Dylan Race for Recovery 2016 Roush Ford Mustang Charity Donation

When tragedy strikes, communities rally together. Acquaintances become neighbors as they lend a hand to make a difference; local businesses show that they’re not about making money but rather supporting the community. And it’s through this collaboration that lives are changed.

A Phoenix, Arizona Ford dealership has shown what a good neighbor truly is when it stepped in after one of the city’s residents sustained catastrophic injuries.  And here’s how a 2016 Roush Stage 3 Ford Mustang is taking part.

Agent for Good: Learn more about the dealership that is helping Dylan recover

Back in July, seven-year-old Dylan was thrown from a boat while on vacation. His arms, leg, and jaw received seemingly-irreparable damage, but the young Arizonian’s spirit of strength and endurance has set him on an incredible road to recovery. Yet, sadly, even recovery comes at a price–medical bills, prosthetic, rehabilitation, and therapy costs.

The family and community were in shock after this tragedy, but they rallied together to facilitate a miraculous recovery. Local car dealership Sanderson Ford stepped in and donated a 2016 Roush Stage 3 Ford Mustang (MSRP $69,215) to help raise funding for his recovery. The dealership is raffling the Mustang in the community, giving 100% of proceeds to Dylan’s medical bills.

According to Sanderson Ford, the custom-tuned Roush Stage 3 Mustang includes:

  • 670-horsepower 2.3-liter TVS supercharger
  • ROUSH Quad-Tip exhaust
  • “R7” aerobody
  • Single adjustable coilover suspension system

So, throughout the month of October to mid-November, the dealership is taking the special Mustang around the community to promote buying raffle tickets to win it. While the final winner of the Mustang won’t be picked until November 14th, the real winner here is Dylan, whose community cares so much. May we all be such sacrificial neighbors to those in need.
