2021 Make-A-Wish® Colorado Statewide Virtual Wish Week
April 12-17, 2021

In order to raise vital funds for Make-A-Wish Colorado, the Youth Leadership Council is hosting a Statewide Virtual Wish Week. This event will engage communities and students from across the entire state in daily activities and fundraising efforts all week long!

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 the wishes of kids in our community.

Due to COVID-19, there are more wish kids waiting for their life-changing wish than ever before... almost 450 kids across the state. Your support will ensure that Make-A-Wish Colorado is able to grant all local wishes as they come in, as well as prepare for the day to safely grant the wishes that have been postponed because of COVID-19. 

Make-A-Wish Colorado is 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 the fundraising efforts.

The Youth Leadership Council is an elite group of 47 high school students from across the front range who work to spread awareness and raise vital funds for Make-A-Wish® Colorado and their mission to create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Members of the Youth Leadership Council learn valuable skills in philanthropy, teamwork, and leadership while volunteering with a world-renowned organization and giving back to children with critical illnesses from their own community.
