Year four for me and I have come to realize it will always be a little heart stopping standing on the edge of a building but with that comes incredible support and positive team energy! This is such an uplifting and amazing fundraiser by 'Make a Wish Foundation' which brings such joy and happiness to children who are battling a life threatening health condition. A child's wish is granted, and in so doing, it gives them and their family a much needed timeout from their difficult situation so they can all experience elation, joy and magic!
In the 1980's when Make a Wish was more in its infancy, my first son, Christos was a recipient of 'Make a Wish'. Christos was battling with cystic fibrosis and during his hospital stay at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, an incredible and caring nurse put his name forward to the "Make a Wish' Foundation. We were able to travel to Greece for his wish before his passing a few weeks later. So this rappel is not only a grateful thank you to ' Make a Wish' but also a 'Pay it Forward ' and a powerful enabler for children and their family and friends to find some happiness and joy amidst their personal struggles and life threatening medical ordeals.
Lisa, my sister-in-law extraordinaire, will be joining me for her third year. From the very first rappel, Lisa was enthusiastic, brave and fun! It will be a real treat sharing this experience with her again! Our team name is the "Raving Ravens'.
Thank you one and all for your kind and generous donations, for caring and for truly making a difference.
