Kearney Powersports Hosts 13th Annual Make-A-Wish Roll-N-Ride

Posted: Updated:
The success of a local fundraiser helps ensure sick children get the kind of therapy they deserve with a chance to make their wishes come true. 

"Duck Dynasty is my favorite show and stuff, I keep telling my mom I want to meet them someday and I finally got to!"

Aniah Preston from Broken Bow was granted his wish in May to meet the cast members of Duck Dynasty. 

Saturday, about 400 bikers took to the highway to raise over $11,000 for the Make-A-Wish foundation.

Everyone involved says the impact from the event goes beyond just fundraising.

"It gives the kids hope, it gives them something to think about other than being sick and their illness, it gives them energy," said Aniah's mom Amy Kulhanek. "I know it gave Aniah energy and he's a strong little guy and he was just very excited."

"Aniah's mother says it just changed their lives forever, that Make–A–Wish trip," said Make-A-Wish Vice President Hannah Stone. "And Aniah is still going through quite the battle and will continue doing so, but he has a scrapbook of memories and now we're going to add the Roll–n–Ride to those memories as well for him."

The Make –A–Wish Roll-n-Ride has raised over $88,000 since it started 13 years ago.

All funds raised go toward helping local children make their wishes come true.
