Porsche continues “Racing for Charity” initiative

Porsche continues “Racing for Charity” initiative

Porsche will once again race for a good cause during the 92nd 24 Hours of Le Mans (12-16 June). For every lap completed by its Hypercars, the German marque will donate €750 to charities benefitting sick children and their families.

Like last year, each lap completed by the three Porsche 963 Hypercars fielded by Porsche Penske Motorsport will earn select charities a donation of €750. The total amount raised will then be disbursed to three charitable assocations supporting gravely ill children and their families.

The three worthy organisations are Kinderherzen retten e.V., Interplast Germany e.V. and the Ferry Porsche Foundation. In 2023, at the 24 Hours Centenary, the trio of Porsche 963s covered a total of 733 laps for a donation of €549,750, which Porsche then increased to €911,000. The initiative earned Porsche the 2023 Sustainable Endurance Award by DHL.

Kinderherzen retten e.V. was able to offer heart operations to nine children from El Salvador, Syria, Albania and Afghanistan at the University Medical Center Freiburg in Germany. Interplast Allemagne e.V. used the donation to fund medical missions in Tanzania and Mozambique, among others, and the Ferry Porsche Foundation has continued to provide support to seriously ill children and their families.

At this year's 24 Hours, the #4, #5 and #6 Porsche 963s will once again sport "Racing for Charity" stickers on their liveries. The German carmaker is currently leading the FIA World Endurance Hypercar Manufacturers Championship ahead of Toyota and Ferrari.
