The Driven Project lends a hand to special kids

The organization gives ‘supercar therapy’ to children who are battling heavy life challenges

-

On Thursday morning at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Las Vegas a group of truly special VIPs got a chance to ride across the auction stage in a supercar. The Driven Project provides special kids with supercar therapy and a chance to be on stage at the iconic classic car auction.

The Driven Project is an international non-profit organization with one goal in mind: to provide ‘supercar therapy’ to children who are battling heavy life challenges,” per a Driven Project release. “We do this by teaming up with local law enforcement agencies across America and Canada to provide once-in-a-lifetime police-escorted supercar experiences.

“The goal is to provide these amazing kids with an adrenaline-filled escape from reality, a boost to help them stay strong through their battles, and create memories they will cherish forever.”

The VIPs embarked on a supercar adventure that began by crossing Barrett-Jackson’s auction block in the passenger seat of a supercar. Each child received a hero’s welcome, were introduced to those in attendance by longtime Barrett-Jackson television personality Rick DeBruhl and took pictures from the block with the supercars. Following the excitement on stage, the VIPs enjoyed a police-escorted cruise down Las Vegas Boulevard in their supercars before they returned to the West Hall for a day of family fun at the auction.

The Driven Project provided smiles, fun and excitement for an amazing group of kids facing an incredibly tough battle. There weren’t a lot of dry eyes in the audience on Thursday morning, but there was hope.
