HURST Jeepster Commando Built by Pediatric Cancer Patients Raises $225,000 After Two Trips to Auction
Jeep Sold at Leake Auto Auction in Tulsa, where it raised an additional $75,000
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (June 12, 2019) - The Tulsa Leake Auto Auction at the River Spirit Expo came to a notable close this past weekend as a 2017 HURST Jeepster Commando was sold for a prodigious $75,000. The Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer worked with pediatric cancer patients to assemble and modify this exact Jeep through their Industrial Arts Therapy program.
The patients and their families utilized parts donated by Omix-ADA to dramatically modify the Jeep that was graciously donated to the foundation’s Industrial Arts Therapy program by Mt. View Auto Group in Chattanooga. The build events were hosted by family-owned Truck ‘N Trailers USA in Chattanooga and gave children a chance to boost their creativity, learn new skills, practice therapy exercises, and most importantly, have fun.
