Make-A-Wish Arizona® is the founding chapter of Make-A-Wish, granting more than 6,000 wishes for Arizona wish kids since our inspiration wish, Christopher, in 1980. Our chapter's goal is to create transformational and personal wishes for our wish kids, as well as their families, their communities and our supporters who help to make each wish a reality. Read their stories of imagination and inspiration.
