Over 20 students from the University of Connecticut will be taking on the challenge of a lifetime: trekking to the ruins of Machu Picchu and raising thousands of dollars for Make a Wish Connecticut. The team has already raised over $13,500 in only three months since signing up!
Grant Wishes for Local Kids
Make-A-Wish Connecticut grants wishes to 240 children each year. They are your neighbors, friends and relatives. Let's grant more wishes, together. Wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that can give children with critical illnesses a higher chance of survival. And wishes not only help these children they also have far-reaching, positive impacts on their families and communities. To read more about the Make a Wish CT, please click here!
