Make-A-Wish: Owen Peters goes to Disney World

A student at Glen Taylor Elementary School, Owen is the life of the party and will "talk your ear off," his Mom says. Born with a heart condition, only one kidney and an unconnected esophagus and GI system, Owen has not had it easy. Upon birth, he received a tracheotomy and colostomy bag, and he has undergone three open heart surgeries.

Today, Owen continues to defy the odds. His one true wish? To go to Disney World to meet Mickey Mouse and Pluto. Owen spends his free time volunteering at The Wishing Place, and even has his very own walk team this year at Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada's Walk For Wishes Presented by Allegiant! Join "Team Owen" at and walk with him on March 10th at Town Square Las Vegas from 8-10:30 AM.
