BENEFITING: Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana
ORGANIZER: Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana
My name is Julia LaSala, and I am an 8th grader at Mason Middle School. I played on the Lacrosse for Wishes team last year, and it was such a fun and amazing experience, with the great coaching and the friends I got to meet and the ability to raise money for such a worth-while cause. This coming season will be my 3rd season in this sport, and I am so looking forward to playing again for this organization.
I connect with the Make A Wish foundation because I have a friend named Gracie Bagadiong, who is also an 8th grader that goes to my school and lives really close to me. She is in a wheel chair, needs a machine to breath, and has trouble seeing far away, and hearing. She is still such an awesome, friendly, amazing person that loves to hang out with friends and loves to draw and paint and do artwork. She got a wish to go on a Disney vacation through the Make A Wish foundation, and to me she is so inspiring because with so many obstacles in her life, she continues to make the most out of every situation and is just so positive and friendly, and an amazing friend.
I think Lacrosse for Wishes is a great organization because it allows me to play a sport I love, but at the same time, the organizations is so much bigger than just lacrosse. Playing for this foundation reminds me how lucky I am to be able to have the skill and abilities to play this sport, and it gives me the opportunity to raise money for a foundation that helps sick or disabled kids to get to do something exceptional.
I can't wait for this season and I would appreciate any donations to this fundraiser!
