Factory Five SEMA Show Booth to Host Austin Hatcher Foundation Mk4 Roadster

The Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer is attending the 2023 SEMA Show as an official SEMA Cares Charity and will be displaying its Factory Five Racing Mk4 Roadster built by cancer patients, siblings and families at the foundation’s Education Advancement Center in Chattanooga, Tennessee, the foundation announced.

For 16 consecutive years, AHF has built up their unique Industrial Arts Therapy Program, working alongside partners to create meaningful experiences for young cancer patients and their loved ones, the organization said. This year’s project is the 16th full car build the foundation has completed since 2006.

The Foundation’s Industrial Arts STEAM Therapy program aims to introduce and educate a STEM-based trade to children of all ages, and treat and improve coordination deficits, behavioral, memory loss, learning and many other deficits as results of childhood cancer for both the affected child and their siblings.

The “No Strings White” Mk4 Roadster with Can-Can Red interior will be on display all week in the Factory Five Racing Booth No. 22453. The roadster features the retro looks of the 427 Cobra with upscaled diamond stitched leather interior, matching leather luggage, handbag, tool roll, and accessories.
