The boys' basketball programs at Lakewood Middle and Prairie Star Middle are working cooperatively to make a difference in the life of a child in the community. The students dedicated their seasons to supporting the Kids for Wish Kids Program through Make-A-Wish. Kid's For Wish Kids is a program designed for schools and youth organizations that gives students the opportunity to support wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions. The students are supporting Dylan, a second grader at Indian Valley Elementary, and his wish to visit Florida.
