Wellington’s Walking Club walks for Make-A-Wish

14 years ago

Students from Wellington School in Monticello showed their support to fellow student Leif Dahlk, one of this year’s recipients to receive a wish from the Maine Make-A-Wish Foundation. Dahlk, diagnosed with a form of cancer, has received treatments and a bone marrow transplant.
He is completing first grade at the local elementary school and has been having a great year physically.
In June he will receive his wish of a tree house built in his backyard. The tree house is manufactured by a Maine based company, “Kids Crooked Houses.”
Marilyn Carey, of New Limerick, a local wish grantor for the Maine chapter, was also on hand for the walk.
The students donated $212 through contributions and pledges to the foundation for future wishes for Maine children.
It takes $6,000 to fund a wish. There have been five other wishes granted in the Southern Aroostook area in the last two years.
