HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Some young athletes in Hartford are hoping for a little help making their dreams come true.

This past weekend, the Hartford Wildcats Youth Football team won the New England Regional Championship, qualifying for nationals.

Now the team needs help raising money to pay for their trip to Florida.

“These kids are very excited to go to Florida. As you can see its 30 degrees outside and they are outside playing. We really want parents and the community to come out strong and donate money for the kids,” said parent Luis Garcia.

The team has raised $2,000 of the $35,000 needed.
