Hundreds of Westporters of all ages headed to the Westport Weston Family YMCA this afternoon.
Wearing masks, holding cards and signs, they made a very ill 6-year-old boy’s wish come true.
He had asked the Make-a-Wish Foundation if he could swim with his family, have a pizza party, and pet a bearded dragon.
The Y went one step further. They encouraged a crowd to come cheer the youngster on.
It quickly became a community event. Retirees, families with their own little kids, the Fire and Police Departments — all welcomed him with applause.
And showered him with love.
