With this being the Christmas season, it’s a great time to do a good deed and brighten someone’s day.

Take, for example, the plight of a 48-year-old man named Scott McKenzie, who has been diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease).

His dream had always been to buy a Corvette when he retired, but now that he’s facing just a short time to live because of the ALS, his family decided to see if they could make that dream come true soon.

Already, the staff at Chevrolet Canada had heard about McKenzie and brought him, his wife Theresa, his 18-year-old son Marshall McKenzie, and other family members and friends to the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park where Scott got to take some high-speed laps in a yellow Corvette Z06 driven by racing legend Ron Fellows. He was ecstatic when they came off the track.

In the nine months since he was diagnosed, Scott’s condition has deteriorated greatly, and sadly most patients survive just two or three years.

Huge medical bills have strained the family’s finances, but Marshall is still hoping to make his dad’s dream of owning a Corvette come true before his death. To that end, he has started a gofundme campaign to hopefully purchase a 1990s-era Corvette.

When Scott passes away, the car will be sold and the proceeds donated to the ALS foundation. If enough money isn’t raised in time to buy a Corvette, whatever has been donated will be forwarded to the foundation.
