Space Racers and Inspiration4 Bring Beloved Children's Characters on a Spaceflight to Benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

Space Racers are going to space! 

Fans of Space Racers will be able to see their favorite characters go to space in real life! Toys inspired from the show Space Racers will go up to space with the crew on the Inspiration4. Upon their return, the Spacer Racers toys will be auctioned off in an effort to help raise $200 million for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Space Racers plush toys and figures will be sent to space via Inspiration4. When they land back on Earth feathered pilots, Eagle, Robyn, Hawk, Raven, and Starling will be auctioned for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. This 3-day mission will raise $200 million for children's cancer research. 

Inspiration4 consists of four crew members representing leadership, hope, generosity, and prosperity. Each crew member has their own stories representing this historic mission. 🚀

Space Racers Dream Big! 

My son, Rocco, is four and has big dreams! His dream is to fly up to space in a hot air balloon, and visit Saturn. His dream is pretty out there, but look how far we've come! If the Space Racers can do it, he can too. 

Space Racers gets kids excited about space exploration with a mix of helping one another. The show centers on five cadets and their school, Stardust Bay Space Academy where they go on missions to learn about Earth science, planetary science, and astrophysics. Space Racers is available to watch on Netflix.

You can buy Space Racers toys, and download free activities via Space Racers' website. There are also shirts and activity books for sale on Amazon.
