Since November 1st my dad has flown to Atlanta to host Warriors at the Falcons game. He then bussed to Charlotte to host Warriors at the Panthers game. After the game he bussed back to Atlanta to Fly to Chicago & spent one day back home with the family before jumping on a bus to Cincinnati to host a gold star family at the bengals game, then took another bus to buffalo to make warrior wishes come true at the Bills game. From there he bussed over to Philly to host 2 warriors at the Flyers game and eventually found himself in Boston to make warrior wishes come true at tonight’s Boston Bruins game!
