About Our Organization
Make-A-Wish Central & Northern Florida First Coast Region grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
The organization was founded in Arizona in 1980 after 7-year-old Chris Greicius realized his heartfelt wish to become a police officer. Since its humble beginnings, the organization has blossomed, becoming the largest wish-granting organization reaching more than 157,000 children worldwide.
Since the doors of the Central & Northern Florida Chapter opened in 1994, we have granted more than 3000 wishes in the communities we serve.
Extraordinary things happen to very sick children when they are given permission to dream about something beyond their grasp.
