Helping Sick Kids with Exotic Cars
Seeing a supercar drive down the street can be an exciting experience for anyone. Getting to ride in one can be a once in a life time chance, which is exactly what a Portland, Oregon couple is giving to sick children in the local area.
Eric and Amity Peterson, who own a successful technology consulting firm, are passionate about cars and have a collection that would rival any car museum. Instead of just letting the cars sit in their garage, the Peterson’s have created Dream Drives for Kids to help give back and make a difference in the lives of sick children. By giving them a ride in a supercar, Peterson hopes to take their mind off of their life-threating disease.
Peterson give the kids much more than just a ride in a car, he gives the entire family a whole experience. The kids are able to choose any car from his collection, including a 1965 A.C. Cobra Superformance replica, 2006 Ferrari F430 F1 Spider, 2008 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, 2013 McLaren MP4-12C Spider, and more. Once they choose their favorite car, Peterson will tell them all about the car and take them for a 30 minute ride. The entire experience is caught on video, with plenty of pictures taken as well. All the families get to keep a copy of the pictures and videos to help remind them of fun times while they are getting treatments.
The Peterson’s are also teaming up with local hospitals in the Portland area to provide one dream drive a week. Following in Eric and Amity’s footsteps, many other exotic car collectors are starting their own Dream Drives for Kids chapters.
