Want to help Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses? Then get ready to go 'Over the Edge' in downtown Austin on June 8-9th! Get yourself and your team registered for the 9th Annual event, and you can go Over The Edge 32 stories down 600 Congress Avenue. Over 700 wishes have been granted from this event alone! The average cost to grant a child a wish is around $5-$7k and Make-A-Wish Central and South Texas is completely nonprofit, so let's help fund this caring organization and beat its number of 302 granted wishes last year.


Jill Skinner, Communications Director of Make-A-Wish Central and South Texas, stopped by Local Insights to break down Over the Edge and how you can be a part of Make-A-Wish Central and South Texas. She shares the story of the Doctor who did a study that found, "research shows that wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that can give children with critical illnesses a higher chance of survival." How awesome is that?!? Spread the word and make plans to go Over The Edge June 8-9th to help Make-A-Wish Central and South Texas grant more wishes for kids dealing with critical illnesses!

Hurry up and get registered! The first 200 individuals to raise a minimum of $1,500 will earn a spot to go Over The Edge for Make-A-Wish Central and South Texas.
