The Make-A-Wish Foundation is important to me and my family because my cousin Grace was granted a wish through the charity a couple of years ago. Grace is one of the strongest 7 year olds I know. Even though she is in and out of the hospital because of her epilepsy, she is one of the happiest, funniest, and most optimistic kids I have ever known. However, everytime she goes into the hospital it is incredibly challenging for her, and the rest of her family. Make-A-Wish granting them a wish gave them a chance to have an amazing experience, and just feel normal. As someone who can not physically be with Grace and the rest of her family because of where i live, anyway I can help them, or families like them, I am extremely grateful for.
Throughout this upcoming summer I not only hope to become a better player and not get too sunburned, but also to help grant multiple wishes, and that is something I couldn't do with any other summer lacrosse team. Our team goal for Lacrosse For Wishes Southern Ohio 2021 is to raise $10,000 to be able to grant the wish of a local child from Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. In order to help reach this goal I would like to raise $500, and even more if possible!
Lacrosse for Wishes is a summer lacrosse program where for kids to participate on a team, they need to raise money for Make-A-Wish®Ohio Kentucky and Indiana. We are fielding four teams in Southern Ohio for the 2018 summer season, a 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023/2024 girls teams. Our focus is to teach our kids not only to be better players on the field, but better people off the field by teaching the importance of philanthropy and giving back to your community. Our Team LFWSO 2021 goal is to raise $10,000 to be able to grant the wish of a local child from Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.
