This year I am gathering my courage and participating in Make-A-Wish® Rope for Hope, rappelling down from great heights, to help grant the wishes of children living with life-threatening medical conditions. A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their life-threatening medical condition. For many of them, it marks a turning point in their fight against their illnesses.
So WHY am I doing this (beyond being a great cause)?
Every child deserves to be "WOWED", surprised, amazed with life, recognized, loved and to feel ALIVE!
To reconnect with my own 'inner child'!
Mid-life crisis - repelling off a building greater than 20 stories - SERIOUSLY!
I'm willing to take a 'leap' for every person who might NOT want to do crazy things - someone has to do it!
To support my girlfriend Caroline who is deathly afraid of heights and organized our team!
I always wanted to be Spider Man's girlfriend!
Because I have two incredible parents who provided me with an amazing childhood and I was blessed to be healthy to enjoy every minute of it!
You can help make a difference too! Your support will allow the Foundation to continue to create powerful wish experiences, improving a child’s state of mind, replacing fear with happiness and helping them to feel like a normal kid again.
