Most 9-year-olds go to the pool and play with friends during summer break. But Maddox Murakami has other plans this summer. He is the operator of Maddox Sno-Cones.

He’s not saving up for a new football or other personal endeavors. He is taking his own time this summer to do something for people in need. He is a partner of Make-A-Wish Colorado and is donating to the foundation.

Maddox says he cares about helping other kids through Make-A-Wish.

"It’s just a non-profit place that helps, a non-profit that helps children, and I just want to help other children, too," he said.
