About Our Organization
For more than 35 years, Make-A-Wish has been granting life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. The inspiration came from a little boy who dreamt of being a police officer. The Arizona Department of Public Safety granted his wish with a custom-made uniform, helmet and badge, and even a helicopter ride. Since 1985, the Central New York Chapter - which serves 15 counties - has granted more than 1,800 wishes.
