ST. LOUIS (KTVI) - It was a night of wishes, thanks to donors and the St. Louis Rams. Steven Loszewski is from Grain Valley Missouri, but his father help instill the love for Michigan football in his son’s life at a very early age. Since Steven can remember, it was always his dream to play for the University of Michigan, but he was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 13. Now at the age of 18, Steven got his wish, and was recruited by the University Of Michigan. Jake Long Michigan alum, traveled to the small Missouri town to tell Steven the news. ESPN’s "My Wish Series" was there to capture it all. A national audience was able to watch the events unfold and see Steven’s dream come true.
James Laurinaitis was the host of the event tonight and has been heavily involved with make-a-wish. He used to grant wishes when he played for Ohio State. Since being here in St. Louis, he has helped almost double their profit every year at this event. They used to raise 100-thousand dollars but last year they were able to raise 350-thousand dollars and it's because he recruits many of his teammates to be a part of tonight's event.
To put that in perspective, the extra money goes to help fund 6 wishes and as you just saw, they go all out.
