Motorized Madness Media Challenge

Date: TBA, July 2020
Time: 9:00am-12:00pm
Location: Children’s Hospital Colorado

The Motorized Madness Media Challenge is a fun-filled morning of exhilarating remote control car racing where everyone is racing for smiles, and ultimately, the end to pediatric cancer.

Hosted in the Emergency Department parking lot at Children’s Hospital Colorado, we create a massive racetrack for remote-controlled cars to zip around while each team competes to be crowned champion. Each four-person team is made up of a pediatric cancer patient, a local media or sports personality, a local race car driver, and one of MAF’s amazing community sponsors. The RC cars go fast and the races are action-packed — join us to cheer on your favorite team!

10th Annual RMVR Race Against Kids’ Cancer

Date: August 1 & 2, 2020
Time: All Day
Location: High Plains Raceway, Deer Trail, CO

The Race Against Kids’ Cancer is an 10+ year partnership between Rocky Mountain Vintage Racing and The Morgan Adams Foundation, which has raised over $1,000,000 for pediatric cancer research. RMVR wanted to do something for its community and found a natural partner in MAF, an organization that has long had other car-centric events and is well known in the Rocky Mountain region’s auto enthusiast community.

You don’t have to be a race car driver to see what all the racing fun is about! The Race Against Kids’ Cancer has something for every spectator!

Ticket to Ride – During lunchtime, race spectators can purchase a ticket to ride on the track with a qualified car & driver to see what it’s like to be out there on the track at high speed. There’s no bigger thrill for the dollar than these rides and you’ll know that the donation you made for this ride will go to help fund pediatric oncology research, It’s a win/win!

Track Tours – Also at lunchtime, spectators can purchase a ticket to take their own personal vehicle for three laps around the complete circuit (at modest speeds controlled by a pace car). This allows race fans to experience the track in their own cars.
