The local IndyCar race has worked with charity and community organizations for 25 years. In fact the free Friday admission continues in 2012 sponsored by the Ontario Honda Dealers Association in support of Make-A-Wish Canada.

Relay participants will run or walk the course in support of the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign to help kids in the community to get active and healthy they will also get a free Saturday general admission ticket to the Honda Indy Toronto.
