Recovering little hands helped transform the one-of-a-kind Explorer Sport.

There's any number of Fords that are probably currently being modified somewhere in America and around the world – Explorers among them. But this one wasn't upgraded by an aftermarket firm. This was customized by a group of pediatric cancer patients.

Ford donated the 2019 Explorer Sport to the Austin Hatcher Foundation, which was formed to help children battling the illness, and was named after a newborn who died from an inoperable brain tumor. The kids under the foundation's wing worked (quite literally) hands-on to make the sport-ute look just how they wanted, right down to the kayak on the roof.
