BOONVILLE- Boonville Bowl was busy on Sunday for a benefit to help raise money to buy a special wheelchair for a high school senior.

Ryan Berwick was born three months early and has cerebral palsy. His mom, Sheri told NEWSChannel 2 they're trying to save up for a special wheelchair that reclines, and allows Ryan to stand at head height.

Berwick said a chair costs about $60,000, and they want it by graduation this year.

"We're really hoping to have that chair by graduation so he can stand and go across the stage and receive his diploma," said Ryan's mom, Sheri. "It would just be so great," she added.

Ryan's birthday is a week before graduation and Sheri said she hopes to get the chair by then.
