Get your tissues ready as ESPN’s sixth annual SportsCenter “My Wish” segments will air between July 17-20.
Thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, children with life-threatening medical conditions have the opportunity to live out their sports wishes.
“The My Wish series shows viewers the joyful, self-empowering impact that a wish has on each of these kids,” said David Williams, Make-A-Wish Foundation of America president and chief executive officer. “The bond that grows between the kids and their favorite athletes before our eyes is priceless. We appreciate the support and dedication that ESPN puts into each story, presenting our mission in a captivating way no one else can.”
“It was a privilege for us to sit in the living rooms of these amazing young people and their resourceful, loving families to hear their stories of courage and perseverance,” Connelly said. “I think viewers will enjoy seeing them interact with the athletes they have so long admired…it is going to be special for everyone.”
