“We are excited that Thunderbirds Charities sees the impact a wish can make on a child who is dealing with a critical illness,” said Elizabeth Reich, president and Chief Executive Officer of Make-A-Wish Arizona.

“A wish experience provides a child hope and joy when they need it most and this grant will assist us in continuing our mission, even during the pandemic,” she said.
