Children’s Wish Ride-Along 2012
Children coping with a life threatening illness had a unique opportunity to experience the thrill of riding in real racing and exotic cars around a world famous track on Thanksgiving weekend.
In association with The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada, Pfaff Auto Group Inc. and Mosport Park, Doncaster Racing hosted this private event in support of Children’s Wish and the children and families the organization serves.
The event, Children’s Wish Ride-Along, is in its 20th year and was attended by many of the regular staff, volunteers and members of 6th Gear Events, who helped provide cars, drivers and plenty of enthusiasm as children and their families enjoyed track rides in anything from the wrecker/breakdown truck and a police squad car (complete with lights and sirens!) right through to a selection of high performance road and race cars. In addition to joining in the on-track activities 6th Gear Events had the pleasure of providing lunch for close to 300 people that participated in this fun and memorable day for the children.
6th Gear Events would like to thank everyone that attended and in particular extend thanks to the regular 6th Gear attendees that came along to assist us through the day. It was great to see the smiles and excitement as children clambered in and out of the cars. Photographs of the day are available here and anyone interested in joining in with any events of this type are encouraged to contact The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada.
