Make-A-Wish Missouri and Helzberg Diamonds teamed up for a trash cleanup project Saturday, Feb. 27, 2016, in Swope Park. The event was organized to fulfill a wish for Amelia Meyer, an 8-year-old Kansas City girl who is battling brain cancer. Amelia's Wish was to "take care of the world," so volunteers gathered in four parks, including Swope Park, to pick up trash and honor Amelia. Tammy Ljungblad tljungblad@kcstar.com
