I have been known to sign-up for things without really thinking it through, especially if there is a charitable component to it. So here I am, fundraising for the 2019 Wish Jump! As Jackie Robinson said, "A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives." On Saturday, July 20th, I will skydive with a group that has committed to raising funds and awareness for Make-A-Wish Northeast New York!
The Tri-City ValleyCats are a proud partner of Make-A-Wish Northeast New York; a partnership that has led me to become personally involved with the local chapter. I've had the opportunity to meet numerous Wish Families and see the postitive impact that a wish can have.
Wish kids are some of the bravest and sweetest kids you'll ever know. They wish to work in a pickle factory, become a superhero, go snorkeling, give their baseball team new uniforms, and push all of the buttons in a tall building's elevator. Their innocence and unexpected wisdom stays with you.
A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their critical illnesses. For many, the wish marks a turning point in the fight against their illnesses. Doctors, nurses and other health professionals say, the wish experience works in concert with medicine to make their patients feel better emotionally and even physically.
More kids are waiting for their wishes. Please help by donating today.
Thank you for your support!
