a few seconds to let everyone know why it is "Time to Talk" about child abuse for all of us.
Key auction items included a Don Prudhomme and Carol Shelby signed Cobra print that collected over $300, while a Ray Lewis Baltimore Ravens signed print went for $450 dollars and a autographed Redskins Helmet signed by rookie sensation Alfred Morris sold for $325. "Just with the sports collectibles alone we out sold last years auction. This new silent auction format was received well by everyone and we are looking forward to building on the success for next year. The final numbers are still beeing added up as winners continue to pick up items they one. Key to next year is adding a component of the auction for racers. We are looking for items that racers use as a way to engage the teams and drivers" said RAACE Executive Director Brad Brickel.
The display also featured the TeamRAACE vehicles of: Ashley & Brian Therien, Dave Shirk, Dakota Kohler. TeamRAACE driver Kyle Weiss was the featured stock car in the 4 Star Lettering booth where he won best appearing stock car for the event.
Sunday was "Family Day" sponsored by MetalFab, where The RAACE Foundation's Big Wheel races where held. The RAACE Foundation would like to thank Len Sammons and his AARN staff and volunteers for being fantastic hosts and for making the show such a huge success, not just for The RAACE Foundation but for everyone in motorsports.
