Anytime Fitness is funding a wish made through Wish Upon A Hero for a swing set. The wish will be granted at the center in Marietta on Saturday.

Lauren Guzzardi, a 28-year-old single Mom from Lithonia, posted a wish on social helping network Wish Upon a Hero, asking for a swing set for her autistic daughter Samantha. On Saturday, her wish will be granted at Anytime Fitness in Marietta.
