About Mission Hospice Society

The society has been providing compassionate care and support to the dying and bereaved since its founding in 1985. Fundraising is very important to the society because it provides its services free of charge.

All you have to do is purchase your ride tickets to enjoy a few laps around the track and get to meet our local race drivers.
