EAU CLAIRE, WI (WTAQ) - Remember Teagan Marti? She’s the girl who’s finally walking again, after she fell 100 feet from a ride at Extreme World at Wisconsin Dells three years ago.

Teagan is now 15 -- and she’s getting help from Charlie Sheen, of all people. The actor donated $10,000 Thursday for a therapy dog to help Teagan with her rehab.

Lucia Wilgus of Eau Claire got the wheels rolling on this one. She became friends with the Marti family after Teagan’s mishap – and she’s been raising funds for a therapy dog.

This week, Wilgus contacted a family friend – who happens to be Sheen’s godfather – and he made a pitch to the actor. He asked for $6,000, but Sheen decided to give $10,000 for extra costs.

The dog is being trained in Fond du Lac to be Teagan’s constant companion and do tasks for her. Sheen said he likes to “pay it forward.” He doesn’t always like to talk about his charitable activities, but he spoke up about this one to encourage more people to donate.

Teagan’s mother couldn’t believe Sheen’s gift. The girl will get the dog on her next birthday in September. She has not decided on a name yet, but Sheen would like it to be called “Charlie.”
