AJ's Wish

AJ, 14, diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, loves football and bodybuilding! He doesn’t let his medical condition stand in his way when it comes to playing sports; he is a member of a football team and knows many football stats.

The Edmonton Eskimos invited him to be a football player for a day.

AJ attended a practice where he received a personalized jersey and football and joined the team’s practice! He also experienced his first media scrum as Edmonton reporters swarmed him asking about his wish. 

Thank you to everyone for making AJ's wish come true!
