We are the Wishmakers! For
nearly 10 years we have trained, fundraised and paddled our hearts out for the
Children's Wish Foundation and our team's special Wish child. We give
hundreds of hours to grant a Wish. We've been minions, snowmen, pirates -
all for a special child and their family whose Wish we help come true. We
couldn't it without the people who support us though - people like you!
year we are paddling for Braeden. Braeden (Mr. B), was not supposed to survive
is birth let alone his first 219 days in Alberta Children's hospital. Mr. B has
survived more challenges and has had to undergo more procedures in his first 5
years of life than most people have to endure in a lifetime.
Braeden is the embodiment of positivity and
light, he is simply joy personified. B touches all who he meets and can still
give love even in the most trying of circumstances. Braeden continues to spend much of his time
at ACH due to admissions and needing 22 clinics (specialists), but he also
continues to teach medical staff that complex children have no boundaries and
are the true heroes among us.
Braeden loves the ocean and he is the most
peaceful on a beach (he's been to the west coast of BC twice), so we are
thrilled to be looking at some time to dip our toes in the waters of Hawaii.
We're raising money for a great
cause. Please sponsor any of our team members and help grant the heartfelt wish
of a child like Braeden. For a family whose child is fighting a
life-threatening illness, sometimes the power, hope and courage that a wish bring
can make all the difference in the world. Together, with your support, we can
reach our fundraising goal. Wishes work wonders, and every gift matters!
