BENEFITING: Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana
ORGANIZER: Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana
Hi, my name is Paige Zimmerman and I am really excited to be a part of the Make-A-Wish girls lacrosse team. Make-A-Wish is extremely important to me because one of my best friends, Jess, was recently diagnosed with Leukemia. This was devastating news to her and her family as well as all of us that are close to her. Jess will be granted a wish from this amazing organization and I am glad to help to raise money for such a great cause. Jess has been through hours and hours of chemotherapy, surgery, and hospital stays. The disease has been an incredible struggle for Jess and her family but she is very optimistic and refuses to let anything get her down. The opportunity that Make-A-Wish will give Jess and her family will allow them to have some well needed relaxation and time that they don't have to focus on hospitals and treatments.
Over the next year, I am looking forward to making some new friends on the team and becoming a better lacrosse player. I am also looking forward to helping to raise money for Make-A-Wish to help people like Jess.
Our team goal for Lacrosse for Wishes 2022/2023 is to raise $10,000 to be able to grant the wish of a local child from Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. To help the team meet (and hopefully exceed) this goal, I am trying to raise $500 or more.
Lacrosse for Wishes is a summer lacrosse program where for kids to participate on a team, they need to raise money for Make-A-Wish® Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.
Our focus is to teach our kids not only to be better players on the field, but better people off the field by teaching the importance of philanthropy and giving back to your community.
Make-A-Wish grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. We would love your support in helping grant these wishes for our local wish children. The impact of a wish is powerful and lasting, making a difference to not only the wish child, but families and communities as well.
Make-A-Wish, my team, and I would really appreciate any donations that you make no matter how great or how small - every little bit helps. Thank you for your support!
