(REXBURG, ID) – The Make-A-Wish Foundation reached out to the Madison High School track team this week. Team member Rhett Jensen, who is recovering from bone cancer, asked the organization to help the school procure some new equipment. On Wednesday, Make-A-Wish presented the school with ten new track hurdles and another $18,000 in equipment. Jensen says he’d never have been able to make it through his own hurdles with chemotherapy without the help of his teammates, friends, and family.

    It was actually 80 hurdles and 10 starting blocks. And no idea whose hurdles are in that photo, but they’re not AAE’s. The photo below shows Rhett’s hurdles packed for shipping.
