Make-A-Wish, our chosen charity
Initially this site was started early in 2010 with the idea of having a bit of fun in the serious world of F1. During the winter of 2010 I was approched by UBS with a simple question, "How could they help RunThatTrack to make a charitable difference to a worthwile organisation?". I thought Make–A-Wish® would be appropriate as we have all been lucky enough to follow our dreams to work in F1, so it's a nice fit to be able to help others less fortunate to maybe realise some of their dreams....

Since the start of the RunThatTrack and UBS partnership, UBS has generously donated $1,358,200 to Make-A-Wish on behalf of the RunThatTrack runners. Amazing. I know we have a lot of fun running the track and enjoy the friendly rivalry and inter team competition, but when you stop and think about how much each person and team has raised for the worthwhile Make-A-Wish cause, I think we can all be proud. For each event of the 2013 and 2014 season, Make-A-Wish have shared with us a special wish so that we can see some of the amazing work they do, below are some of the wishes granted over the past 2 years...

About Make-A-Wish...
Make-A-Wish is a charity with a simple purpose - to grant wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions, to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.

Make-A-Wish has become the largest wish-granting organisation in the world and can be found in over 50 countries on five continents. With the help of generous donors and over 30,000 volunteers, Make-A-Wish has granted more than 334,000 wishes worldwide since inception.

Make-A-Wish believe few things can be more important, or more deserving, than giving a seriously ill child the chance to have their wish come true, with all the hope, expectation and happiness that brings. For many families the Make-A-Wish memory can be the last happy memory they have of their child having fun in a magical world, surrounded by family and friends - rather than memories of days and weeks of painful treatments and hospitalisation. The memory of the wish may be of their child laughing and enjoying being a princess or zoo keeper for the day or meeting a favourite celebrity. In years to come, the family can look back and remember that special time.
