“Steelers make a wish come true”

Young Kendrek not only got to meet #43 at Steelers practice, but a lot of his teammates too, including #7!


From Teresa Varley, Steelers.com:

2013_maw_0920_0005_newsKendrek Tarver couldn’t stand still, so excited to be watching the Steelers practice on Friday afternoon and see his favorite player Troy Polamalu in person.

Tarver, who is from Baltimore, Maryland, attended practice and will be at Sunday night’s game against the Bears as a part of the Steelers commitment to Make-A-Wish. Tarver has Muscular Dystrophy, something he was born with but showed up when he was around five years old.

“This is good to make him happy, let him meet people he plays on Madden and watches on television,” said his mother Michelle Tarver. “It’s just exciting. It fills my heart that he is happy and got to do something he wanted to do.”
