Demaras Racing wants to take a moment to shine some light on Kart4Kids Pro-Am Kart Race which raises funds for Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital.
Kart4Kids has been able to provide Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital with “Angel Eyes” cameras so families can watch inside the patient rooms when they aren’t at the hospital, a Sonosite Ultrasound to help with accurate placement of IVs in babies, a Giraffe Omni Bed for NICU patients as well as a Transport Tecotherm device, three portable EEG units and one ECMO unit.
IndyCar racer Sebastien Bourdais headlined the event with sports car ace James French also competing. A group of nearly 40 amateur kart racers signed up to compete against the pro drivers in the endurance race. A schedule conflict with Indianapolis 500 testing taking place this weekend kept some drivers away, but previous participants such as Scott Dixon, Helio Castroneves and Tony Kanaan still sent their support.
