Why: To raise awareness and funds for Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic’s efforts to serve local children. It is estimated that 840 children in DC, Maryland and northern Virginia will be diagnosed with a critical illness each year. For each wish granted, at least one more local child is waiting for their wish. Make-A-Wish relies on community support to grant wishes, and help close the gap between children who are eligible for a wish and those who receive one.
