M E D I A A D V I S O R Y - PRIVATE RIDE-ALONG DAY FOR WISH KIDS AT MOSPORT

Race Car Drivers Devote Day to Making Wishes Come True!

AJAX, ON, April 15 /CNW/ - Doncaster Racing will be hosting a fun-filled day for wish children. The private event is being planned in association with The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada, Pfaff Auto Group Inc. and Mosport Park. The special day has been created to give children coping with a life threatening illness the opportunity to meet drivers and ride in real racing and exotic street cars. Ferraris, Porsches and Aston Martins are just a few of the cars being driven by such notable professional drivers as Jeff Pabst.

Each year, the Canadian motorsport community rallies together to provide a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for this special group of children. Participants at all levels of Canadian racing bring their equipment and dedicate their time and money in organizing this wonderful adventure.

The event raises funds for Children's Wish and goes towards granting the most heartfelt wish to a child coping with a life threatening illness.

When:   Sunday, April 17th, 2011
Where:   Mosport Park, Bowmanville, Ontario
Time:    9:00 am to 4:00 pm

The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada 

Each year, thousands of Canadian children between the ages of 3 and 17 are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.  Since 1984, The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada has worked tirelessly to grant exceptional wishes to over 16,000 children and their families.

This year, Children's Wish expects to grant 1,000 new wishes and is proud to have never refused a wish to an eligible child, and with the help of volunteers and generous donors, is able to grant nearly three wishes every day.  Each wish is an individual adventure, carefully structured to meet the needs of a particular child and family. The Foundation is a grassroots charity with chapters in every province and territory.  Visit www.chidrenswish.ca.
