Making a sick child's dream come true is to provide not only hope and joy, but also a reason to keep fighting. Once again this year, the entire team at Auto123.com is supporting the Make-A-Wish Foundation in Quebec.
What kind of dreams are we talking about here? Well, something magical, and something that any normal kid wishes for – a long vacation with their family, meeting an idol, doing a photoshoot, swimming with dolphins, etc.
These kids dream of leaving the hospital for good and fully enjoying what life has to offer.
Since we believe that anything's possible, three teams of riders will take part in the 48-Hour Ride For Wishes on September 14-16, 2012. For this edition of the annual fund raiser, the organizers hope to reach the million dollar mark.

The six members on each team will take turns on Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve in Montreal – and each one has to ride for a minimum of eight hours, day and night, and raise at least $600.
As of today, August 21, we are currently sitting at 63% of our collective goal, which is to raise over $10,000 to make a sick child's dream come true.
