Reaching for a Dream: Keagan’s special Halo birthday wish comes true

Written by: / / No Comments

Keagan Gillespie recently turned ten years old and is a massive fan of the Halo series, even without ever having played Halo before. For his tenth birthday, he wanted nothing more than a Halo themed party with his friends and family there to celebrate his special day.

Keagan also suffers from Stage 2 of Spinal Muscular Atrophy, a progressive disease that severely impairs movement and drastically inhibits the development of the body’s muscles.

When the South African Reach for a Dream Foundation heard about Keagan’s wish for a Halo party, the team partnered with Xbox 360 South Africa and made his dream come true.
