HONORARY CREW CHIEFS
Each year cancer and blood disorder patients from Children’s of Alabama are selected to serve as VIP team members and ambassadors of Racing for Children’s. Honorary Crew Chiefs have rock star status – staring in the annual car reveal at Barber Museum, are Featured Guests at the Children’s of Alabama Indy Grand Prix weekend events, develop special relationships with the drivers and team, and are frequently seen on the stage presenting or accepting trophies. Each one inspires the drivers and team.
Each handprint on the RFC car is that of a child in treatment at Children’s of Alabama and represents their particular battle with a childhood cancer or blood disorder. Those handprints inspire the entire team and power them and the RFC car to the top of the podium.
The Racing for Children's Dinner & Auction is the premiere event held at the Barber Motorsports museum during Indy Grand Prix weekend. The purpose is to raise funds for childhood cancer and blood disorder research and patient programs at Children’s of Alabama. The platform attracts world renowned celebrities, executives, champion racing drivers, political dignitaries, and features medical leaders at Children’s of Alabama and UAB, but the kids are the true stars of the show.
