Dream Drives for Kids

Dream Drives provides sick and medically fragile children access to amazing exotic cars for an hour-long experience we hope they won't soon forget. Our goal is to create joy by taking the focus off of doctors and disease ... and putting it on Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porsches, Mercedes, and more through a two-hour, fully interactive sports car experience!

Watch a short video about us or learn about the Dream Drive.

The Dream Drive

The child's Dream Drive consists of a garage tour, the selection of their "dream car" from an amazing collection of sports and exotic cars, and a forty minute drive through the hills around Portland. Families get to follow in a similarly amazing car, and along the way we take photos and record video to preserve the memory.

Our Dream Riders

Dream Drives for Kids has been active for nearly a year and have helped dozens of "Dream Riders". We support a wide range of childhood diseases and are actively expanding through partnerships with OHSU Doernbecher Children's Hospital, Shriners Hospital for Children, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Children's Cancer Association, and more!

Meet some of our "Dream Riders" or learn about the Dream Fleet.

Our Dream Fleet

The Dream Drives fleet has representatives of some of the most iconic supercar brands from the past 20 years including Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, McLaren, Lotus, Mercedes, and BMW. Unlike some collectors ... we love to drive our cars and you can see how much fun we have on our Facebook page and YouTube channel.

Dream Drives for Kids is currently self-funded by the Peterson family but we are always looking for help from philanthropists and organizations who share our vision for helping children and families. At the current time we are looking for a small number of national sponsors for our work to help offset the costs associated with our expanded facility.
