Toronto, Ontario – The Victory Lap Charity Program, which raises funds for the Children’s Miracle Network, will visit locations across seven provinces to raise awareness and more than $100,000 for the 14 children’s hospitals in Canada affiliated with the Network.
The program is led by Tide and Walmart, with the support of numerous other leading brands.
Professional race car driver Andrew Ranger, ambassador for the program, will visit 21 Walmart locations with his No. 27 Tide/Walmart race car, beginning in Montreal on May 22.
“I have been involved with the Victory Lap Program from the very beginning, and it has been such a pleasure to meet so many of the children and their families that the program is helping,” Ranger said. “As a race car driver, I have my share of challenges on and off the track. These kids face much bigger challenges and have taught me why quality healthcare for children is a priority in Canada and around the world.”
Since its inaugural year in 2002, the Victory Lap Charity Program has raised $800,000 from partners, anonymous donors and Walmart shoppers.
