A 10-year-old boy from Winnipeg has had his dream come true, thanks to the Dream Factory. Shea Sparling, who has a life-threatening condition called polyarteritis nodosa, has always wanted to visit Nintendo of America headquarters and meet Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime. Thankfully he had his wish granted and spent the day at Nintendo of America’s HQ at Seattle, Washington. He even got to play a game against Reggie at Mario Kart 8 along with his older brother Declan. Here’s what they all had to say about Shea’s dream.
“When we met with Shea about his dream, it was so wonderful and adorable because he was so specific about what he would like to do for his dream,” said Grace Thomson, executive director of the Dream Factory.
“We had so much fun,” said Shea’s mother, Carole Dufault, “They had signs welcoming us and we went on a tour of the building. We met with Reggie and the kids even played a game of Mario Kart with him.
“He was so gracious and relaxed and spent time chatting with Shea, answering his questions.”
