Levi catches the big one

Levi's wish to have a pontoon boat

“ I’m glad I got it. I don’t have to wait for anybody - now I can do it all on my own...this is amazing. ”


- Levi

To 20-year-old Levi from Okeechobee, a wish was a way to gain independence. Battling spina bifida and kidney disease, and confined to a wheelchair, he is somewhat limited in what he can do. An outdoorsman, he loves to fish from the dock but he wanted to do more. Levi wished to have a pontoon boat because he can leave the dock behind. Levi was thrilled to receive his 18-foot-long red pontoon boat and simply said, “I’m glad I got it. I don’t have to wait for anybody - now I can do it all on my own...this is amazing.” The best part is that now Levi can go fishing whenever he likes. “Make-A-Wish has made one of his dreams come true and we’re forever grateful,” his mother said.
