Mile Matters with J&A Racing
Koby is battling bone cancer, and when he met with the We Promise Foundation, The Chartway Charity, he told them he had a dream to visit the Hot Wheels factory in California. During the post-race party, Koby was called up on stage to learn that he is not only visiting the factory, he will also have the opportunity to design his very own Hot Wheels vehicle. Thanks to the 6,000 participants in the 2019 Chartway Norfolk Harbor Half Marathon Weekend, Koby’s wish came true this year!
Because of participant registration, additional donations, and with the help of We Promise Foundation, Toby’s Dream Foundation was able to send Koby to the Hot Wheels Factory. This brave young man and his family got a behind-the-scenes experience, a private tour of the Hot Wheels garage, and he even worked with Hot Wheels’ talented designers to create his own super-cool Hot Wheels vehicle.
From seeing Koby’s face light up to watching participants cross the finish line, the Chartway Norfolk Harbor Half Marathon Weekend reminds us all of the magic of believing in dreams. Working with foundations like the We Promise Foundation adds purpose and meaning to everything we do.
