Make-A-Wish Southern Florida granted Wellington resident Marianna Mohar’s wish for a customized golf cart on Saturday, Sept. 12.
The 12-year-old Wellington resident has been battling for more than five years against an autoimmune disease that causes, among other problems, inflammation of her heart. She has been hospitalized numerous times and the conditions result in significant pain in her back, shoulders and chest.
Marianna wished for a customized golf cart that will enable her to connect with friends and participate in activities in her neighborhood.
Make-A-Wish surprised the young girl at her home in Wellington with an elaborate reveal of the cart that has been customized to her specifications. It’s black with a red “M” on the front and features red rims, seats and stripes, LED lights, a lift kit, Bluetooth & USB connectivity and more. Marianna’s new ride was decorated with balloons and banners for its debut.
Make-A-Wish Southern Florida has granted more than 12,000 life-changing wishes since 1983 for children who have critical illnesses.
The nonprofit aims to grant a wish for every medically eligible child in its territory and understands wishes aren’t just nice, they’re necessary for kids and families at some of the most difficult times in their lives. Learn more at www.sfla.wish.org.
