BENEFITING: Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana
ORGANIZER: Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana
The Make-A-Wish Foundation is special to me because my cousin was granted a wish through the charity. My cousin is one of the strongest 6 year olds I know. She is constantly in and out of the hospital because of her epilepsy and even throughout it all she is one of the most happy kids I have ever been around. 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, or the rest of the family, 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 each player who participates on a team, needs to raise money for the Make A Wish Foundation.
Make-A-Wish grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. We would love your support in helping grant these wishes for our local wish children. The impact of a wish is powerful and lasting, making a difference to not only the wish child, but families and communities as well.
I would really appreciate it if you donated to the cause, as I truly believe in this charity. Everything helps, no matter the amount, truly anything would mean a lot to me. Thank you for your support in our fundraiser!
