This year, our chapter is celebrating 35 years of granting life-changing wishes to local children with critical illnesses.
Founded in 1983 with the vision of granting the wish of every eligible child, we have taken great strides towards reaching that goal. In the 35 years since Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic’s first wish, over 9,800 wishes have been granted for local kids, but there is still work left to do. Over 840 children are expected to be diagnosed with a critical illness in the Mid-Atlantic region each year, and more than 600 local children are currently waiting to receive their one true wish.
With a gift of $35 or more you can help our chapter receive a $100,000 match grant to ensure wish kids and families receive life-changing wishes in the years to come.
