Six-year-old Carter from Spokane loves Lightning McQueen from the Disney movie, Cars. For Carter, Cars isn’t just a movie; it’s a distraction that helps him cope with his treatment for Leukemia.
This Friday, Carter will become a true racecar driver himself at home in Spokane with a special Cars-themed send-off celebration. He will race around a go-cart track with his family to kick-off the start to his wish journey. Make-A-Wish® Washington will grant Carter’s wish to go on a Disney Cruise with his family next month.
Friday, September 27th, 5 p.m.
Carter will be presented with an official Cars racecar uniform so he can look and feel just like his hero, Lightning McQueen. He will arrive at the go-cart track, covered with Cars balloons and other Disney-related decorations in honor of him and his wish. Carter and his family will race around the track and celebrate Carter's upcoming wish.
Wonderland Golf and Games Family Fun Center, 10515 N Division Street, Spokane
