Brandon swims with stingrays

Brandon lives with a cardiac condition that has impacted his health since birth. Brandon is adventurous and curious about the world around him and he especially loves the water and marine animals. When he found out that he could receive a wish, he knew exactly what he wanted: to swim with the stingrays at Ripley’s Aquarium!

On his wish day, Brandon arrived at the aquarium, was suited up, and went into the water with his mom and an instructor. He loved having the unique experience of being so close to the stingrays and petting their backs. He was also able to tour around the aquarium and observe more sea life throughout the day. 

In addition to his swim with the stingrays, Brandon enjoyed staying at the Pantages Hotel, and visiting the CN Tower and the Royal Ontario Museum. Brandon’s visit to the big city gave him memories that will certainly last a lifetime.

“Thank you for helping to make my wish come true, it was the highlight of my summer!” - Brandon

Thank you to the team at Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada for creating a wonderful wish experience for Brandon.
