Community Gathers to Support Dre Winkelmann Ahead of Life Changing Surgery

Posted: Updated:

A Northern Michigan community gathered tonight at a benefit event, to help support a boy who is in need of life changing surgery.

Dre Winkelmann is 14 years old, and has cerebral palsy.

Next Wednesday, he'll undergo surgery that will help his legs.

9 and 10's Vanessa Fayz and photojournalist Jared Barraco talked with Dre's family, and they tell us his story.
