INDIANAPOLIS — Friday’s Indy Fuel game was extra special for one visitor.
Friday night’s game was themed after the superhero “Batman,” so naturally they invited “Make a Wish” kid Jakarr to come.
Little did Jakarr know he would soon get his wish of meeting Batman in person.
Jakarr has a rare heart syndrome that affects his blood flow. For Jakarr, the meet and greet was a chance to escape from his difficult medical routines.
“Just the fact that they’re giving him the opportunity to do something different and he’s not used to hockey so this is a pretty good experience for him,” Jakarr’s mother, Latasha Ashley said.
Jakarr and batman got to chat, hang out, and even play on the ice.
