Harpreet is 12 years old and living with a severe nervous system disorder. His diagnosis comes with many challenges, which he faces daily. These challenges don’t stop him from loving nature and learning new things about different parts of the world.  

He wished to go on the Rocky Mountaineer – a train ride experience through the beautiful Rocky Mountains. This trip would be perfect as it would allow him to see the stunning scenery of Banff, Lake Louise, and the mountain glaciers of Alberta.  

Harpreet, his mom, dad and brother Parampal, all departed on their wish trip out West. The train ride experience was exactly what Harpreet was anticipating. He loved the views of the majestic mountains through the oversized windows and glass-domed coaches! His family loved the wonderful meals, the exceptional service and stories about the scenery as it passed by. He also loved the special gift that the Rocky Moutaineer staff gave to him and will cherish it for years to come. Not only did Harpreet love the experience, but he was so happy to be surrounded by his family. 

His mom, Parminder, told us how amazing their trip was, “This wish coming true meant the world to my whole family. My children have not stopped talking about the fun that they had.” She continued, “Harpreet was interested in exploring the Rocky Mountains for a very long time, so when his wish came true, he was so happy!” 

Harpreet will forever cherish the amazing memories he made with his family by his side.
