Local Good News

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – It’s a dream come true for a little boy fighting a serious illness.

5-year old Zain is a Make-A-Wish kid, and Wednesday, all of the Shops at Saddle Creek in Germantown came together to make his wish a reality.

Before the big reveal, Zain had to first go on a scavenger hunt. He had to conduct a science experiment at five different stores to get a clue.

By putting all the clues together, he discovered he’s going to Disney World.

“They were excited to bring him here today, and each of the stores that participated had a little party to meet him and let him know that he’s going to Disney World, to ride all of the rides and do everything else and have all the fun things that kids should get to do,” says MarySusan Asters with Make-A-Wish Mid-South.

Make-A-Wish Mid-South grants wishes for about 280 local kids every year. But say they are already on track to grant more than 300 wishes this year.
