I know there is probably a better place to put this thread but we really need your help. It is for a little girl with cancer that has been given 2-3 weeks to live by doctors, one of her dreams was to ride in a fast car. If your interested please read this http://horsepowerjunkies.com/forums/showthread.php?t=65617 Please also view http://forums.corvetteforum.com/showthread.php?t=2019636


Thanks for your support, this will take place Sat around 1pm at exit 53 just south of Fayetteville on highway 95. We will all meet up there and go to her house around 2pm.

Once again Thank you for any support

Is this Fayetville, GA, near the airport? If so I can probably get an '09 Viper down there. Or at least a hot camaro.

Im thinking its Fayetville, NC. I read a little on the first link the OP posted and a guy that said he would be there is in Fayetville, NC.

She must be a pretty kickass girl to have that as one of her last wishes. I'm too far away but hopefully things go well, I'm sure they will.

I truely wish this was not on the other side of the country from me. My father has terminal cancer and I can't imagine how painful it must be to see a kid going through that. My prayers are with the family and I hope this event is everything this little girl wants. Godspeed.

GREAT NEWS EVERY ONE, Alli came home from the hospital and is extreamly excited. The mother broke down to tears and the father and brothers can't wait to see all the cars. SO WE ARE A HUGE GO. The family requested that we get every car we can. So if you said you were going to come then please do. The meeting place will be the Cracker Barrel on I95 at highway 53 at 4:00pm tomorrow Saturday the 10th just south of Fayetteville NC. Then we will cruise to the house and take Alli for a ride. Actually the whole family wants to go for a ride. The mother said she is going to double charge the video camera to get all the cars coming down the road. I was asked to plan a route for the ride which I will do my best to get done. I am so excited right now I feel like I am about to fire off a new engine (which we all know is better than Christmas). Any way, when the mother heard about how much money we raised she didn't know what to say except to tell every one a huge thanks. You all are an amazing bunch of people. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT.

This was an incredible event I will post a link for pics ect ect.... There was about 14 or 15 very nice cars that showed up. From vetts to vipers to lambo.

She chose to ride in the lambo LOL big supprise there. We all cruised around and the mother wanted to ride in my car as well as her older sister. They liked gtos back in the day and wanted to ride in a new one so they rode with me as we took about a nice little cruise for around 30 miles. I gave the mom and sister a intersting ride burning lots of rubber and letting them feel 140mph. I didnt want to scare them but it seemed like they were ready for more. They were all very enthusiastic about the entire day and seemed to love every minute of it. They are leaving in the morning for animal kindom and a very nice chunk of change was given to them at their house. Once again like I said I will post pics in the next couple days.

Thanks for all the support guys,

James

I am soooo glad this went off and the little girl got what she wanted. I am sure you all put on a first class event and the family had a great time. My prayers are still with the family and I hope that this little girl gets a shot at life. Something a lot of us take for granted. Great job and I can't wait to see the pics.

ill keep it short and simple. That is awesome guys. Its amazing how sometimes we take for granted what we have. One of the only things she wanted was to ride in a fast car. All it took was a little bit of time from the daily grind and a few nice cars to make her day. You guys rock, makes me proud to be an American.

Couldn't have said it better myself. You guys probably gave her & her family more strength then you'll ever truely realize.

Pretty awesome, wish it would have been closer to my area. But then again nothing is anywhere near South Florida. Good to see the girl got her dream, had it been closer i would have been up for it.
