What Can A Child Wish For?

The child's imagination is always the driving force in determining, designing and coordinating a life-altering wish experience.

While most wish requests fall into five major categories, the possibilities are endless because wish kids are so creative and inspired by the chance to have a wish experience:

  • I wish to go …
    Some Make-A-Wish® kids want to travel to their favorite theme park, while others want to visit an exotic beach, go on a cruise, see snow for the first time or attend a major sporting event or concert.
  • I wish to be …
    Children search the depths of their imagination when they wish to be someone for a day – a fireman, a police officer, a model or a superhero.
  • I wish to meet …
    Around 1,000 wish kids each year meet their favorite athlete, recording artist, television personality, movie star, politician or other public figure.
  • I wish to have …
    Children sometimes wish for a special gift, such as a computer, a tree house, a shopping spree or something they have wanted for a long time.
  • I wish to give …
    Some wish kids use their wish to make the world better – raising funds, helping improve their school or celebrating a holiday for their family are just a few of the ways wish kids have helped others.

  • In 1985, 10-year-old Brian from Gillette wished to have a BMX bike. Brian's wish was not only the first wish granted by Make-A-Wish Wyoming, but it began a legacy of serving children with critical medical conditions across the state for years to come. In celebration of Brian's wish, Make-A-Wish Wyoming hosts Tour de Wish, a series of 5k ride, run, and walk events in communities across Wyoming. Thank you for joining the tour- today, you are a wish granter.
