The Players Challenge features Rams players, Cheerleaders and Mascot Rampage who will compete for tips in the form of “Wish Bucks” in exchange for autographs, photos and fun! Plus experience heartfelt stories about the wish children whose lives have been touched by the power of a wish. All money raised stays local to grant the wishes of children in our community battling life-threatening medical conditions.

Mission: Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.

Watch the video to see how Make-A-Wish began with one child’s simple wish to be a police officer.

Every 38 minutes Make-A-Wish® grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories.

We believe that a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides us in everything we do. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve.

Make-A-Wish® Tri-Counties was founded in 1985 and was inspired by Jon’s heartfelt wish to go to the Kennedy Space Center. Since then, we have granted over 1,850 wishes. Our chapter serves 3 counties along California’s Central Coast. We have two offices – our main office in Camarillo and a regional office in Santa Barbara. All the monies raised here helps grant wishes to children right here in our communities. The average cost of a travel wish is $10,000. The whole family, including siblings, are a part of the wish, and there is no cost to the family. In 2019, our chapter has a goal of granting over 80 wishes and we need you to make that happen. Children with the help of volunteer wish granters determine a child’s most heartfelt wish. The one thing that will inspire, encourage and bring joy.

Wishes fall into one of five categories:
I wish to go, to be, to have, to meet or the rare wish to give to other’s benefit.

A wish come true empowers a child with a life-threatening medical condition to fight harder against their Illness. When they are granted a wish, they receive more than just a great experience for a moment, a day, or a week. Wishes create memories that last forever and can have a transformative impact on the quality of life for the child and the entire family. 89% of medical professionals believe that a wish can positively influence a child’s physical health.
