Homecoming Charity: Make A Wish Foundation

by Daniel Skora, Shyla Harless, and Abby Ellinghausen

The Make A Wish Foundation, a network of nearly 25,000 volunteers, works to give strength and happiness to children who have terminal or life-threatening illnesses.
Three-year-old Treiton Davis, brother of freshman Trenton Davis, has complex congenital heart disease, and has had ten open heart surgeries.
Treiton’s wish was granted and he and his family were able to spend a week at the Give Kids the World Village in Walt Disney World.
Student Council will be walking in the Homecoming Parade on Friday with the Davis family as well as the family of Bri McQueen, who also had her wish granted.
Student Council will be selling bracelets, stars and painting faces at the Homecoming game in order raise money for the Make A Wish Foundation.
