Every 37 minutes Make-A-Wish® grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories. The New Mexico chapter was established in 1986, and in January of 1987 we granted our first Wish for Donovan, who Wished for his very own bicycle. In the past 30 years we have granted more than 1800 Wishes to New Mexico children! We are incredibly grateful to our donors, supporters and volunteers who have helped to make our success possible as we strive to reach as many eligible New Mexico children as possible…THANK YOU!
