Since receiving its charter in 1986, Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley has granted the wishes of more than 2,200 children in the Hudson Valley region with life-threatening medical conditions. Wishes are more than just a nice thing. A wish experience can be a game-changer for a child with a life-threatening medical condition. This one belief guides us in everything we do at Make-A-Wish®. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve. It compels us to be creative in exceeding the expectations of every wish kid. It drives us to make our donated resources go as far as possible. Most of all, it's the founding principle of our vision to grant the wish of every eligible child. At Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley we work every day to fulfill the Make-A-Wish® Mission: We grant wishes of children with life threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy.
