In this week’s “Season of Hope,” WCCO takes a trip back to Westbrook. In October, WCCO’s John Lauritsen went to a fund-raiser for Kate Jorgenson, an 11-year-old girl who lost her left arm in a farming accident last summer. On one of the snowiest nights of the year, WCCO’s John Lauritsen returned to deliver a big surprise to Kate and her family.
On Monday nights throughout December, WCCO is going back to visit people whose stories touched us this past year. With generous support from our friends at Slumberland and Pandora Jewelry, it’s our hope to make Christmas unforgettable for these families. In this week’s “Season of Hope,” we go back to Litchfield High School. In April, we introduced you to two girls who invited boys from their special education program to senior prom.
Two-year-old Lila has cerebral palsy and finds working with horses helps improve her mobility. Allie is a teenager who heard Lila’s story, and raised close to $3,000 to help pay for her horse therapy session. With Allie’s help, WCCO’s Aristea Brady was able to surprise Lila and her mom with the Christmas of their dreams. Watch the video above to see this heartwarming story of hope.
Eight-year-old Lexi Dietz stole our hearts when we told her story a couple months ago.
About a year ago, a pair of brothers in Haiti told a St. Paul couple that gave them an opportunity for adoption that they wanted their younger sibling to have a home first.
WCCO first met the Coon Rapids Gospel Choir back in October. They were rehearsing for an appearance that never happened.
Cheer up my deal finding friends! The snow is here, but we’re ignoring it and hoping some of these hot deals will melt it away before you can ask, “Is it spring in Minnesota?”
