Huntar's wish

The Details


One year after 11-year-old Huntar Sammons was left with the prospect of never walking again, the Make a Wish Foundation and RDL Group joined forces to give the determined Upper Hutt boy a day to remember.

Huntar made a wish with the foundation to operate a digger and move earth around, and RDL jumped at the chance to help make this dream come true.

With support from his parents, Huntar donned a hard hat and personalized vest and tried his hand operating an excavator.

After mastering the art of earthworks, Huntar got the opportunity to take a spin in one of RDL Group T950 Kenworth trucks and demonstrated to locals how to use the horn.

Huntar’s mother Michelle Hailwood says “my son’s face was priceless as he dug and emptied his heart out.

“He had the biggest smile on his face, after a turbulent year and it was an honour to go to a local company to complete his wish”.

RDL wishes Huntar all the best on his triumphant road to recovery!
