Blast Zone is honored to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Illinois. The Make-A-Wish vision is to grant the wish of every child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. We partnered with Make-A-Wish Illinois to aid in granting a wish for a 4-year-old boy from Sycamore, IL. He wished for a backyard makeover and we were able to help make that wish a reality with the contribution of a Pirate’s Bay Play Park.
In the United States and its territories, on average, a wish is granted every 37 minutes. At Make-A-Wish® they believe a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides them and inspires them to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids they serve.
Since 1985, Make-A-Wish Illinois has granted more than 13,000 wishes to children across the state with the support of volunteers, donors, and other supporters.
Every year, nearly 1,200 children in Illinois are newly diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. Make-A-Wish® believes that wishes are an important part of the overall care and treatment of these children. Each wish offers the opportunity for a joyous, life-changing experience.
