This year, The Race is fundraising for Great Ormond Street Hospital as part of our commitment to having a positive impact on the lives of others beyond the world of motorsport.

Great Ormond Street Hospital is a charity close to our hearts and specialises in caring for children with complex and often life-threatening conditions. Supporting this cause aligns with The Race’s values and emphasises the importance of giving back to the community.

The challenges faced by children with serious illnesses highlights the importance of providing them with specialised medical care and support. By supporting Great Ormond Street Hospital our aim is to also help spread awareness about paediatric healthcare needs.

Throughout the year, The Race will be holding a number of events to raise awareness of and funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital, so keep an eye out for these and help us make a positive impact on the lives of children and their families.

Who does Great Ormond Street Hospital help?

Every day, around 750 seriously ill children and young people are seen at Great Ormond Street Hospital from all over the UK.

Every day, young lives hang in the balance as patients, families and staff battle the most complex illnesses. Every day, the brightest minds come together to achieve pioneering medical breakthroughs that change the lives of thousands of children - and change the world.

Despite the greatest challenges a child can face, the hospital is a place where being sick does not always mean being sad. And it’s a place where you’ll find - today and every day - some of the bravest people you could ever meet.

This extraordinary hospital has always depended on charitable support, and every day is a chance for you to make a difference.

Discover the impact we make with your help and support.

Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity supports the hospital and its patients by funding four key areas:

  • Rebuilding and refurbishment 
  • Support for families and children 
  • Research into children’s health 
  • Life-saving medical equipment
