Phi Zeta of Chi Omega presents the Making Strides for Make A Wish 5K & 1K!

          The Phi Zeta Chapter of Chi Omega continues to support her national philanthropy, the Make-A-Wish Foundation®, whose mission is to grant the wishes of children with life threatening illnesses to enrich the human experience with strength, hope, and joy. Last year alone, The Phi Zeta Chapter of Chi Omega at McNeese State University raised over $12,000. This donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation® granted the wish of a local child named Chance. We hope that you will consider making a contribution to our first annual Making Strides for Make-A-Wish to help make more wishes, like Chance’s, come true.

            The contributions of caring individuals, like you, will provide our Texas Gulf Coast & Louisiana chapter of Make-A-Wish® with the resources to grant wishes to more than 400 kids in our community this year. Your contribution is more than just a gift. For these special kids, it’s a chance to forget about being sick, to remember that anything is possible, and to keep making plans for the future. It is the gift of hope, and, for our wish kids, hope is the most powerful gift in the world. When you help grant wishes, you may find your own life as greatly enriched as the families whose lives are changed forever with precious memories that last a lifetime. Thank you for helping us share the power of a wish®.

             On behalf of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Texas Gulf Coast and Louisiana and the Phi Zeta Chapter of Chi Omega, thank you for registering and supporting our race.
