La Vista, NE - Cabela's in Sarpy County gave a 10-year-old boy a $500 shopping spree.
Michael Jarecki has a rare form of lung disease which makes it difficult for his lungs to supply enough oxygen to his body. His favorite activity is fishing. So he's planning a fish-a-thon to raise money for the "chILD Foundation" which helps kids with lung disease.
Cabela's found out about the fundraiser and donated the gift to make sure Michael has all the gear he needs before he hits the water.
His mom says they were shocked by the outpouring of support.
Mindy Jarecki said, "We couldn't believe it--so taken aback by their generosity. It's nice to see a company take an interest in something like this, especially a local company. It meant a lot to us."
Michael will try to catch as many fish as possible August 16th through the 18th. You can learn more about Michael and his fundraiser by heading to their Facebook page.
