Racing for a Cure 9 “On Top of the World” is raising the bar once again to give the incredible VIP Stollery kids an experience they will cherish for a lifetime.
On Saturday June 20:
All pre-registered exotics, custom & unique vehicles will be staged at River Cree Resort. Starting at 9:00 am all of the registered VIP children will take a short Helicopter flight 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 head out on an amazing journey throughout the city 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!
We will make our way to the Legislature grounds where the fifty million dollars' worth of exotic & unique 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 legislature festivities 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.
All activities at the Legislature grounds begin at 10:00 am and run till 4:00 pm. We will have live entertainment on the main stage, dance competitions, local award winning singers, fencing demonstrations, live bands an much, much more! All of the carnival activities on site will be completely FREE for the VIP kids/families and public to participate in such as climbing walls, 30 foot reverse bungies, sumo suits, and hamster balls to name a few. Edmonton's top food trucks will be on hand to add even more flavor to this already amazing event.
It will be an exciting FREE FAMILY FUN DAY for all ages!
If the public wish to get up close and personal 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 sick children and their families in profound, life changing ways.
The day is capped off with an incredible Gala with dinner and live & silent auctions back at the River Cree resort. Gala Tickets are available to purchase.
