Our chapter sends two local wish kids to Phoenix for Super Bowl XLIX

In late January, Make-A-Wish® will send 12 passionate football fans with life-threatening medical conditions to sunny Phoenix, Ariz., for an unforgettable Super Bowl experience. They will travel to the Phoenix metropolitan area with their families for a weekend filled with football activities that will be capped off by attending the most anticipated football game of the year - Super Bowl XLIX (49).

12-year-old Corey and 17-year-old Michael will arrive in Phoenix on Wednesday, Jan. 28. They will enjoy a welcome reception and a weekend comprised of visiting Super Bowl Central, the NFL Experience and other activities – including a private tour of the University of Phoenix Stadium – before they watch the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots battle for football supremacy in Super Bowl XLIX in Glendale, Ariz., on Sunday, Feb. 2. Corey and Michael’s wish and all of the Super Bowl wishes are made possible through the generous support of the NFL and others.

Wishes to go to the Super Bowl started appearing almost immediately after the founding of Make-A-Wish, beginning with a 12-year-old Arizona boy attending Super Bowl XVI in Pontiac, Mich., in 1982 – the 9th wish in the organization’s history. Since then, every subsequent Super Bowl has been attended by at least one wish kid, and more than 130 Super Bowl wishes have been fulfilled in the last 10 years alone. Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley thanks the NFL for helping make these impactful wishes possible.
