The Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer (AHF) is returning as an official charity of the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) at the IMSA Sportscar Weekend at Road America this weekend, the organization announced.
As part of the IMSA SportsCar Weekend on Aug. 3-6, AHF has organized two auctions to raise funds to support families facing pediatric cancer.
Fundraisers include a silent auction, scheduled for Friday and Saturday, Aug. 4-5, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., in the IMSA Merchandise Tent. This silent auction will offer a variety of racing items, from artwork and memorabilia to autographed racing gear and used sports car parts.

Additionally, AHF has secured two exclusive hot pit tours that will be included in the auction, and will give the winners a chance to watch the start of the race from the driver and team pit.
Further funds will be raised for AHF families with motorsports artist Roger Warrick, who will take the stage at the Corvette Corral for a live painting session on Saturday, Aug. 5, at 11 a.m. Warrick’s artwork will then be auctioned Sunday at 1 p.m. in the Corvette Corral, the organization said.
“Being an IMSA Proud Charity gives us an exceptional platform to highlight our mission and make a significant impact in the lives of children and families affected by pediatric cancer,” said Amy Jo Osborn, CEO and co-founder of the Austin Hatcher Foundation. “Thank you to everyone within the IMSA community, teams, drivers and corporations. Because of you, we are able to raise crucial support for families to receive the vital resources needed during a cancer journey.”
