Formula One winning driver Jenson Button is asking his fans to support him in this year’s London Triathlon on August 1-2 to raise funds for Make-A-Wish UK.

“I’m in a position where I can try and make the kids dream come true, it does give you big satisfaction seeing the little smiles on their faces,” Button says in a promotional video.

“I was at the event in London a few months back, and seeing a few of the kids’ faces is just amazing,” said the seasoned tri-athlete.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation patron also issued a statement, which in part reads, “I have had the pleasure of meeting lots of kids who are supported by the charity at our tests and races. Make A Wish grants magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening illnesses and it is a real privilege to be involved with them. The kids are so inspirational and hopefully we can raise enough money to fulfill as many of their dreams as possible.”
