A high school football player gets to meet his NFL idol, and a young Formula 1 fan gets to attend a U.S. Grand Prix race, these are two of the wishes granted this past year with the help of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Northeast New York. Make-A-Wish grants nearly 100 wishes of children and teenagers with life-threatening medical conditions every year throughout Eastern and Northern New York. CEO Bill Trigg and the Director of Mission Delivery Caryn Anatriello join us to talk about the organization’s Adopt-A-Wish Christmas campaign to raise awareness and donations.
