Jhett's Formula Drift adventure

~Jhett is a very reserved teenager with an immense love of racecars! When we met him for his initial wish visit it was very clear that racecars would definitely be part of his wish and indeed they were. Jhett was passionate about going to the Formula Drift Pro taken part in Long Beach LA.

On March 23rd, 2019 we surprised Jhett at the Ottawa-Gatineau International Auto Show that his wish would be coming true! He and his family were flying to LA for his dream event.

Here is what Jhett’s mother had to say about Jhett’s wish experience. “So much deep gratitude for helping make Jhett’s wish come true. We had the best vacation we’ve ever had together. Everyone we met and everything we did, made us all feel like we were incredibly special. Thank you for everything that you did to facilitate such an incredible experience. WestJet at YYZ were particularly amazing. We were escorted through the terminal and treated like we were royalty through the whole flight. The entire experience at Formula Drift was incredible and Jhett was in heaven the whole time. Ryan Tuerck was so kind and generous with his time - they had a really great conversation. The entire VIP experience was really cool.  The entire experience has been incredible- the video camera gift, the flights, limo (and really great and sweet drivers), formula drift, hotel, great food experiences, the car show reveal... all left us feeling incredibly lucky and special, happy and excited. Jhett meeting Ryan Tuerck and other drivers during autograph signing, made him excited about life and sparked his dreams of someday drifting too. Thank you so very much! Such an incredible experience.” Michelle (Jhett’s mom)


Thank you to Westjet, Sony, TuGo Insurance, Greater Los Angeles Make-A-Wish chapter for helping Jhett’s wish come true. A special thank you to luxaire HVACfor adopting his wish!
