Make A Wish Celebrates World Wish Day Today At Cold Stone Creamery
In 1980, 7-year-old Chris Greicius of Arizona had only one wish; to be a police officer. Learning of Chris and his ongoing battle with leukemia, a group of police officers and various law enforcement agencies made it their responsibility to ensure Chris’ wish became a reality. Unbeknownst to Chris, his family or the Arizona community that granted his wish, this was the beginning of the Make-A-Wish Foundation® as we know it today. Be a part of celebrating the anniversary of Chris’ wish and the over 300,000 wishes that have since been granted worldwide on April 29, 2015 for World Wish Day®.
Make-A-Wish® Wyoming is partnering with police departments across the state in remembrance of Chris and the nearly 500 wishes that have since been granted to Wyoming children battling life-threatening medical conditions. The Casper Police Department will be displaying “Make-A-Wish Supporter” decals on all active duty police cars on April 29, 2015 in support of the day. Join Make-A-Wish Wyoming and the Casper Police Department in honoring World Wish Day by sharing Chris’ story and encouraging those in your community to become involved with Make-A-Wish Wyoming.
We invite Casper supporters to celebrate with us at our World Wish Day Ice Cream Social, April 29, 2015 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Cold Stone Creamery. During this time, 20 percent of all sales will go toward granting the wishes of Wyoming children.
