03/15/14 117 W, 4 I - + 6 - 1 Raleigh Fire Department Makes Wish Happen For Young Cancer Survivor

A two-year-old cancer survivor spent the day today with the Raleigh Fire Department, his wish made reality with the help of firefighters and Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina. Connor Dunn received a helmet and his own gear, and rode in the front seat of Engine 13 in the St. Patrick's Day parade. He and his family were also given a tour of Station 1, and returned after the parade for a barbecue lunch. Here's a WNCN story about the event. And here a couple pictures from myself. More to be posted later, along with parade photos which included Fire Chief John McGrath as Grand Marshal. Click to enlarge:
