Jimmy wishes to go camping at Watkins Glen International Park

Jimmy* is 16 years old and has had a rough life to say the least. Diagnosed with stage 4 chronic kidney disease at a couple weeks old has made it difficult for him to live a carefree life. It hasn’t been easy for him to socialize with his friends because he is unable to participate in many activities. He finds comfort in watching Nascar and playing video games. He does have a love for camping as well. His wish was to go camping at Watkins Glen International Raceway. Children’s Wish Foundation was able to make this happen through donations from Myers RV and Wegman’s grocery store.

Jimmy* had the time of his life meeting the Nascar drivers and watching the races. Although he was not feeling well most of his trip, he was still able to enjoy the aspect of camping and being at his most desired place. Going camping and watching the races meant the world to him and we are so grateful that we were able to get help fulfilling his wish!
