Make-A-Wish® Foundation Honors Supervisor Roberts
On March 11, 2009, the San Diego Chapter of the Make-A-Wish® Foundation honored Supervisor Roberts for his many years of support. In 2008, Supervisor Roberts was asked to deliver the San Diego Chapter's 2,000th wish. Now celebrating its 25th year in San Diego, the Foundation expects to grant 2,500 wishes before 2010.
Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® has enriched the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work. The Foundation's mission reflects the life-changing impact that a Make-A-Wish® experience has on children, families, referral sources, donors, sponsors and entire communities.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation was founded in 1980 after a little boy named Chris Greicius realized his heartfelt wish to become a police officer. Since its humble beginnings, the organization has blossomed into a worldwide phenomenon, reaching more than 167,000 children around the world.
