Dream Story



Kara is a brave 14-year-old who lives with Cystic Fybrosis. Kara’s dream was to meet her hockey hero, Sidney Crosby. We were able to send Kara and her family to Pittsburgh where they had the experience of a lifetime. Not only did Kara get to meet her hero, her family also got a tour of the locker room and they were able to watch the Pittsburgh Penguins practice. Kara spent some time chatting with Sidney and said he was very nice and took the time to sign many autographs and take lots of pictures with her. Thanks for giving us the privilege of making your once-in-a-lifetime dream come true Kara!
