Racing for a Cure 8 “Reaching New Heights” is raising the bar once again to give the incredible VIP Stollery kids an experience they will cherish for the rest of their lives.
On Saturday June 22nd:
As a group all the pre-registered exotics, custom & unique cars will be staged at the Synergy Aviation hangers at the Villeneuve airport. Starting at 8:00 am all of the registered VIP children will first have the opportunity to take a short ride high in the sky over the city. The VIPs will encounter breathtaking views of the surrounding area in one of the many Synergy Aviation Helicopters we will have ready and waiting. Once all the VIP kids have “reached new heights” and earned their rotors they will return to the ground and rendezvous with their assigned exotic car drivers/owners. As a group at 11:00 am the VIP children will be riding shotgun in the exotic cars and will now head out on an amazing journey throughout the city of St. Albert and continuing to the Edmonton city core. These VIP kids will be treated and feel like true Rock Stars while immersed in the passenger seats of these high octane custom & exotics cruising the city streets in packs.
It is going to be Epic!
The group ride will travel throughout the city of Edmonton and will take them past several historic landmarks and onto some of the city's most famous roads. We will then make our way to the Legislative grounds where the fifty million dollars' worth of exotic cars will roll in at 12:00 NOON under a police escort to a thunderous applause by the thousands of spectators cheering them on. A true rock star welcome!
The event vehicles will be parked on Fortway Road to show them off to the public and the incredible legislative festivities will continue. The drivers along with their very special VIP passengers meet up with their respective families for an incredible catered lunch under the big top. Here the drivers get some valuable time to spend with the families and learn firsthand why and who we are raising these funds for.
For the public all Legislative activities begin at 11:00 am and run till 4:00 pm. We will have live entertainment on the legislative grounds main stage such as dance competitions, local award winning singers, fencing demonstrations, live bands an much , much more! There will also be a large amount of activities for the VIP kids/families and public to participate in such as climbing walls, 30 foot reverse bungies, sumo suits, hamster balls plus 30 other amazing rides and games to participate in. Also we will have some of Edmonton's top food trucks on hand to add even more flavor to this already amazing event.
There will be so much to see and do that you will need the whole day to enjoy it all. All activities on the legislative grounds are completely free for the public. It will be an exciting family fun day for all ages!
If the public wish to get up close and personable with the very rare and cool cars on display it will be by donation. The money raised from this event will benefit the Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation, who help the affected sick children and their families in profound, life changing ways.
