Kids for Wish Kids®


They did it again. Shattering last year's record, students across the state are making a difference for wish kids in their communities.

Sweetwater County, population just over 40,000, has a group of students who are passionate about granting wishes.  The three high schools in Rock Springs, Green River, and Farson-Eden teamed up to grant 14 wishes of Wyoming children this year.  Twelve year old Catherine was one of those wish kids.

Catherine lives in Rock Springs, and in September of 2012, she was diagnosed with a rare form of lymphoma.  Catherine started treatments right away.  When Catherine was asked, "if you could have one wish, what would it be?" She knew exactly what she wanted, a show horse.  She has always wanted to compete in riding competitions, but she needed the right horse.  

That May, Magic arrived in Catherine's hometown.  Magic is a show horse trained in Western and Dressage riding, and his name says it all. 

Thirteen other children will have magical wish experiences like Catherine's, because of the students of Sweetwater County. 

Other schools across the state are also making wishes come true. Powell High School and Kelly Walsh High School each raised enough to grant three wishes, a school record for each.  Natrona County High School and Cody High School each granted a wish as well. 

Thank you to all of the students across the state who participated in the Kids For Wish Kids program this year!

Latest Status Update

  • Alexis-Hope from Cheyenne, Wyoming had her wish to go to Disney World granted in 2016. She has a very special message for the volunteers involved in the process! During National Volunteer Week, we are celebrating the individuals that make wishes happen. Without the help of our volunteers, we wouldn't be able to grant wishes to all of the eligible children around the state. For more information on how to volunteer, visit us at:
