Make-a-Wish North Dakota Grants 700th Wish

Posted: Updated:

A local teen's dream of fishing in the Bahamas is coming true, thanks to the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

In 2012, Jade McGough of Glyndon, Minnesota, was diagnosed with arteriovenous malformation of the brain, a degenerative condition. Jade is an avid fisherman and today, friends and family joined him for a scavenger hunt at Scheels All Sports in Fargo. The hunt ended in the fishing department, where Make-a-Wish representatives surprised him with a trip to the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas. There, Jade will be able to catch exotic fish you just can't find here in the valley.

"It was a secret. I definitely didn't know about it," says Jade. "I just thought we were going to Scheels to get summer fishing stuff."

Today was a milestone for Make-a-Wish North Dakota. The organization has now made the wishes of 700 kids come true!
