Wish kid Ava serves as the honorary captain at the Army football game

Ava, 6, "I wish to go to Disney"
Ava, a 6 year old from Dutchess county served as the final Make-A-Wish® honorary captain for the season when the Army Black Knights faced Western Kentucky. Read more...

Six-year-old Ava participated in the coin toss and chatted with the football players and referees as she was introduced as Honorary Team Captain for the day.  Ava and her family were escorted by veteran volunteer Anthony Giudice. 

Although Army lost to Western Kentucky 21-17, Ava had a great time. We wish everyone at Army Football good luck with the rest of the season as this was the last Make-A-Wish honorary captain for the year. 

Special thanks to West Point for providing these amazing experiences for our wish kids and to Anthony for the great photos!  Ava's wish to go to Disney was granted in mid-November.
