AUSTIN (KXAN) — An Austin business known for indoor skydiving helped make a young boy’s wish come true.

Tuesday morning, iFLY presented a check to the Austin-area Make-a-Wish. The business raised $7,500 to grant a wish for Luke, a boy facing medical problems. The money helped build a clubhouse for Luke.

“It was really amazing to see that little boy’s face light up when he saw his clubhouse that he had wished for,” said Sarah Marshall, the iFly spokesperson.

iFLY donated a portion of the proceeds from skydiving flights people purchased to make Luke’s wish come true.
