Did you know that, on average, a child with a critical illness will be granted a wish somehwere in the country every 34 minutes? These children are our classmates, neighbors, teammates and friends. With your support, we can help them.
I am organizing student athletes from the St. Xavier Track Team to join together this spring to raise funds for Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana to help create life-changing wishes for these sick children. In order to do this, our track team plans to collect donations from friends, family and the community, while we pledge to run 910 miles this season - the distance between the St. X track and Disney World in Orlando. The significance of this is that a family trip to Disney is the most popular wish that Make-A-Wish grants.
To fund our journey, we are collecting donations either in person or online using this fundraising page. The impact of a wish is huge! Make-A-Wish has the unique ability to transform a child and a family's life during some of their most difficult trials. With your support, we can make wishes come true for a child in our own area. Every donation makes a difference and we are grateful for your support!
Please follow along with our journey and help track our miles as we "run" to Disney World.
Thank you and best wishes,
St. Xavier Track Team student athlete
