About Make-A-Wish® Colorado

Make-A-Wish Colorado creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Since 1983, Make-A-Wish Colorado has granted wishes to more than 5,000 eligible children throughout the state. According to a 2011 U.S. study of wish impact, most health professionals surveyed believe a wish-come-true can influence the health of children. Kids say wishes give them renewed strength to fight their illnesses, and their parents say these experiences help strengthen the entire family.
