PARKER, Colo. — High schools across Colorado are holding Wish Weeks to benefit Make-A-Wish Colorado, which grants wishes to children suffering from a serious disease or critical illness.

Last week, Ponderosa High School in Parker granted a sports-themed wish for 9-year-old Leo Raszka.

Leo has a congenital heart disease. He loves hockey and visiting Florida, so he has become a huge Tampa Bay Lightning fan.

Ponderosa HS planned a day of roller hockey games and dodgeball for Leo and his family. The students wore Bolts t-shirts and gifted Leo a customized Bolts jersey.

The students presented the Raszka family with a trip to Tampa to see the Lightning play and a meet-and-greet with Leo's favorite player, Steve Stamkos.

That is what Denver7 Good Sports is all about!
