For the first time in its 16-year run, the top earners of the annual Rides to Remember charity event will ride shotgun during the final laps around the Atlanta Motorsports Park track with a renowned Ferrari racecar driver, currently dubbed “The Pony.”
The Pony is a play on a mysterious driver from a popular British television show. The competition to ride with The Pony will pit Rides to Remember drivers and major fundraisers against each other to help raise $200,000 for CURE Childhood Cancer (CURE), Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities (ARMHC) and Camp Sunshine.
“The addition of The Pony will bring even more smiles to the children that deserve it most,” Ferrari of Atlanta General Sales Manager Craig Forbes said. “We are always looking for ways to make the day as special as possible while helping us reach our fundraising goal of $200,000. We look forward to The Pony’s debut and to our winners and attendees finding out who is really behind the wheel.”
The identity of The Pony will be revealed at Rides to Remember on Sept. 10 at the Atlanta Motorsports Park. The event helps pediatric cancer patients forget their day-to-day struggles by giving them the opportunity to take hot laps in exotic cars.
