Make-A-Wish Arizona® is the founding chapter of Make-A-Wish, granting more than 5,000 wishes for Arizona wish kids since our first wish, Christopher, in 1980. Our chapter is dedicated to providing hope, strength and joy not only to our wish kids, but also to their families, communities and all our supporters who help to make a wish a reality. Read their stories of imagination and inspiration.
