Who are these Athletes Anyway?
November 2013
Our Beginning

Mike Rowe founded 11th Hour Racing as a grassroots effort after taking care of a 35-year-old woman with stage four breast cancer who could not afford the oxygen she needed at home. 

The idea? to create a group of athletes and medical professionals that would race in order to raise money for patients and their families when they could no longer pay their bills.

December 2014
11th Hour Racing formed, comprised of 19 athletes from Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.

Fundraising begins for a family whose 41-year-old father was given a terminal diagnosis. 

With a wife and three children at home, they were no longer able to afford the most basic necessities.
