We\'re sure you can still recall your childhood, when receiving a brand-new die-cast toy car brightened up your day. We\'re also sure that this fascination with toy cars translated to the real thing as you grew older. Now, imagine trying to cheer up a sick kid who loves, well, cars. Sure, we can give him toy cars, but why not make it extra special by showing him real-life automobiles?
Make-A-Wish Foundation Philippines is doing just that, enlisting hill-climb champion and Baguio resident Carlos Anton\'s help to bring happiness to Raineer Allen Malate, an eight-year-old boy who has been diagnosed with Stage III bone cancer and whose right leg has already been amputated.
On May 26, this coming Sunday, at 9:30am, Anton would like to see members of the motoring community bring their cars to the Old Theater parking lot by Scout Hill, across the ice cream parlor, in Camp John Hay. This is to put a smile on the lips of Raineer, who is a big fan of cars.
So, if you\'ve got a nice car--which can be anything from an old but well-restored Japanese station wagon to a contemporary Korean sports coupe to an Italian exotic--and you happen to be in or near Baguio this weekend, we suggest that you drop by the venue to help cheer the boy up. If you reside in Metro Manila and have a really big heart, why not make a road trip for a good cause? And throw in a nice toy car for good measure.
\"Let\'s all help make this boy\'s dream come true by surrounding him with what he enjoys the most,\" Anton told TopGear.com.ph. \"A small amount of your time will go a very long way on Sunday. Just knowing that we are all there for him will help him in the fight for his life.\"
