Make-A-Wish Grants a Child with Cerebral Palsy Her Wish Come True

Child with Crebral Palsy Gets Her Wish Granted to Go To Disney World

WEST VALLEY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) -- A West Valley high school come together to make a girl's dream come true.
The Make a Wish Foundation of Utah along with Hunter High School made it all happen.

Students raised thousands of dollars so 18-year-old McKelle Baldwin from Draper with cerebral palsy can go to Disney World.

Amber Bodon, McKelle's mother, "She's obsessed with Frozen especially Anna. She has a suitcase by her bed wanting to go to Disney World to meet her."

To make that happen, Hunter High School students were subjected to some interesting tasks to raise money.

At a Make a Wish student assembly, students ate raw onions, dyed their hair, and threw pies in teachers' faces.

Student, "I think it's awesome. She gets to go to Disney World and live her dream."
 
Bodon, 'when I saw the cup being passed around and the dollars being put in...there's been 100 times where she's almost died. This takes away the pain for my family and her pain go away. It's pretty neat."

Ely Baldwin, McKelle's brother, "everything these people are doing for my sister is awesome and humbling."

Bodon, "she's in heaven. She's feeling thankful. Today her disability does not exist."

The students raised about $5,000. McKelle will be heading to Disney World in January.

McKelle is one of 190 children in 2016, whose dreams came true because of the Make a Wish Foundation of Utah.
