Quad City Corvettes Raise Money for St. Jude Children's Hospital

A motorcade of Corvettes recently made its way slowly down the interstate from Illinois to Tennessee.

The hours racked up behind the wheel of the cars, however, were nothing compared to the emotions of their drivers and the joy of the children once they reached St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis.

The Corvette owners were participating in the first-ever St. Jude Corvette Drive in early May and wound up raising $50,000 for the hospital.

In Honor of Evan Thomason: 10th Annual Corvette Forum Fundraiser for St. Jude

Evan Thomason was 10 years old when he lost his battle against cancer on September 22. While the medical and research staff at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital was not able to save Evan, they managed to give him five years he might not have otherwise had with family and friends.

With the blessing of his mom Melissa, Corvette Forum will dedicate its fundraising efforts for St. Jude during the next year to the memory of Evan, who touched so many people with his courage, positive attitude and joy for living. Some of you had the chance to meet Evan and Melissa when you visited Memphis for the annual Corvetteforum visit to St. Jude, others know about him from what they have read about Evan on Corvette Forum. For those who didn’t know Evan, this thread, and this video will give you some insight.
