Racing for Corey is a non-profit organization established in the memory of Corey Hanchar. Corey lost his fight for life but will live forever in the hearts of those he touched. Corey, through the, was granted his wish with the assistance of many. Racing for Corey will continue to support and raise funds for the Indiana Children's Wish Fund as well as establish relationships with "Wish" granting organizations, for children who suffer from life-threatening illnesses, throughout the country at Indy Racing League events.
Racing for Corey is a program designed to bring together the sport of auto racing and kids suffering from life-threatening illnesses, in hopes of lightening the hearts and minds of these brave kids - if only for a moment - while inspiring the to stay strong and hold onto their dreams. Through Racing for Corey, race-theme events are organized to entertain the wish-granting organizations across the country, with an exclusive "meet and greet" session with celebrity race car drivers.
Over the last three years, over 2,000 children have enjoyed their own racing experience at Indy Racing League events. Events have been held for the children as well as their family members throughout the country. Racing for Corey's goal is to raise funds for the Indiana Children's Wish Fund, a wish granting organization for special Indiana children who suffer from life-threatening illness. The children are between the ages of 3-18 years. Racing for Corey will also provide an opportunity for these special children in Indiana and throughout the country to experience racing, meet drivers, sit in the race cars, and enjoy quality time with the whole family.
Our funding is made possible through the support of corporate donations, individuals, and fund raising events.
