This past Saturday, March 12, 2016, Chapel of the Flowers was excited to participate in Walk for Wishes, Southern Nevada. The one mile walk and 5K run is organized by Make-A-Wish®, Southern Nevada and Caesar’s Foundation to celebrate those who have received a wish and raise money for further wishes to be granted. It was a beautiful day to do both for Make-A-Wish® Foundation.
Every 37 minutes a wish is granted by Make-A-Wish® to a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. Since 1977, Make-A-Wish® has seen that these wishes granted are a game-changer for a child during a difficult time. It is with the help of tens of thousands of volunteers, donors and supporters that Make-A-Wish® is able to impact a child’s life through the granting of a wish. Make-A-Wish® goes above and beyond to create an experience that exceeds every child’s expectations.
“The impact varies. For wish kids, just the act of making their wish come true can give them the courage to comply with their medical treatments. Parents might finally feel like they can be optimistic. And still others might realize all they have to offer the world through volunteer work or philanthropy.”
“Making dreams happen” is a passion for all of us at Chapel of the Flowers. It is a privilege to come together with the people of Las Vegas and Southern Nevada to “make dreams happen” in our community.
