"It's official: my fans, after raising 30 K for my birthday charity auction, have raised 1 million dollars in 7 years by themselves. I'm humbled and inspired by their passion for giving back and I pledge as always to stand beside them as we continue onward and upward."

What was Race to a Million?
We took this fun little spin around our imaginary "race track" to see how fast
we could reach the "$1,000,000 Finish Line" raised by Josh Groban fans.
With lots of giving hearts and a little bit of excitment, the goal was finish the job
started by the fans in 2005 to match Josh's million dollar donation to his foundation.
From October 10, 2008 until March 9, 2011, we joined together in the race of a lifetime
to help children with healthcare, education and the arts through The Josh Groban Foundation.
"I want to personally thank you as always for continuing, without fail, to find creative and wonderful ways to raise money for places where a little bit goes such a long way... I think we can bring that up to the big 1 million... I have so much faith in all of you to make it happen and am so proud of what you've achieved already."

It's up to us to the change.
