Kids on Track

IMG_20160423_105419785The Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama came to the Barber Motorsports Park in April. The families of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama had a chance to participate in the Kids on Track event by Hi-Tide. Two sisters who are guests at the House, Maddy Kate and Abigail (and their parents) got to enjoy the day at the race track and meet some pretty cool dudes! The girls had a great time getting to see the action and were given the red carpet experience. They were worn out by the end of the day, but it was a day they will never forget.

Kids on Track is dedicated to lifting the spirits and inspiring the dreams of children throughout the country by providing them with unique access to IndyCar racing events in the Mazda Road to Indy racing series. We can say that this day is definitely one that lifted Abigail’s spirits! Maddy Kate was the perfect big sister for the day — she helped her parents and made sure Abigail was having fun. When she got back to the House, she could not wait to tell everyone about her day and how much fun she had!

Abigail and her family are frequent guests of RMHCA. You can read their full story and learn more about Abigail and her sister Maddy Kate by reading: Sisters Who Need to be Together.

We are happy to be able to partner with great organizations to provide outings like this one.

Also at the Honda Indy Grand Prix, we were able to raise funds for our House. There are times that we are given the opportunity to volunteer at events and are in return granted a contribution to go towards our mission. The Grand Prix was one of those events — thank you to all the individuals who worked the Kids Zone on Sunday to help RMHCA raise funds! If you are interested in volunteering for RMHCA, contact Emily Wright, our new Volunteer Coordinator at 205-638-7372 or
