We are excited to celebrate YOU and the life-changing experiences that you bring to children with critical illnesses!

Join us on Tuesday, February 28 from 7 PM to 7:50 PM on Zoom for a program celebrating you — our annual Volunteer Recognition: Creating Health, Heart and Hope.

Meet Emcee Carmen DeFalco, ESPN Chicago (pictured below left) co-host of the highly rated “Carmen, Jurko, and Harry Show” and wish uncle to alumni Michael and Dylan. Carmen will interview two of our wish alumni about the power of resilience in their wish journeys.

Meet Featured Speaker Paula Davis, CEO of the Stress & Resilience Institute (pictured below right) who will invite you into an interactive presentation to explore the health and wellbeing impacts of volunteering as part of creating “Bigger than Self” goals.

Make-A-Wish Illinois leaders Stephanie Springs, CEO and Mark Chong, Chair, Board of Directors will also share messages of appreciation and recognition for all that you do.

This evening will also be the kickoff of our Volunteer Awards program and include drawings for several unique prizes.

Registration is free. Advance registration is required to attend.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Currently, registration is available only for current Make-A-Wish Illinois volunteers. If you would like to refer someone to learn more about volunteering, encourage them to visit our website to sign up for an upcoming volunteer orientation.
