2017 RAFTING FOR WISHES - RAFTING FOR 30 HOURS - CELEBRATING 30 YEARS OF WISHES

 

We raft so they can wish!

 

We are looking to have 10 or more teams join us aboard our Floatilla. Get registered TODAY. Fundraising and FUN can be had all year long leading up to the event.

 

Take the "Rafting for Wishes" Challenge. Get your team together today and relay raft for 30 hours!

 

As we celebrate our milestone year at Make-A-Wish New Hampshire, we are incorporating our 30 year theme into many of the things we do this year.  The rafting event really lends itself to be part of our "30 years" theme.  This years Rafting for Wishes event is slated for Friday, July 21st through Saturday, July 22nd. In honor of 30 years of bringing wishes to life in New Hampshire, our teams of participants will be on rafts in Meredith Bay for 30 hours! We plan to conclude the event with a fun thank you celebration in Hesky Park on Saturday evening.

 

Take the challenge, create your team today and join in on all the fun! We are looking for teams of rafters, relay rafting, for 30 hours. Here’s how it works - Each team will be comprised of at least 10 team members, competing in a rafting relay to keep the raft occupied for 30 hours. Each team member is tasked with raising a minimum of $300 each. We suggest having two team members on the raft at all times to help with team spirit. We encourage you and your team to PICK A NAME and CREATE A THEME!

 

Prizes will be awarded for BEST TEAM SPIRIT and BEST COSTUMES/THEME. In year's past we had big burly firefighters dressed as princesses...this is still one of our favorite memories!

 

Make-A-Wish® New Hampshire has kids waiting for their wish to be granted and YOU can be a part of this exciting event and create a life-affirming wish experience for these children, changing their lives - forever.

Make-A-Wish®

Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. According to a 2011 study of wish impact, health professionals surveyed say a wish come true can affect their health outcomes. Kids say wishes give them renewed strength to fight their illness, and their parents say these experiences strengthen the entire family. Locally, Make-A-Wish New Hampshire was founded in December of 1986. Celebrating 30 years of serving children in every municipality in the Granite State, Make-A-Wish New Hampshire has granted over 1,400 wishes, granting a wish every 4 days.
