Brandon's Dream Ride
 
Athlete’s Dream Ride Becomes A Reality

Sometimes, it takes the thoughtfulness of others to help make our dreams come true. For Special Olympics Florida athlete Brandon it was the thoughtfulness of Michael Bozzuto, the organizer behind the 2013 Dream Ride, who did just that. 
 
Brandon is what you would call a car guy, so when the 2013 Dream Ride kicked-off in his home town of Palm Beach in August it was a perfect match. The Dream Ride is a 1,300 mile rally that starts in Florida and travels through some of America’s best motorcycling and car roads, culminating in Farmington, CT and raising money all the way for Special Olympics.
 
At the kick-off Brandon’s excitement and enthusiasm for the luxury and antique cars was so infectious that it earned him and his family not only a surprise trip to Farmington, CT but also the chance to ride in his dream car, Ferrari’s fastest car on the road, the F12 Berlinetta. Watch Brandon’s dream come true here.
