The Make-A-Wish foundation does extraordinary things for children all over the country, even here in Connecticut. Putting smiles on faces all the time. This story is out of Michigan.
A seven year old boy named Keegan Williams has been ice skating since he was three. Sadly he hasn’t been able to do it as much lately since he was diagnosed with leukemia in 2018. So Make-A-Wish got to work and did something really cool for him.
They showed up at Keegan’s house and built him a little hockey rink in his backyard. The surprise reveal was last Friday. They even arranged for the mascot of the local hockey team, the Grand Rapids Griffins, to play goalie so he could hit a few shots.
But the best news of all is that Keegan is getting well and should finish his cancer treatments in April! Keep skating and shooting those slapshots Keegan we’re all pulling for you.
