Picture this:

  • You are living in Lacombe, Alberta.
  • You are playing volleyball.
  • All of a sudden Ronald McDonald is in your face with a camera crew and everyone starts cheering.
Are you dreaming? Is this a nightmare? Nope. But it is exactly what happened to 12-year-old Ty Wagar last night.
He was lucky enough to be chosen to one of the eleven kids chosen from across Canada to attend the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games as part of the McDonald’s Champion Kids program.
Ty will have the chance to meet athletes, visit cultural sites and interact with more than 50 other kids from around the world!
And the whole surprise went off without a hitch on Tuesday night. Ty was surrounded by Ronald McDonald, his teammates, family and friends and was presented with a special Olympic send-off package to the Games and message from Olympian Cassie Campbell.
I’m also assuming he will get now a lifetime supply of Big Macs. Or at least he should!
Now that is something to be to jealous about!
Congrats Ty! Do Alberta Proud!!
