Panhandle community hopes to make 5-year-old girl's wish possible

Posted: Updated:

April is National Limb Loss Awareness Month and people in one panhandle community have come together in hopes of making a little girl's wish come true.

5-year-old Macee Garcia was born without a right hand but she doesn't let that affect her.

Macee loves playing sports especially wrestling, soccer and karate.

After hearing about a sports camp in Illinois for kids with limb-differences, Macee set her mind to raise $1,000 to attend the three-day camp, NubAbility Athletics.

This past weekend, family and friends came out in support.

Macee held a zumba dance event along with face-painting.

Her parents are thanking the community for its support.

"The community's support is so great," says Mike Garcia, Macee's father. "Everybody comes out and everybody supports and it doesn't really matter the cause. Everybody jumps in and really helps take care of all the kids in this community."

Macee has raised about $600 so far.

Anyone interested in donating money may contact the Consumer Coop Credit Union in Alliance at (308) 762-1871 or visit 217 Toluca Ave.

The camp starts on July 18th.
