Great story, great pics, great cause, great way to make a little boy have a happy day............................................... ...............I only wish I could have been there to see it. Thanks for sharing it with us.

These Camaros are Amazing in the way they affect us and those around us. Thanks Chevrolet for bringing our "friends" (our wonderful Camaros) into our lives.

Very cool story.

Reminds me of a long story that's going to get shortened.
Went to a test and tune at local drag strip. After a few runs a guy comes up and says "it's my sons 17th bday, what would it take to get you to take him down the track." My response was "nothing, get in." I let him keep the time slip of course.

Point is kids love Camaros. Mine is black so they don't call it Bee, but definitely just need to embrace it if you have one.
Check out Alabama Camaros, for Camaro enthusiasts all around Alabama

Very touching story, and congrats on organizing such a successful event!

Keep us updated on the father of that little boy. That is so incredibly sad that the doctors can't figure out what is wrong.

Touching story! Really gave me the goosebumps. It gives me hope for the world knowing that some people are so nice, and truly care about others. Great pictures, by the way. My favorite is the one of the kid sitting in front of "bumblebee". So glad you had a chance to help out your local military shelter. (thats what I got out of it, at least.)
