KANSAS CITY, Kan. (June 2019): Wyatt Damm loves Monster Trucks, and wanted to see Monster Jam to experience all the high octane excitement of his favorite drivers and trucks competing for victory. Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses, crushed it, giving him a Monster Jam experience beyond his biggest dreams. Wyatt struggles with intractable multifocal epilepsy, causing daily seizures.
Monster Jam, Feld Entertainment and Arrowhead Events made his wish extra special with a spectacular VIP experience. Wyatt spent hours with Monster Truck Grave Digger driver Adam Anderson, and Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman. Wyatt was thrilled receiving extraordinary gifts…Hardman presented him with a signed Chiefs jersey personalized with his name, and Monster Jam generously gifted him a Power Wheels replica of Grave Digger. He also felt like a Monster Truck superstar getting to ride it on the dirt track. To complete Wyatt’s jam-packed dream come true, he’ll also be attending this weekend’s Monster Jam in Kansas City, including pit passes for the ultimate Monster Jam experience.
During Wyatt’s wish, his family enjoyed LEGOLAND Discovery Center Kansas City, beautiful accommodations at Sheraton Overland Park Hotel, and memorable dinners at Overland Park Grill by J. Alexander’s, and RA Sushi Bar Restaurant.
“We’re so grateful to Monster Jam, Feld Entertainment, and Arrowhead Events for going above and beyond, and a special thanks to Adam Anderson and Mecole Hardman for taking time out of their day for Wyatt’s fabulous wish,” said Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai.
