A teenager with special needs in Boca Raton got his wish granted this weekend thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation chapter in South Florida.
Ari Manevitch suffers from cerebral palsy and epilepsy. The 17-year-old's wish was for a street-legal golf cart customized with lights and a sound system his family can use when camping and spending time together.
Sunday, the teen got the golf cart during an event at his home.
"This is a really awesome gift for him. It gives us a chance to do more stuff with him and include him in some family fun. You know, we like to go camping a lot and this is something we can take with us and not just sit around the campground and tear it up," Ari's father Kevin told NBC affiliate WPTV-TV.
Ari's mother, Stephanie, said he is looking forward to having friends on board and going to get ice cream nearby with his grandmother.
