2021 Make-A-Wish® Colorado Statewide Virtual Wish Week

April 12 - 17, 2021

Join Make-A-Wish® Colorado supporters in our community and raise money to grant wishes for children with critical illnesses. These life-changing wishes are only possible because of supporters like you. All participants are encouraged to raise money to help grant wishes of kids in our community.  Due to COVID-19, we have more wish kids waiting for their life-changing wish than ever before... almost 450 kids across the state.

Your support today will ensure that we are able to grant all local wishes as we receive them, as well as help us prepare for the day we can safely grant the wishes that have been postponed because of COVID-19. We are dedicated to making every eligible child's wish come true — register to participate and fundraise today, and you can be a big part of making that happen.

Check out the variety of different family-friendly activities and opportunities to get involved and support our efforts.
