It is with heavy hearts that we have had to cancel our annual Race of Remembrance (RoR) this year owing to Covid-19 restrictions. This not only takes away our unique and special remembrance service, but the event has cost Mission Motorsport £50,000 in terms of lost output for beneficiaries and in fundraising.
So, we’re launching Your Race of Remembrance, #YourRoR, an online remembrance service and a series of activities to keep the spirit of RoR alive and commemorate the sacrifices made by service personnel and their families over the Remembrance weekend, 6 – 8 November 2020.
#YourRoR offers a whole new raft of activity giving people a means to engage, fundraise and most importantly, the opportunity to still attend a very special remembrance service.
We’ll be marking the event – what will you do to mark #YourRoR?
For this year’s event, Mission Motorsport is asking supporters what they are doing for Race of Remembrance 2020, asking them to take on challenges or activities that will help the charity to raise funds and commemorate the weekend in their 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 looks set to encapsulate the spirit of Race of Remembrance – despite Covid-19.
Alongside the race itself, and the all-important remembrance service, Race of Remembrance typically involves a supercar event, a Heroes Dinner, Biathlon of Foolishness and offers beneficiaries the opportunity to work in the pitlanes as part of teams and get involved in a race. This year’s event hopes to attract an equally diverse and fun mix of activities and people. On Sunday November 8th, at 11am, as every year, the fun will stop for a special online pitlane service for everyone to join, featuring military personnel, a bugler and a service chaplain.
