Boys Wrestling Dreams Come True

Posted: Updated:

It was a very special day for one Minot boy.

Levi Beckler, 10, was born with progressive muscular dystrophy and neuromuscular disease. He was told by doctors he would never walk again. But, by the age of four, he proved them wrong.

Levi says he gets most of his inspiration by watching wrestling because it teaches him to keep working and never to give up. His one wish is to go to WrestleMania 2014.

And, thanks to Make-A-Wish, Levi's wish is coming true.

Early Thursday morning, Levi and his family left Minot International Airport and headed south to New Orleans. He will have a private autograph signing with WWE superstars and have a front row seat at this year's WrestleMania.

For Levi and his family, it's a once in a lifetime opportunity they will never forget.

"Having a special needs child is trying and hard. For this program to give us a little happiness, and let us kind of be normal and to have something to look forward to is very rewarding. We are very thankful for this program," says April Beckler, Levi's Mom.

About every 38 minutes, Make-A-Wish grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories.
