CAF-Raising Money For Charities


Racing 4 Vets

Racing4Vets has helped Veterans gain skills that allowed them to find a new career. These Veterans feel proud and help spread the word about the Racing4Vets mission. 



 Racing4Vets helps service disabled U.S. military veterans get directly involved in motorsports by leveraging the power of the motorsports community. Our mission is to give back to the men and women who have sacrificed and protected us as members of the U.S. Armed Forces, National Guard,  Reserves, and Coast Guard. 


Racing4Vets has two main goals

1) Develop motorsports career training and outreach programs for combat-injured U.S. military veterans.  These programs are specifically tailored to build the skills, education and job connections each individual veteran needs to be successful in his or her pursuit of a career in motorsports.

2) Provide opportunities for disabled veterans to compete in amateur motorsports by obtaining sponsorship, adapted racing gear, mechanical support and relationships with local organizers and racers throughout the U.S.

Racing4Vets is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio.
