Danny Lockhart Continues To Make Wishes Come True

Posted: Updated:

WMDT 47 NEWS - Danny Lockhart is your every-day teenager, facing a not so every-day condition. He suffers from a very severe from of scoliosis. Between frequent visits to Shriners hospital and checking in with his doctors, life has been anything but easy. For Danny, things looked up last summer when he got the trip of a lifetime. His wish was fulfilled by spending a week in Ocean City with his role model, JJ Roth from "93.5 The Beach".

That wish didn't end when his vacation did.

"Well now I just consider him and his family pretty much my family," Roth tells us.

This fall, Danny attended the Ravens vs. Redskins game, and even got to hang out with his role model JJ once again at an Island Bay Days Show. Now Danny wants to make sure other kids can have the same opportunity.

For a second year he's organized the "Walk for Wishes," with all the proceeds going towards The Make A Wish Foundation. Last year he raised $1,700, and this year, with the help of JJ and local organizations, Danny hopes to raise even more.

"It's for the kids it's for the people who really need it and there are people way worse off than me that really want something amazing to happen," Danny tells us.

"It's not just for terminally ill children it's also for kids that have been dealt a rough hand," JJ says.

The walk is tentatively planned for Saturday March 16th at the North Caroline High School. Friday, Danny and his family will meet with the principal of the school to work out final details.
