BROOKINGS – It’s been 2 1/2 years since Natalie Kuehl, now 8, was granted her wish to visit Walt Disney World. Now her parents, Shane and Sara Kuehl, have many warm memories of that special time for their family and they’ve committed to helping other Brookings area kids get their wishes granted, too.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation of South Dakota grants wishes to children between the ages of 2 1/2 and 18 who have life-threatening medical conditions, to “enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.”
