News: Dakota’s Big Day with Make-A-Wish!
Yesterday was a special day for a young baseball fan in the Sacramento area. Eleven year old Dakota was picked up from school in a limousine and shuttled off along with friends and family to his home where he was surprised to see his very own batting cage installed! That’s not all though, in June he will go to the Sacramento Rivercats baseball game where he will meet the team, get a special VIP tour of the stadium, and even thrrow out the first pitch! We are so happy to sponsor Dakota and to partner with the Make-A-Wish foundation to bring some joy and hope to a boy in need.
Tens of thousands of volunteers, donors and supporters advance the Make-A-Wish vision to grant the wish of every child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. In the United States and its territories, on average, a wish is granted every 37 minutes. Make-A-Wish believes a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides and inspires them to grant wishes that change the lives of children. Wishes are more than just a nice thing. And they are far more than gifts, or singular events in time. Wishes impact everyone involved – wish kids, volunteers, donors, sponsors, medical professionals and communities. The impact varies. For wish kids, just the act of making their wish come true can give them the courage to comply with their medical treatments. Parents might finally feel like they can be optimistic. And still others might realize all they have to offer the world through volunteer work or philanthropy.
