Inspired by Make-A-Wish®’s mission, Hanshi John Therien of the the World Kobudo Federation, is taking the lead for all of us in the martial arts to, together, raise $10,000 to help grant the wish of a critically ill child.
About Make-A-Wish®: Make-A-Wish® creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. We are on a quest to bring every eligible child's wish to life, because a wish is an integral part of a child's treatment journey. Research shows children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness. Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario has granted close to 750 wishes across our territory since 1999 ; and currently have over 115 children in our community waiting for their wish. We also receive an average of 75-100 new referrals annually. For more information about Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario, visit makeawisheo.ca.
