Chris lives in Sanger and is a senior finishing his last semester at Fresno State this fall. He is currently obtaining a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Business Management while also working at H&M. Christopher is close with his family and enjoys spending time with them. He especially loves to help his sisters; one is diagnosed with Down Syndrome and the other lives in Utah.
During his free time he likes to keep himself active by going to the gym, engaging in Spartan Races, and spending time outdoors. He also likes to snowboard and play recreation football and basketball.
Chris once volunteered with Make-A-Wish and made a special connection with the people involved. He was inspired by some of the stories associated with the Make-A-Wish foundation and wanted to help make a difference by becoming a Shoe Guy. He is now an intern at Make-A-Wish and is enjoying it very much.

This one belief guides us in everything we do. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve. The Central California chapter was founded in 1986, Make-A-Wish Central California chapter has granted over 2,000 wishes and serves eight counties: Fresno, Madera, Merced, Mariposa, Kern, Kings, Tulare and Inyo. We grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
