When he first learned he had terminal pancreatic cancer, Ray sat down and drafted a real-life bucket list. His wish list was simple: walk his daughter down the aisle at her wedding, hold his first grandson, and see his youngest child graduate from college. All of those dreams came true for him in recent months, leaving one big “ask” undone. The lifelong Cincinnati Bengals fan dreamed of watching his favorite team play in the Super Bowl!
In 2022, the Bengals earned their spot at Super Bowl LV1, so traveling philanthropist Charlie Rocket decided to make Ray’s wish come true. He teamed up with corporate sponsor ClickUp to purchase tickets for Ray to attend the big game in Los Angeles, California. The whole Dream Machine crew met up with Ray and his wife over video chat to share the good news, and his reaction is incredibly moving!
Watch Ray hear the wonderful Super Bowl news in the video below, and don’t forget to share this story.
