Blake is no stranger to hardship. He’s faced bullying at school, yet strives to be kind and do the right thing. One day at school, Blake discovered that a student brought a loaded gun in his backpack and was showing it off to his classmates. Blake immediately reported the student to the School Resource Officer on campus despite being threatened. Blake showed tremendous bravery in the face of a life-threatening situation and spoke up despite his fear.
We’re honored to recognize Blake Johnson as a Hero of the Month. Kids Wish Network also invited him and his family to its headquarters for a celebratory party complete with balloons, cookies and gifts. He received a generous Walmart gift card, and a backpack filled with goodies. He was also excited to receive a VIRO Rides Vega 2-in-1 Transforming Electric Scooter donated by Adventure Publishing. Blake said, “I’ve been wanting this and was going to buy it with my own money!”
“This is amazing, something we never could have dreamt,” said his mom Laynie.
Congratulations Blake, your bravery in protecting others is an inspiration.
