Driving his dream

  • Print

As he stepped out of his mom’s vehicle at St. Vital Park, the blindfolded three-year-old had no idea his dreams were about to come true.

When he took off the blindfold, Isaiah, who is battling leukemia, was greeted with a brand-new car.

The Italian-made, Jeep-like Peg-Pérego Gaucho Superpower toy car, complete with a working radio and tool kit, was given to the St. Vital youngster by The Dream Factory.

Isaiah had requested the new wheels and a play structure to share with his siblings — Hannah, 10, and Xavier, 4 — from the charitable organization, which is dedicated to fulfilling dreams for kids who are battling life-threatening illnesses.

On a sunny morning last week, an excited Isaiah — watched by an equally overjoyed group of family and organizers — wasted no time in belting-up and showing off his driving prowess, as he demonstrated some savvy manoeuvres in a picnic spot area in the park in his new wheels. And though Isaiah was focused on perfecting his moves, he was happy to share the driving duties with Xavier.

But not before a few safety tips from Const. Shaun Chornley of the Winnipeg Police Service, who reminded Isaiah of few important rules of the road before handing over the keys.
