Our team is hosting a fundraiser that we’ve dubbed the CBRE Ride for a Wish in order to raise money for the Make A Wish Foundation! We thought this could be a great way to get together for an amazing cause, get the heart rate up and then replenish lost electrolytes with some well deserved beverages just in time for the holiday season!
For those of you who don’t know, Make A Wish Foundation is an organization that grants life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. It is near and dear to my heart as I was a recipient of a wish when I was younger. I was diagnosed with Leukemia when I was 3.5 yrs old and battled with the disease until I was 8. I was sent with my family to Disney World, all expenses paid, and it was an experience I will never forget and am incredibly grateful for. Although these wishes don’t cure the disease, they do give a child and their families an opportunity to exist outside of their current realities and provide lasting memories that are untainted by their circumstances.
One wish costs $10,000 and my goal is for us to grant a wish! I know it’s a long shot, but I think we have the people who can do it.
