The Today Show has just shared an incredibly heartwarming video featuring none other than The Rock himself, Dwayne Johnson, making dreams come true for 21 Make-A-Wish kids at Universal Studios Hollywood.
The video captures the magical moment when Johnson, with his trademark charisma, surprises the children during a backlot tour, taking on the role of their tour guide for the day. What’s even more remarkable is that he was initially slated to spend just an hour with them but ended up extending his time, staying with the kids and their families for an astounding five hours.
In the video, The Rock opened up about his personal connection to Make-A-Wish, revealing that it has held a special place in his heart ever since his father granted a wish back in 1983. He recounted the touching story of a young boy named Bobby, whose last wish was to meet his dad, and how that experience profoundly impacted him. The Rock’s words remind us all of the incredible strength and resilience displayed by these children, who are facing life’s challenges with unwavering courage.
Since its inception in 1980, Make-A-Wish has granted over 900,000 wishes to children battling critical illnesses worldwide, making dreams a reality and spreading hope. The video captures Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s extraordinary and heartwarming surprises at Universal Studios.
