Racing for a Reason

In 1997 Ray Evernham established Racing for a Reason in an effort to raise awareness of the need for cancer research and provide an avenue of giving in the fight against blood related cancer in children, specifically leukemia. Ray and his family were touched by this disease when his son, at age one, was diagnosed with leukemia. Today, Ray's son , Ray J, is considered a survivor.

Racing for a Reason is a not-for-profit 501 (c) (3) organization and is devoted to helping those in need and funding the ongoing research to find a cure for cancer. Racing for a Reason supports The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in addition to many other charitable organizations and efforts.
