1 DECEMBER 2014

Kevin, 15, is currently finishing treatments for leukaemia. During his treatment, Kevin was introduced to remote control cars by a friend of his brother, and it soon became his own passion. Kevin’s fondest wish was to have a remote control vehicle of his own.

On 29 November, Kevin’s wish came true when he was presented a Thunder Tiger remote control monster truck. Painted in Kanner Wonsch blue, with sporty decals, the mini monster truck has the capability of going 100 km/h. Joined by his family and friends, Kevin had the opportunity to test it out at the Luxembourg Model Car Club (LMCC) racetrack, along with 11 of its members, many of whom also brought their own remote control vehicles.

From the vantage point of the control tower, Kevin quickly ran the car through its paces, around the intricate and challenging track, to the delight of a roaring crowd!

A festive atmosphere with blue and white balloons, banners, colorful lights, music, checkered flag and podium provided all the ambience of a racing pit area, while the sounds of racing engines filled the air. A fire, blankets and some snacks took the chill off a cold day.

The wish was sponsored by Clearstream, with 5 of their organization representatives on-hand to also present Kevin a Red Bull racing jacket and matching cap, for the total racer effect. The Food Truck Co. delivered juicy hamburgers for lunch, and the Food Truck employees donated their time free of charge.

Asked about his day, Kevin said “I love the truck! It’s the truck I imagined. I also love the jacket and cap.”

While it was a chilly day, Kevin barely noticed.  He was too busy racing his new remote control truck, laughing with friends and enjoying the day that was his.
