Make-A-Wish® Rope for Hope

Make-A-Wish® Rope for Hope is a unique challenge event that calls on participants to raise pledges in exchange for a once-in-a-lifetime experience to rappel down the edge of a high profile building across Canadian sites.

All money raised by Make-A-Wish® Rope for Hope rappellers goes to granting the wishes of children with critical illnesses.

This Holiday Season, Give the Gift of a Wish

The holiday season is a time for giving and celebrating. At Make-A-Wish it's a time when individuals, corporations and foundations get in the spirit of giving and supporting our wish granting mission.

World Wish Day 2020

April 29 is World Wish Day, an annual day of recognition and celebration of the wish granted to Chris Grecius in 1980 that inspired the creation of Make-A-Wish® and its mission.
