Winners will enjoy their prizes even more knowing that they have helped grant wishes for children, ages 3 through 17 with life-threatening illnesses. Make-A-Wish Canada is celebrating 25 years of creating magical wish experiences and bringing smiles to the faces of children, who, due to their illness, may be missing out on some of the joys of childhood that other kids take for granted.
Make-A-Wish Canada exists because some wishes can’t wait for someday. Through its eight regional chapters, Make-A-Wish Canada, grants wishes to create hope and happiness for children with life-threatening illnesses. Founded after a group of individuals helped a young boy fulfill his dream of being a police officer, Make-A-Wish International is now the largest wish-granting organization in the world, making dreams and wishes come true for more than 200,000 children.
