Our company became a Platinum National sponsor with Make-A-Wish in 2012. In the past six years, we have helped raise $556,000.00 in support. It takes approximately $10,000.00 to grant a wish, so that's a lot of wishes!
Two years ago, I overcame my fear of heights, and through the generous support of family and friends, I was able to raise over $10,000.00 by doing the Rope for Hope. The note at the top of the page is from my "wish kid" Braden. (And the photo is me and Braden, just after my rappel.) Braden has Duchenne's Muscular Dystrophy, and his wish was to swim with the dolphins. Through generous support, Braden got his wish, and I was grateful to have the opportunity to meet him and his family, as they told me about his special trip.
In 2017, Cailey Buxton represented our company (fearlessly) for Rope for Hope, and for 2018, Cailey and I are back to do it again. For this year, we have added two more people – Rebecca Lafond and Kate Suggitt, and our goal is to raise enough money to grant at least one special wish.
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.
You can help make a difference too! Your support of our team 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.
