In 1994, I became a Make-A-Wish® Wish Granter for the first time. The eleven years that followed I was able to bring joy to many children who faced life-threatening medical conditions.
Now as a grandfather, or as I am more commonly known in Ventura County, the Manny, the mission of Make-A-Wish® is still important to me.
Today, I am raising funds and awareness for Make-A-Wish® Tri-Counties on August 4 & 5, 2017
, to go Over The Edge
- literally! Over The Edge challenges you to face your fears, catch your breath, step up to the edge and rappel down the side of the National University building in Oxnard. The first 95 fundraisers to raise a minimum of $1,000 will earn a spot to go Over The Edge.
More than 120 children in the tri-counties are diagnosed each year with a life-threatening medical condition. Last year, Make-A-Wish® Tri-Counties granted over 90 wishes for local children. You can help Make-A-Wish® reach more of these children and create hope, strength and joy in their lives. Money raised by rappellers goes towards granting these wishes.
I hope you can help me reach my goal and help make a difference in the lives of children who need it most!
