Syracuse, N.Y. – Five-year-old Wish Kid Jude, of Baldwinsville, gathered with his family at Caps & Campers RVs in Cicero on June 30th to receive his wish - a new camper.
Jude has a rare neurologic disorder. The camper will allow him and his family to engage in one of their favorite activities - camping and sharing time with extended family.
