La Crosse-area boy representing Wisconsin as CMN Champion

Posted:

LA CROSSE (WKOW)-- A four-year-old La Crosse-area boy who's fighting through a devastating disease will represent Wisconsin as this year's Children's Miracle Network Champion. 

Wyatt Peterson has spina bifida.  The bones in his spinal cord didn't fully form and he doesn't have feeling in his legs.

However, Peterson is always on the move; from wrestling, to swimming and riding his hand tike.

Its a special bike his family bought with the help of the Children's Miracle Network, which provides financial support to hundreds of kids and their families across the state each year. 

A representative from each state will fly to Disney world, then to Washington, DC where they will meet the President.
