The second annual Race To Beat Cancer is one of two major fundraising functions in the 2016 Racing For Cancer campaign. The fifth annual Yellow Party hosted by Beccy and Ryan Hunter-Reay in partnership with AutoNation raised funds for the fight against cancer on May 26 during a lavish gala in Indianapolis, which kicked off race weekend festivities leading into the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500.

About Racing For Cancer
Racing For Cancer is a non-profit organization founded by 2012 IndyCar champion and 2014 Indianapolis 500 champion Ryan Hunter-Reay following his mother's passing from cancer in 2009. Since 2010, Racing For Cancer has been uniting motorsports fans, teams, drivers and sponsors to join in the global fight to beat cancer. Founded with the goal of beating cancer, Racing For Cancer celebrated a successful first four years in 2014 by exceeding its fundraising goals, highlighted in November 2014 when the board, Hunter-Reay and his family had the honor of presenting the Cleveland Clinic Florida, Maroone Cancer Center, with a $2.5-million gift. The generous donation was made possible by top sponsor AutoNation, Inc. and numerous donors nationwide. The cancer center is a first-of-its-kind facility providing comprehensive services under one roof, something Hunter-Reay could not find when he was trying to help his mother. The center's lobby was named in memory of Hunter-Reay's late mother, Lydia Hunter-Reay. Racing For Cancer continues its mission to focus on early detection and prevention by fundraising to support various initiatives consistent with our mission...to simply, Beat Cancer!
