I'm raising money for Child's Play for this year's M1GP 24 hour charity race.
Every team that enters the race raises at least $250 toward charities of their choosing, it's an amazing event that I can't wait to take part in again.
Myself and three friends will be riding a crf50 for 24 hours at the kart track in Willow Springs CA. You can learn more about the race and the organization here: https://m1-grandprix.com/
Last year our team raised over $400 and this year our goal is at least $500!
Since 2003, we've set up and organized Child's Play, a game industry charity dedicated to improving the lives of children with toys and games in our network of over 220 facilities worldwide, including hospitals and domestic abuse shelters. Over the years, you as a community have answered the call and come together to raise millions of dollars.
Child's Play works in two ways. With the help of hospital staff, we set up gift wish lists full of video games, toys, books, and other fun stuff for kids. By clicking on a hospital location on our map, you can view that hospital's wish list and send a gift.
Child's Play also receives cash donations throughout the year. With those cash donations, we purchase new consoles, peripherals, games, and more for hospitals and therapy facilities. These donations allow for children to enjoy age-appropriate entertainment, interact with their peers, friends, and family, and can provide vital distraction from an otherwise generally unpleasant experience.
