From trips to Disney World to the opportunity to meet their favorite celebrity, The Make-A-Wish Foundation makes the dreams of thousands of terminally ill children come true every year. This past weekend in Kansas City, they made a very different kind of wish come true for young girl and one fraternity played a big part.

8-year-old Amelia Meyer is battling brain cancer and has a pretty unique hobby: during walks with her grandmother after her treatments, she likes picking up trash in the park. So Amelia wished to “take care of the world.” And the folks at Make-A-Wish decided to mobilize Missouri residents to take part in that hobby and clean their local parks.

People across the state came out on Saturday to help fulfill Amelia’s wish. According to KFVS, “Hundreds of people across the state cleaned up parks in their own communities, all wanting to help Amelia’s dream come true.” And part of that effort were over two-dozen brothers of Sig Ep at Southeast Missouri State.

Chapter president Aaron Clite told KFVS that it was an easy decision to participate. “It’s something that we really wanted to rally behind,” Clite said. “It was a no-brainer for us to be out here, making someone else day better, but also trying to help out the community.”

Good job, guys.
