Jalopies for Jackson 2022 was held in Lewisville, IN on May 21, 2022. Known for not only bringing in the sickest rides around, but for also bringing awareness and raising funds for childhood cancer!
Jalopies for Jackson started in 2012 for a young boy named Jackson. Jackson was diagnosed with 3 brain tumors before the age of 8, so the family decided to start a car show to raise awareness but also for the family to help pay it forward for all of the help that they have received. Through many treatments, we are proud to announce that Jackson kicked cancers ass!
We have made sure to attend the show for the past few years, but in 202o COVID affected Jalopies for Jackson just like it did many of the other shows. In 2021, they were torn on whether or not to have a show to continue keeping families and fans safe, so they compromised on a one night cruise in. But this year, the show was back on strong!
With hundreds of vehicles, a great atmosphere, and amazing awards; this show is one we never forget. We especially love the award Jacksons Pick! Congratulations to this years winner!
This show is know for giving back to their community. This year, they were accepting donations for the St. Baldricks Foundation which funds childhood cancer research. They aso had a blood drive truck from the Indiana Blood Center for those who chose to donate blood. Also, those who attended were asked to bring new, unopened Hot Wheel and Matchbox cars so that the family could take those to Riley Hospital for Children.
We are happy that after a two year hiatus, Jalopies for Jackson 2022 is back and better than ever. We had an amazing time and we cannot wait for the 2023 event!
