A group of children from San Diego and Los Angeles, including 50 from the Ronald McDonald House Charities, got to experience a fun day at Legoland Water Park Tuesday, playing in the water and soaking up the sun.
Legoland invited the children and their families as part of their kick-off event to start the summer.
Of the kids having fun was 2-year-old Jackson Verner.
His mother said it was great to see him playing in the water. The toddler recently had surgery for a rare heart condition.
"It’s so nice for them to do something like this for us. We really appreciate it," said Destiny Torres.
Torres, 18, was invited with her siblings by the Ronald McDonald Charity after losing her 12-year-old brother to cancer last November.
"It's so nice to see my family smile," she added.
The theme park also donated $80,000 to Ronald McDonald House Charities.
