On Sunday 10th August, I had the amazing opportunity to tick something special off of my bucketlist which I had dreamed of for a long time – to be able to connect my Chasing my Dreams venture, and raising funds for SBH Qld – to one of my biggest passions and that which started off this whole crazy adventure of mine – motor racing/cars! I received an invitation to attend the 6th Annual Pacific Ford & FPV Total Performance Car Show on the Sunshine Coast Qld, to represent Chasing my Dreams, and SBH Qld – to hold a raffle on behalf of this amazing charity. WOW..what an incredible opportunity this was! Thank you once again to Greg Manchester and the Team from Pacific Ford Maroochydore, for inviting me along with my little venture, to proudly once again support and give back to SBH QLD (Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Queensland) at their amazing Annual Pacific Ford & FPV Total Performance Car Show. An amazing amount of funds were raised – $343.55, which will go directly towards supporting people living with these two disabilities!
What made this day even more special was that V8 Supercars young Superstar Chaz Mostert was making an appearance – and he was also going to be drawing the Raffle winners – Wow! My little venture, being helped along by such an amazing young man as Chaz Mostert – a man who is out there, Chasing his Dreams, with everything he has got! It was brilliant to once again meet and chat with Chaz, and have him personally draw the Raffle, and sign and present the 3 prizes to the winners! (not to mention, having him sit IN my car, sign the interior…and sit with him on the front of my car for a photo – wow!)
Congratulations to all the winners on the day – and thank you all once again for your generosity!
Thank you also to Ford Performance Racing for the donation of the FPR Merchandise, as the prizes for the raffles.
And a special thank you to Chaz Mostert for being involved in this special part of the Car Show for me, and my fundraising for SBH Qld! 🙂
Chaz is Chasing his Racing Dreams!
Chaz Mostert is such an awesome young man who, at 21yrs of age, is out there, in his own words, ‘really enjoying being out there Chasing my Dreams!’ (this is one of the very first things he said to me the first time I met him in 2013 – and this was made even more special to hear from him, as at the time he didnt know of my journey I was on in my own life). Listening to his Q&A session was brilliant, he also spent time with his fans – he is such a great young man who is out there, living his passion – something I absolutely LOVE seeing in others!.
What an incredible tick off the bucketlist this was – such a special day, and one I had been wanting to happen for a while now, just waiting for the right opportunity to present itself – with my love of cars (and this Car Show in particular, which is why it was so special for me to be there today in this way), my admiration of Chaz Mostert, with proudly representing Chasing my Dreams, and SBH Qld, and being around a number of people I personally know, from the ‘car community’ (such fun people who are so full of heart, and passion for what they do in their lives) – I was really, truly in my Bliss!! It was all a little surreal, really!
Anything is Possible….when you visualise the opportunities you want to make happen in your life!
