Celebrating 200 wishes with Michael Jordan

Wish kid who wished to meet Michael Jordan.

“Wish kids consider him an idol, role model and are inspired by the impact he has on the game of basketball.”

Michael Jordan is considered to be the greatest basketball player of all time. He is also larger than life to the many wish kids who have requested to meet him.

Michael Jordan granted 7 wishes in Charlotte, North Carolina in November 2013, for an incredible total of 200 wishes granted.  Most of the wish kids he recently met were born after he retired from professional sports, yet the requests continue to come.  Wish kids consider him an idol, role model and are inspired by the impact he has on the game of basketball.  

Michael Jordan has graciously served as our Chief Wish Ambassador since 2008. He approaches each wish  child with his undivided attention and interest in learning more about them.  Wish experiences with Michael Jordan are typically intimate and private events just for the wish kids and their immediate family members. 

We are excited to celebrate 200 wishes granted by Michael Jordan.
