Connor's Wish to go to Monster Jam

Connor with Iron Outlaw

“ ...We had an awesome time as a family. We really need this time to enjoy together. We were all made to feel "special" ”


- Kim, Connor's mother

Connor may be just a six-year-old boy but he has overcome some large obstacles in his short life, such as battling with toxic megacolon, an intestinal condition.

However, large obstacles are something that are actually quite entertaining to Conner—especially when a big Monster Truck is driving over them! Some of Connor’s favorite things to do are watch Monster Truck shows on TV and play with toy Monster Trucks with his younger brother, Caden. Connor quickly knew what to tell his Make-A-Wish® volunteers as his wish: to go to Monster Jam!

Connor and his family flew all they way to Syracuse, NY to see Monster Jam at the Carrier Dome. Connor had the time of his life! He met all of his favorite drivers, including Tom Meents, the driver of Maxium Desctruction. Sitting inside Max D (Maxium Destruction) and meeting Tom Meents was one of Connor’s favorite parts of his wish. He was also thrilled to walk on the monster truck dirt track. And like any little boy his age, he loved seeing all of the wrecks!

Conner and Caden with Maximum Destruction Connor’s mother Kim said, “We had an awesome time as a family. We really need this time to enjoy together…We were all made to feel “special”. We will treasure our precious memories that were made possible by Make-A-Wish.”
