UTVUnderground.com's Joey "Joey D" DiGiovanni, in partnership with racer RJ Anderson and several industry partners, teamed up with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to surprise a young boy who is battling cancer.
Blake Level, an 8-year-old from Oregon, wished to "burn rubber with RJ and Joey D..." The Make-A-Wish Foundation brought the Level family to Southern California and then surprised them with a trip to Glamis to spend the weekend riding with Anderson's and DiGiovanni's friends and families.
On UTVUnderground.com, DiGiovanni described the planning process: "We set out to give Blake the best weekend of riding that we could but we knew that to really push him over the top we had to get him behind the wheel of a machine. So together, RJ and I reached out to our friends at Polaris and worked to obtain a brand new 2017 Polaris RZR 570! We were going to blow him away with the ultimate surprise."
DiGiovani thanked all those who helped make Blake's wish come true: the Level family; the Make-A-Wish Foundation; RJ Anderson; UTVUnderground.com; Polaris RZR; Attitude RV; Pro-Armor; Walker Evans Racing; Whip-Tech LED; UTV Wolfpack; Tommy Gun Images; All Star Signs; Troy Lee Designs; Active Screen Printing; Brian Borland & American Powdercoat; Devin Adkins & The Glamis Beach Store; Frankie Barouti & Giant RV; Dave Kuskie & Fullerton Sand Sports; Cecil Hsu & GRID Off-Road; Danny G & VANS; Carlos Quinteo; David Ripka; Aaron, Amy, and Seth Quintero; Camille, Mia, Enzo & Cristian DiGiovanni; Mitch Guthrie Jr.; Clay Millican; Jason Difuccia; and Matt Boone.
