“Make-A-Wish® grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories, on average, every 38 minutes. We believe that a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides us. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve.”

“We wanted to express our deepest thanks to all of you for your unbelievable job raising money for the children of our chapter at Timberman.  We also want to congratulate you all on an awesome race.  We loved cheering for you and supporting you on the course.  As of now, your current fundraising tally is approximately $75,000 with some employer matches still outstanding and online donations still trickling in.  With this tally, we will be able to grant at least seven wishes and change the course of at least seven children’s lives.  There is nothing short of magic in what you’ve done. ”
