Your Ride Is Here gives cancer patients a ride to treatment in style
Ken Adams noticed a large number of cancer patients who were forced to take public transportation or rely on friends and family to make it to treatments while he was waiting for his own doctor. Adams then hatched the idea for volunteers to help get those patients from home to the hospital, and Your Ride Is Here was born.
Patients get to ride in everything from vehicles like the Aston Martin Rapide to the Chevrolet Camaro and even the Ferrari Enzo. For patients who may be going through some of the darkest days of their lives, the chance to ride in some of the world's greatest pieces of engineering is also a chance at a valuable smile.
We've been plenty guilty of balking at supercars in the past, and while they remain firmly out of grasp for the vast majority of the human race, they also represent just what mankind is capable of with the right motivation. We're just glad to see some of their owners have a similarly impressive capacity for compassion.
If you don't own a supercar but still want to help, Your Ride Is Here relies entirely on donations, which can be made here. They've also made an excellent video that best explains their purposes, which can be viewed farther down the page.
