MEQUON - A student at Homestead High School got the chance to go to Super Bowl XLV, courtesy of the National Football League. 

Zachary Strazewski, 19, has cerebral palsy and he spends most of his time in a wheelchair.  He's also a die-hard Packers fan. 

His family created a Facebook page called "Send Zack to the Super Bowl."

They also used Twitter and ended up with quite the following from people around the world. 

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell got wind of Zack's story and decided to send him and his family on an all expenses paid trip to Dallas. 

Zack's aunt Judy told Newsradio 620 WTMJ's Bill Michaels that Zack "has had the time of his life."

Judy says Zack's Facebook page has generated support from Wisconsin and from around the world.  She says even Bears fans have sent him words of encouragement.

The NFL. took care of all the details of the trip and they even made sure Zack and his family could attend pre-game parties. 

"For him to experience that from his chair and to know that everything is possible...it was a huge miracle," says Judy.
