Richland Teen Goes to the Super Bowl

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.-- A Richland teen is having his wish come true all thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Elijah Brown's friends and family had a going away party for him on Wednesday at Applebees in Richland.

His ultimate wish is to go to the Super Bowl and is all coming to life. He is one of 12 other lucky kids who are completing their dream. Elijah says, he already has a favorite team.

"I'm rooting for the patriots, because my dad is a big Giants fan and I like going against my dad's team," he said.

Elijah was diagnosed with a life threatening brain tumor. He'll be heading down to Glendale, Arizona with his family on Thursday for the big game on Sunday.
