Why Run for Team Make-A-Wish?
Wishes are more than just a nice thing or a single place in time. Wishes are the turning point for a child and the entire family. We come in at a critical time to allow our wish kids to imagine life beyond their illness. Whether it’s to MEET their favorite star, GO on an incredible adventure, HAVE something they’ve always wanted or BE anyone they can image – from a runway model to a Navy Seal. This magical journey gives them the power to be in control and helps their entire family heal and feel “normal” again. Join Team Make-A-Wish to change the life of a child in Los Angeles.
