Tristan: I wish to have a shopping spree


“ A whole community rallied to give Tristan an unforgettable day ”

Six-year-old Tristan has always been a fighter, overcoming the odds and became the happy and healthy child he is today. He was born with a congenital cardiac condition, but continues to enjoy playing games on his Wii, shopping, playing with his puppy, and anything relating to SpongeBob. It didn’t take long for Tristan to decide that he wanted to go on a shopping spree in Wal-Mart, but what he didn't know was how extravagant his shopping spree would be.

On the day of his wish, a police-escorted limo came and picked Tristan, his mother, father, brother, and sister up to bring them to their local Wal-Mart. Tristan and his siblings were thrilled about the limo! When they arrived, they walked down the red carpet while a marching band, cheerleaders, firetrucks and tons of supporters cheered, waved banners. People in the crowd even wanted Tristan’s autograph! 

Once inside the store, Tristan got to go on his ultimate shopping spree complete with a SpongeBob themed piñata, cake, shopping cart, and a scavenger hunt that led him throughout the store to find more exciting prizes. After his long day of intense shopping, he and his family were able to relax and enjoy a nice dinner at Applebee’s to conclude the day.
