Ashton - 10 years old
Ashton's one true wish was for an action-packed trip to Auckland to "create memories and be remembered" and he certainly did that! Ashton travelled from his home town of Kawerau to Auckland for his wish and even though he has a heart condition he didn't let that stop him from swimming with sharks at Kelly Tarlton's Sea Life Aquarium! He also helped spray an eye-catching graffiti mural in Ponsonby with his own face and name as the feature, and was body-painted as a scary Minotaur by make-up artists at the BodyFX studio.
Ashton also got to name a Tuatara after himself at the Auckland Zoo, which is a pretty unique experience!
Ashton's beautiful wish would not have been possible without the support of SkyWalk, Body FX, Jonny 4Higher, Kelly Tarlton's SEA LIFE Aquarium, CityLife Auckland, Auckland Zoo, Auckland Sports Photography, Butterfly Creek and Make-A-Wish volunteers Ann and Tony.
