TEHACHAPI, Calif. (KGET) — Dreams come true in the mountains. The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central California granted the wishes of 1,000 boys in Tehachapi.
It was a day full of adventure with the Tehachapi community coming together to make a dream come true. That desire for a boy who dreams of becoming a superhero.
Thor, Batman and Captain America. They are heroes, iconic symbols of justice.
Logan LoCascio’s dream was to become a superhero like them. At the Tehachapi Apple Festival on Saturday, he got his chance, becoming Super Logan.
“He has a condition called Prader-Willi syndrome that affects his muscles and he wanted to be really strong for a day and be super fast,” said Ashley Sodergren, regional director for the Make-A-Wish Foundation in South Valley California.
This 1,000th wish from the Make-A-Wish Foundation made Logan’s dream come true. Maddie Janssen of 17 posted a call for Super Logan.
A supervillain known as the Bitter Apple has attacked the festival. Logan got dressed and rushed over to help. Super Logan donned his new cape and armor, broke through walls, saved the mayor from being crushed by a rock, and saved a dozen veterans from the poisonous fumes of the evil Bitter Apple.
Logan’s father Chris LoCascio joined him as his sidekick, Wonder Dad, as they battled the Bitter Apple.
“That’s wonderful,” said Chris. “Everything about this is community. Everyone was with Super Logan when he was saving everyone and cheering him on.”
“I actually feel happy,” Logan said. “I didn’t know my wish would come true today.”
Logan showed off his new super human strength by lifting a 500 pound barbell. At the end, everyone cheered and thanked Super Logan for saving the day.

“I’m very proud of Super Logan,” said Chris. “He brings happiness wherever he goes, and now he can bring strength, speed and courage. I couldn’t ask for more in a super hero.”
“Stay strong. Stay powerful,” Logan said.
Super Logan ended his day meeting fans and signing autographs, leaving an unforgettable mark on Tehachapi.
