Ethan's wish to go to Atlantis

“ Ethan loved every second of the trip! ”

  • Ethan , 11

    • Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma
    • I wish to go to Atlantis Resort

Ethan was surprised to hear he would be having his send-off party at Werner Park.  When he arrived at the ballpark he was taken to the locker room where more than 10 Blue Bunny employees were there to greet him, along with mascots and staff from the Storm Chasers.  Ethan was then given a gift bag full of Blue Bunny items that would help him have fun in the sun, including a Frisbee, beach towels, water bottles and a beach bag.  To top it off, he then got to enjoy his favorite treat - Blue Bunny ice cream!

Ethan had a wonderful time on his relaxing trip to Atlantis.  Both Ethan and his sister Emma's favorite part of the trip was the sea lion excursion.  Ethan couldn’t stop talking about how they'd swim and sit up right next to him just like another person.  They even gave him some extra kisses on the cheek!  Ethan and his family also took part in the dolphin excursion which seemed to be another highlight.

Like any other 11-year-old boy, Ethan thought the water slides at Atlantis were AWESOME!  He and his sister tried out all 11 slides, and one of them went straight down—sounding pretty scary to his wish granters!  With all the swimming and water activities Ethan found his appetite trying all sorts of foods at the great buffets.

Overall, Ethan had the trip of a lifetime and was happy to have a week free of worries with the help of Blue Bunny.
