Video: Wisconsin players help to make a kid's dream come true

Gary Andersen and a few of his Wisconsin players were able to make a huge impact in the life of a 14 year old boy named Darien, who is living with a rare disease called Histiocytosis X.

Because of the debilitating disease, Darien spends most of his time in his room, so as part of the Make A Wish program, Darien got his room made over by a handful of the Badger players and also got to take a player led tour of the football facilities where he also got a personal visit with coach Andersen.

While Darien and his family were taking the facility tour, players were wrapping up their construction on his room for the big reveal, and this video shows it all.

This one will definitely give you chills at points throughout the video. You can tell the players enjoyed being able to pitch in and make a difference, and it's an experience that Darien will remember the rest of his life.
