Charity donates racing games to Dartmouth-Hitchcock

Posted: Updated:

Some sick kids at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon are riding in style.

The hospital recently unveiled two "Dream Racers." One is located at CHAD Manchester; the other is at the Medical Center. The $10,000 video game machines were donated by the Speedway Children's Charity, a nonprofit that helps kids in need. The race car is designed to distract, comfort and entertain children waiting for treatment. They help parents, too.

"It makes me feel better because he has been acting more like himself," mom Kerrie Beth Davis said. "He's been in this car probably about five different times today with his dad driving around. He's really feeling much better. Aren't you buddy?"

There are now 25 Dream Racers in children's hospitals across the country.
