The Policaro Group raises over $140,000 at inaugural Policaro Foundation track day event in support of SickKids foundation
The Policaro Group is thrilled to announce that the Policaro Foundation has raised over $140,000 in their first annual track day event in support of SickKids Foundation.
"This has been a fantastic day," said Francesco Policaro, CEO of the Policaro Group. “The support we have received from our manufacturing partners, business partners, friends and family has been overwhelming. We are very proud to support SickKids Foundation.”
The track day included several thrilling activations including open lapping at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, in which participants took their cars out on the track. Those who opted to keep their vehicles in the parking lot, however, experienced the same on-track experience with hot laps provided by Policaro Motorsport race car drivers in sports cars provided by the groups various dealerships.
Of all the activities offered throughout the day, however, the hot lap sessions in specially modified Policaro Motorsport race cars, driven by their professional race car drivers, including Michael Christensen—who will be racing at Le Mans in a few weeks—proved to be the top attraction. The race cars were specially modified for the event, adding a passenger seat to the usually single-seat configuration.
The Policaro Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to building a brighter and healthier community. The foundation in partnership with SickKids Hospitals is supporting The Policaro Fetal Cardiac Fellowship. The proceeds generated will meet a critical need for the Labatt Family Heart Centre at SickKids by building capacity for Canada’s primary fetal cardiac diagnosis and treatment centre. Trainees who gain experience at SickKids through the fellowship will go on to work in pediatric heart centres worldwide, providing better care and disease management for children across the globe.
