2023 KART 4 KIDS PRO-AM RACE RAISES $282,000 FOR
JOHNS HOPKINS ALL CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL
The 12th Annual Kart 4 Kids Pro-Am Race was held at Andersen Race Park in Palmetto, FL on March 1, 2023 featuring professional drivers alongside amateur teams to raise $282,000 for Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital.
IMSA sportscar driver and St. Petersburg resident, Sébastien Bourdais headlined the event along with drivers from the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, IMSA, and World Challenge and other racing series.
In the race’s history, more than $1.6 million has been donated to provide critical, patient care equipment for Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, the Kart 4 Kids Relief Fund that provides support for staff, patients and families and the Kart 4 Kids Concussion Initiative which is conducting ground-breaking research on concussions in children. The research is changing the trajectory of concussion recovery and survival in children and adults.
“Collaboration between Kart 4 Kids Concussion Initiative, Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital and INDYCAR has already led to some incredible discoveries that will change motorsports for the better,” says Kart 4 Kids president, Chris Russick. “Findings were presented at a global concussion conference in 2022 and this initiative has the potential to help a lot of people worldwide.”
