A group of off-road racing cancer survivors will raise awareness on breast cancer at a local event.
Rapid Access Cancer Expense Aid (Raceaid) is an all-women's nonprofit cancer survivor group that financially assists off-road racers while they are undergoing cancer treatment. The group will be at the 2019 Lucas Oil Off-Road Expo, which will take place at the Pomona Valley Fairgrounds Saturday and Sunday, to promote breast cancer awareness.
According to a press release, the group helps racers who need immediate financial assistance in paying for their bills or childcare.
The group’s pink race cars will be on display at their booth. Attendees will be able to buy pink ribbons, write the name of a loved one who has passed away due to cancer or of a survivor, and place a ribbon on a race car.
