Make-A-Wish Michigan, Dream Team 

Since 1984, Make-A-Wish Michigan has been creating life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Last year, Make-A-Wish Michigan granted 403 wishes to children in our communities.

By joining the Dream Team, YOU can help us grant the wish of every eligible child.

A recent impact study shows:

  • 9 out of 10 wish parents said the wish experience helped relieve their family from traumatic stress.
  • 8 out of 10 wish parents saw that their child’s wish gave them a stronger sense of empowerment.
  • 8 out of 10 wish parents say a child’s wish experience serves as a coping mechanism during treatment.
  • 9 out of 10 wish parents saw their child’s well-being improve with a wish.

A single wish costs approximately $10,000.  If every athlete were to fundraise/donate $7 we would be able to grant a wish for a local kiddo and help make their dreams come true!

Benefits of joining the Dream Team:

Once you raise a minimum of $500, you will be an official Dream Team member!

This includes:

  • Race Registration Fee Reimbursement
  • Dream Team Singlet
  • Assigned Wish Hero (You’ll be connected to a local wish kiddo to help inspire your training and    fundraising)
  • VIP packet pick up
  • VIP tent access on race weekend which includes private gear check, port-a-potties, food/beverage and a place to reunite with your family while you sit and kick your feet up after crossing the finish line!
  • Opportunity to earn some sweet Dream Team swag through your fundraising efforts
  • Dream Team group meet up’s (optional) and a fundraising coach from Make-A-Wish Michigan
