Little Wish Foundation - 30 MILES IN THIRTY DAYS
Little Wish Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that grants wishes to children battling cancer. It was started in 2010 by seventeen year-old Liz Niemiec after witnessing her friend, Max, lose his battle with cancer. Max’s last little wish was a puppy and Liz saw what happiness it brought him. This planted the idea of Little Wish.
The wishes we grant are, as our name implies, modest. Most cost between $500 and $1,000. These wishes may be small, but the impact on children’s lives is immeasurable. They help the children to focus on something happy and positive. To a child undergoing difficult cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation, receiving a wish of a gaming system, a new pet, a Lego set, or a doll can truly change their experience.
