NORTH SCITUATE, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island State Police are hosting an event to show off a new exhibit inspired by an 8-year-old boy whose dying wish to become famous drew international attention.

The Westerly Sun (https://bit.ly/2dknPil ) reports the event will take place Thursday evening at state police headquarters in North Scituate.

The traveling exhibit, “Project 3.8”, includes a photo of Dorian Murray wearing boxing gloves. He died this year after battling a rare form of cancer.

The Westerly boy’s final wish in January to be famous in China took off on social media with the hashtag #DStrong. People and celebrities around the world sent him well wishes.

Nineteen other kids facing pediatric cancer are featured in the exhibit and were shot in the same boxing pose as Dorian to demonstrate their fighting spirit.
