  • John Cena Sets a World Record For Kindness

    John Cena has set a world record! According to Guinness World Records, he holds the record for most wishes granted through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The WWE legend has granted the wishes of 650 kids.

    The Make-A-Wish organization gives children ages 2-18, who have been diagnosed with critical illnesses, the opportunity to have a special request fulfilled. Cena first worked with Make-A-Wish in 2002, and back in 2012, was the foundation’s 1,000th wish.

    According to Make-A-Wish, he is also the most requested celebrity for wishes. In the history of the foundation, no one celebrity has granted more than 200 wishes. But John Cena has now granted 650 wishes. Now that’s what I call a champion!

  • Patriots Super Fan Gets a Big Surprise

    Matthew Judon surprises Patriots fan with new wheelchair after being rescued from train tracks

    CBS Boston FOXBORO - It was a day of surprises and gratitude at Gillette Stadium Friday for a Holbrook man thanks to the Patriots organization. WBZ first caught up with Jamarc Tidwell earlier this week in Holbrook after good Samaritans Megan and Matt Pohl rescued him when his old wheelchair got stuck on the tracks of an oncoming train.

    Jamarc Tidwell is from Holbrook and all he wanted one day was a cup of coffee before the Patriots game. He ended up getting stuck in his old wheelchair on the tracks of an oncoming train. With the help of good Samaritans Megan and Matt Pohl, he was rescued from what could have been an unbelievable tragedy.

    The Patriots got word of the story and surprised both families with a tour of Gillette, game tickets, a new wheelchair for Jamarc, and the chance to meet his favorite player, Matt Judon.
