2100 SPORTS CARS – More than 2100 sports cars and 70 motorcycles escort boy to his funeral service.
A funeral procession is usually in foot or motor vehicles from the funeral home to the cemetery. Some people have their dying wish and one of them is to make their funeral procession very unique.
In 2017, there was a funeral procession in Taiwan that features pole dancers performing daring routines in public. The footage of the funeral went viral on social media.
Recently, footage of the sports car funeral procession in Washington, Missouri emerged on the internet. Based on a report from CNN, a teenager who was dying of cancer said that is his last wish.
Alec Ingram passed away on November 7 after battling the treacherous disease for over 4 years. In 2015, he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma.
According to the report, 70 motorcycles and 2,100 sports cars gathered to fulfill the wish of the 14-year-old boy. Organization ‘Sydney’s Soldiers Always’ arranged the event “Sports Cars for Alec.”
The founder of the organization, Dana Christian Manley, also lost her daughter named Sydney to cancer. The organization provides a bucket list for children who were suffering from conditions that can’t be cured.
“When Sydney passed, she had a motorcycle escort like this one but with 3,500 motorcycles… when Alec saw Sydney’s escort, he said, ‘That’s really cool, but it would be even better with sports cars,’ and that’s why we organized it,” said Manley.
Based on the report, she recruited thousands of sports cars to escort Alec Ingram to his funeral service. Drivers from Florida, New York, California, Michigan, and Indiana attend Alec’s funeral procession.
“I spoke with Jen (Alec’s mom) at the dinner after the funeral, and she said, ‘I couldn’t keep it together trying to read those signs, it was so overwhelmingly good for me to see how much my boy was loved,’” said Manley.
