Jackson's wish fuels future

Jackson loves cars, and wished to be a racing car driver more than anything… go kart style!

Meeting a legend

Jackson is fighting acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. To get him really revved up in the lead up to his racing experience, he met with Formula One superstar Daniel Ricciardo, to find out what it really takes to be a professional racer. 

Jackson was clearly paying attention to Daniel’s tips; he put in a cracking drive to finish first earning top spot on the podium in front of his fan club of family, friends, and Make-A-Wish volunteers.

And the post-race celebrations? A go kart themed birthday cake of course.

Revved up for the future

The next morning Jackson’s parents woke up at 6am and couldn’t find him anywhere. After searching the house they found him in the garage pretending to be a racing car driver, with a massive smile on his face! Priceless.

Jackson’s parents described his entire wish journey as incredible; and said it will shape Jackson’s future and play a big part in the rest of his life.

“Our son is beyond happy. Jackson’s wish has raised his spirits so much… it’s beautiful.”
