Magic in Hawai’i

nummer2

Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars? We could really use a wish right now…

Well, fortunately, shooting stars aren’t needed for wishes to come true today. Since 1980, Make-A-Wish Foundation has been granting wishes across the country for children with life-threatening medical conditions. Their mission to “enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy” by granting wishes is one that they fulfill multiple times a day. They estimate that a child’s wish is granted by Make-A-Wish every 38 minutes. From flying “wish kids” and their families to Disneyworld to enabling a wish kid to meet a “real live mermaid” or an Alaskan wolverine, Make-A-Wish enables kids to live out their dreams.

As you might have guessed, Make-A-Wish Foundation is CitySolve Urban Race’s featured charity organization for the upcoming Honolulu race on March 22. We salute the members at Make-A-Wish Honolulu who work so hard to care for the families and children in Hawai’i impacted by life-threatening medical conditions. What a privilege for us to partner with them and have a hand in granting wishes! You can check out their website at: www.wish.org.

Don’t be left out! By signing up for the CitySolve Urban Race Honolulu event, you too can participate in the magic in Hawai’i! Register here for the race to join in on the fun!

Keep Calm and Bring Hope

Esperanca is our featured charity partnership for CitySolve Urban Race Phoenix. It is a global charity organization whose goal is to “bring hope, provide health, and transform communities.” Their US program is based in Phoenix and is focused on caring for local, low-income families by preventing health problems such as obesity, oral decay, and lifestyle chronic diseases. It’s estimated that 30% of children in Arizona suffer from obesity, which can lead to heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Arizona also has the third highest untreated tooth decay for third graders in the nation. By partnering with medical clinics and dental care offices, Esperanca is able to offer low-cost services to assist families in Phoenix and provide education on healthy eating in an attempt to prevent long-term, life-threatening disease.

It’s encouraging to see a group of volunteers driven to make their city a better place. Thanks to everyone at Esperanca for their commitment and love for the community in Phoenix!

Check out their website at www.esperanca.org and be sure to Register Here for our Phoenix race! Not only will you have a blast and meet your New Year’s “work-out” resolution without even having to step foot in the gym, you’ll also be supporting the community and helping families stay healthy! See you for the race this Saturday, March 15!
