Exotic Car Charity Run Raises $5,325 For #WhyNotDevin

FRAMINGHAM – A charity vehicle run on Sunday morning, featuring almost 50 exotic cars, raised more than $5,000 for the Suau family of Framingham.

The event, organized by Ted Yerardi, was to support the #WhyNotDevin fund. Devin is a Framingham boy battling DIPG, an inoperable and at the moment incurable brain tumor. His family is hoping he will be the first to defeat DIPG and launched the hashtag #WhyNotDevin.

The vehicles left CJ’s Northside Grill at 10 a.m., travelled through Central Massachusetts, and ended up at Shoppers World, back in Framingham, where the Suau family greeted the drivers. Click here to watch a video of the vehicles leaving Framingham.

Devin’s favorite vehicle was a green 2011 Rossion Q1, owned by Steve Austin, who let the Stapleton Elementary student sit on the hood of the vehicle, said Yerardi.

“I’m speechless with all the support from my car friends and family,” said Yerardi, who said the event raised $5,325.

“My favorite part of the day was taking Devin for a ride in a Ferrari. I just want to run the block, but when I gave her the gas and it was really loud he got very excited,” said Yerardi.
