On October 29th, the BC & Yukon Chapter joined Children’s Wish chapters across the country to launch the More Wishes, More Wonders Campaign, to announce our new expanded wish granting criteria.

The BC & Yukon team partnered with the team at SKY Helicopters to create a special day for 12 year-old Alexa and her family. As she suffers from a very rare genetic condition with symptoms similar to severe cerebral palsy, Alexa would not have previously been eligible for a wish, so she was the perfect Wish child to help get the campaign off the ground… literally!

Thanks to our friends at SKY Helicopters, Pitt Meadows airport, and some weather that cleared up just in time, Alexa and her family were able to experience a once-in-a-lifetime helicopter tour of their hometown. Watch their video (click on the image to view).
