Aidan is an inspiration and a bright light in the lives of many. Despite his metabolic disorder, Aidan loves life and takes advantage of everything it has to offer. This incredible teenager is a people-person who loves making others laugh and enjoys spending time with his family! Living life wheelchair-bound can create so many unforeseen obstacles – traveling being one of them. Aidan’s one true wish was to travel to the beach to breathe in the crisp, salty ocean air and watch the deep blue waves roll onto the coast.
A family road trip to Clearwater, Florida was sure to be memorable and Aidan couldn’t wait! In hopes of making the minivan a festive method of transportation, the family painted fun palm trees, a sun and the ocean with fish on the back window. Once Aidan and his family reached Clearwater, the real wish excitement began! Other adventures included dining at the Hard Rock Café, spotting dolphins and other sea creatures at the Aquarium and on a Dolphin Exploration Boat Tour, and the relaxing beach days in between. Make-A-Wish® Colorado provided Aidan and his family with four full days of relaxation and beach-bumming, along with a special road trip that was unforgettable!
