The Saskatchewan Children’s Wish Foundation's “Wish-Mobile” is travelling across the province through its "Wishes & Dreams" tour, and it will be stopping in Estevan on Wednesday, September 11.
The goal is to share the stories of children who have benefitted from the foundation. Gay Oldhaver, the chapter director of the Children’s Wish Foundation, will be traveling throughout Saskatchewan to meet with local media outlets and the families of children who have benefitted or who could benefit from the Wish Foundation.
She will share the stories of Wish Children and their families in the various regions and communities of the province.
The Children’s Wish Foundation is dedicated to fulfilling a favourite wish for children facing a life-threatening illness in Saskatchewan. More than 800 wishes have been granted in the province.
The Children's Wish Foundation strives to see that no family will be turned down.
“'Wishes & Dreams' is such an important opportunity for people to learn about the children receiving these wishes – to see that these are our precious kids facing life-threatening illness,” said Oldhaver. “They’re our kids, right here in our own communities.”
Estevan is one of 11 communities that Oldhaver will visit through the "Wishes & Dreams" tour. It started September 4 in Regina and it will wrap up September 18 in Saskatoon.
Fundraisers like the upcoming Wishmaker Walk for Wishes, which will happen in Estevan on Saturday, September 21, play an important role in the foundation being able to fulfill its mandate.
