 ABOUT MAKE-A-WISH

Make-A-Wish® Wisconsin grants wishes to children 2.5-18 years old, who are living with critical illnesses. Since their founding in 1984, more than 7,000 children and their families throughout the state have experienced the life-changing power of a wish. This year, Make-A-Wish Wisconsin granted more wishes than ever before - 402 wishes. But there is still more work to be done. More than 500 Wisconsin children will be diagnosed this year alone with a medical condition, qualifying them for a wish.

These are unprecedented times for us all. The health and safety of all Make-A-Wish constituents, including wish families and partners, is the priority. At this time, due to current medical and public concerns, Make-A-Wish America postponed all wish travel, as well as wish kid participation in all activities and events related to Make-A-Wish that involve large gatherings (e.g. large scale wish granting events, theme parks, etc.) until further notice.

In Wisconsin, more than 150 wishes have been delayed and are being rescheduled. There are currently more than 430 children whose wishes are pending. They are hard at work, granting the wishes that can be fulfilled at this time and preparing for the many wishes that will need to be granted once we are through this season.

A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their critical illnesses. For many, the wish marks a turning point in the fight against their illnesses. Doctors, nurses and other health professionals say, the wish experience works in concert with medicine to make their patients feel better emotionally and even physically. You can help change a child's life by participating in Yacht Blast For Kids.
