Five inspirational wish stories are featured through January 2.
ESPN is re-airing the popular "My Wish" series from this past summer throughout the holidays and into the New Year. The one-hour special includes wishes with the Seattle Seahawks, the Arizona Diamondbacks, the New England Patriots, the Washington Redskins, tennis pro Roger Federer and NASCAR’s Kasey Kahne. Please check your local listings at ESPN's SportsCenter.com.
Imagine waking up one morning to find out that you get to meet your favorite athlete. Imagine tossing a football with your NFL idol, or going up to bat with your favorite MLB team. Imagine how your whole life would change in that moment. Five wish kids not only imagined these things, they lived them, and their stories will be shared in a one-hour SportsCenter special on ESPN.
From NASCAR to tennis from the NFL to Major League Baseball, the sports-themed wishes granted by Make-A-Wish® begin airing Monday, Dec. 23, on ESPN2 and ESPNEWS, and will run over the next 11 days. The ESPN "My Wish" series profiles wishes as they come true for children with life-threatening medical conditions. Each segment takes viewers on an in-depth and often emotional journey into the children’s lives, medical conditions, their wish-reveals and the transformative wish experiences they have with their favorite athletes or teams.
Emmy Award-winning reporter Chris Connelly will again host with participation from the following wish granters: Seattle Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson, the Arizona Diamondbacks, Washington Redskins Quarterback Robert Griffin, III, NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne and tennis star Roger Federer.
