Make-A-Wish began in 1980, when a seven-year-old boy in Phoenix, Arizona with leukemia expressed his wish to be a police officer. A group of officers from the Arizona Department of Public Safety granted his wish by giving him a custom-made uniform, helmet, badge and even a helicopter ride! The young boy’s delight in having his wish granted inspired the group to form an organization which would grant the special wishes of other children.

Any child between 2 1/2 and 18 years of age who has been determined by their physician to have a life-threatening medical condition is eligible for a wish. Make-A-Wish grants wishes to eligible children regardless of race, religion or socioeconomic status.

The average cost a wish is more than $10,000. Money for these wishes is raised by fund-raising events such as the All-Star Hockey Classic and through the generosity of corporations and people in our communities.

Make-A-Wish® New Hampshire celebrates over 30 years of granting wishes to children battling life-threatening medical conditions. The chapter has granted over 1,600 wishes to date. Alex’s wish for a synthetic ice hockey rink in his backyard makes this continued partnership all the more exciting, as we continue to strive to grant the wish of every eligible child in New Hampshire.

Make-A-Wish® Vermont, established in 1989, grants wishes to Vermont children facing life-threatening medical conditions.  The Vermont chapter’s first wish was a trip for Bonnie, an 11-year-old girl, to meet her favorite television characters: Larry, Darryl, and Darryl of the Bob Newhart Show.  Since that time, the Vermont chapter has granted the wish of every medically-eligible child referred to us, over 830 wishes to date.  For more information on the Vermont chapter, please visit www.vermont.wish.org, like us on Facebook.com/makeawishvt, follow us on Twitter.com/MakeAWishVT, or call us at (802) 864-9393.
