Make-A-Wish creates life changing wishes for kiwi children battling critical illnesses.

At least one family will sit in a doctor’s office today and be told their child has a critical illness. That means by Christmas, more than 365 New Zealand children and teenagers will receive this devastating news. 

Each year we grant around 180 to 200 wishes so currently we’re only delivering to around half the number of eligible children.  

Money raised during Over the Edge For Wishes will go towards granting more wishes.
