On June 27th I'll be participating in the Make-A-Wish Rope for Hope, a once-in-a-lifetime experience to rappel 36 storeys down the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Vancouver to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
I'm doing this for two reasons. First, the Make-A-Wish Foundation does wonderful work granting the wishes of children living with critical illnesses. Second, hanging off the edge of a high-rise is (strangely) one of my bucket list items! I've always said I was going to get a job as a high-rise window washer when I retired. Maybe this will tick that item off my list and then I can just retire into my RV like a normal person. In any case, on June 27th I will hurl myself off the edge of a building in the name of charity.
I have pledged to raise $2,000. Please help me reach this goal and together we can help make dreams and wishes come true! A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, and more willing and able to battle their critical illness. For many of them, it marks a turning point in their fight against their illnesses.
Your support will allow the Make-A-Wish 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. Your commitment will help move Make-A-Wish closer to their vision of granting the wish of every eligible child in communities across Canada.
