Make A wish grants children their dream come true all over the country.
The wish answered today didn't entail a trip to Disneyland or Washington D.C.
Just simply a ride down a slide.
Jon Schaeffer has the story.
Even with highs approaching the upper 80's a winter storm hit Bismarck's Amusement park and Dakota Zoo today. A winter storm of smiles that is.
(Kayla Foltz/Director of Program Services) "Winter's wish the main point of winter's wish was she wanted to go down the superslide here at the amusement park. She can't communicate verbally but she can communicate through looks and smile sand things like that and her family said she absolutely loves the super slide."
And that wish was granted. With her brother next to her and her dad holding her all the way down the speedy slopes a smile came over winter's face as well as everyone else in the crowd.
(Mason Maloney/Brother) "My favorite part was probably the go carts and her favorite part was probably the slide!"
Along with her morning at the amusement park. Winter was named an honorary girl scout for the day-- she had lunch at Sertoma park then enjoyed the animals at the Zoo. Her family couldn't be happier with all of the support from local volunteers.
(Jennifer maloney/ Mother) "It is the awesomest thing to see all of these people being involved and it is awesome.
Jennifer only has one thing to say to the Make a wish foundation.
Thank you with all our heart and soul for doing this for our daughter. Just to see a smile on her face is just awesome."
You couldn't feel a chill in the air--but more of a warmth in your heart as this winter storm of smiles hit.
Last night the Maloney Family stayed at the Ramkota in Bismarck so that Winter could enjoy one of her favorite activities--swimming.
