Hundreds of People Help Fulfill Four-Year-Old's Bucket List


Hundreds of friends, family and strangers jumped back into their childhood Wednesday night helping a four-year-old boy cross off his list.

Colton's Bucket List is a distraction from the cancer filling Colton Steinhorst's body.

In Tuesday night's Target 2 on Assignment, we told you about the experimental stem-cell transplant Colton and his mom underwent as a last resort.

Now doctors say he'll be lucky to make it through Christmas.

The family learned two weeks ago Colton's cancer is growing and spreading fast.

As news spreads, strangers across the country started sharing the online post.

They've created a movement helping cure a little boy's soul.

"So anyways, thank you for help us get this whole entire thing set up and fulfilling everything on his bucket list," Colton's mom Tara said with tears in her eyes.

Here are the items on Colton's list:
-To go to Disney again just looking for flights and lodging
-To meet Batman since we didn't met him in Disney last year
-Go To Bay Beach
-A hot Air Balloon ride
-Jump in a pool full of JELLO
-Drive In Movie
-Swim with Dolphins
-Meet Shamu the whale
-To go the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago
-To go to the Museum of science in Chicago
-To go to some water parks in the area to have fun in the water 
-To fly in a glider plane
-To go zip lining
-To go on a helicopter ride
-To have a huge birthday party this year
-To go to a carnival with cotton candy and games
-Have a huge water balloon fight
-Give someone flowers
-Ride horses with my brother

The list is quickly being crossed off.

Like at Pioneer Park in Ashwaubenon Wednesday night.

Hundreds of people, with thousand of balloons, showed up to help fulfill Colton's wish of a massive water balloon fight.

"To be totally honest, it's through a friend-of-a-friend that we're actually here today," Krista Belling said from Greenville. "We brought out or girls and we made 100 balloons ourselves."

Gratitude is showing from stranger to close friends.

"It's overwhelming honestly," Heather Herbst said, a family friend. "It's so awesome for so many people to come together that don't even know this family."

For the time left, Colton's friends, family and strangers will try spreading smiles.

Yet they're always mindful of the fact a bucket list should never be made by a four-year-old.

"We've have the conversation before many a times," Tara said. "When he was at that door before, and he knows the angels in heaven would take care of him and God is up there and lots of family. And we'll be with him again, so we just try to make it as easy as possible right now for him to understand."
