Several Queensland Make-A-Wish kids have lent Porsche Carrera Cup Australia driver Fraser Ross a hand in designing a very unique car livery in the lead up to his race at the Castrol Gold Coast 600.
Fraser, a passionate ambassador for the children’s charity, invited a group of wish children to help come up with the new design, with each colouring in a special picture representing their recently-granted wish.
Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life threatening illnesses, giving them hope for the future, strength to face the challenges of their illness, and joy from their incredible wish experience. Each wish is as unique as the child who has chosen it, and the bright, colourful designs gracing Fraser’s Porsche 911 race car are certainly testament to this.
Wishes featured on the car include Sophie’s wish for a dachshund puppy, Maia’s wish for a circus party, Tasman’s wish to go to the snow, Ari’s wish to go on a plane, boat and a train, Isabella’s wish to meet the Australian Diamonds netball team, Lucy’s wish to go on Puffing Billy, Beau’s wish to see dolphins, and Nika’s wish to go to Hamilton Island and play mini golf.
Fraser Ross is looking forward to unveiling the new look Porsche at the Surfer’s Paradise track this weekend.
“Over the last month, these amazing eight kids have taken great care in colouring in their wish pictures. They’ve done such an incredible job, the car looks fantastic,” he said.
“I’m really proud to be an ambassador for Make-A-Wish, and I’m looking forward to showing off the kids’ designs this weekend when I hit the track.”
“I’m also hoping to bring some more awareness of the incredible work Make-A-Wish do for very sick kids and teenagers. As an organisation funded solely on donations, they rely on the support of the community to help make wishes like these come true.”
