The Driven Project made a pit stop in Ladner recently helping to brighten the smiles of youngsters through its ‘supercar therapy.’
Earlier this month, Driven Project held its second ‘Supercar Parade’ throughout the Lower Mainland escorted by the Vancouver Police Department.
The Saturday parade route included Ladner, North Delta, Richmond, Vancouver, Coquitlam, Burnaby and Langley where supporters lined the streets to join in on the fun holding up signs, love, support and smiles.
One of those lucky families was Ladner’s Kutrina Mosch and her children Bex (12), Heather, (12) and Samantha (10).
Mosch said one of her friends in Kelowna who has a child with similar special needs as her son, got a ride through the Driven Project.
“She sent me a message and I sent in an application about six months ago,” she said. “I’ve been following them on Instagram and they [Driven Project] have been doing a lot of amazing things for amazing kids, so I got an email from them a little over a week before they came saying they would be doing this parade party instead of rides for the kids due to COVID-19.”
She said she was contacted by the organizer and they had a great chat about her family, and some of the struggles they have been through.
“He said they would love to come out, do the drive-by and spend some time with my kids,” Mosch said. “It was fantastic. Not only did they treat Bex, but they treated Bex’s siblings as well. Heather got to start the Lamborghini engine, Samantha took a bunch of pictures. The VPD were great. Bex got an award, and they all got goody bags, which was great for the kids. They have all been super happy and excited since this happened.
“It was amazing. I was able to keep it a secret. The kids didn’t know anything about it. They were all in awe of the cool cars. This was the best especially because Bex and Heather had their birthday during COVID and we couldn’t celebrate with family and friends, so it was amazing to get this ‘supercar therapy’ that just made their year.”
