Le Mans | Porsche brings back Racing For Charity for charity

Porsche will once again race for a good cause at the 92nd 24 Hours of Le Mans on June 12-16.

Like last year, each lap completed by the three official 963s fielded by Porsche Penske Motorsport will earn selected charities a donation of 750 euros. The total amount raised will be donated to three charities that support seriously ill children and their families.

The three deserving organizations are Kinderherzen retten eV, Interplast Germany eV and the Ferry Porsche Foundation.

In 2023, on the occasion of the Centenary of the 24 Hours, the trio of Porsche 963s ran a total of 733 laps for a donation of €549,750, which Porsche then increased to €911,000. The initiative earned Porsche the 2023 DHL Sustainable Endurance Award.

Kinderherzen retten eV 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 eV used the donation to fund medical missions in Tanzania and Mozambique, among others, and the Ferry Porsche Foundation 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 automaker currently leads the FIA ​​World Endurance Hypercar Manufacturers Championship ahead of Toyota and Ferrari.
