CINCINNATI (WXIX) -A Canadian-based car event, the “Driven Project,” came to Cincinnati for the first time to help bring joy to children who are battling physical and mental illness by riding throughout the city in a supercar.

The project was created in 2018 in Vancouver, Canada, to provide 12 Very Important Passengers, VIPs, from the Make a Wish program and area hospitals a chance to ride in a Ferrari or a Mercedes.

The VIPs and the drivers were escorted by Cincinnati police starting at Union Terminal and ending at Jeff Wyler Automotive Family in Milford.

They also cruised by the Ronald McDonald House and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.

“The goal is to provide the children with an adrenaline-filled escape from reality, providing them with a boost to help them stay strong in their battles, and create memories they will cherish forever,” Jeff Wyler officials said.

Chief Elliot Isaac was one of the drivers.
