Mission Motorsport have had to postpone their Race of Remembrance for 2020. Sadly, it’s left the charity with a huge (£50k) hole to try and fill - thus the idea of a geographically distanced, individual celebration was born - #YourRoR.
This year Mission Motorsport is asking friends and supporters what they are doing for Race of Remembrance 2020. Will you take on a challenge or activity that will help the charity to raise funds and commemorate the weekend in our own special way? With a whole host of supporters already signed up to get involved, including Jason Fox, presenter of ‘SAS Who Dares Wins’ who was due to race in this year’s event, #YourRoR is here to encapsulate the spirit of Race of Remembrance - despite Covid-19.
The tough decision to postpone RoR20 was a very difficult call. The event provides the attendees with much more than a race. The coming together, camaraderie and challenge of simply getting through the weekend can easily be translated to a vast array of fundraising ideas, and we do need your help. Mission Motorsport faces a shortfall of £50,000 due to switching off the race - can you be a part of helping us get across the line?
Ideas and fundraisers are already piling in, and beneficiaries, racers and all manner of RoR attendees are leaning in. Some are marking the Remembrance weekend with a feat of endurance, others with ideas from the crazier end of the spectrum – they are behind you all the way in whatever you choose to do! Whatever it is, we welcome everyone’s participation and Mission Motorsport will be joining their community together, safely and online, to commemorate this weekend in true Mission Motorsport style.
They will be live streaming a very special Remembrance Sunday service which we’d love you all to be involved in, details of that will be circulated well ahead of the day.
