A Sporting Wish for Pennsylvania Boy

JOHNSTOWN, Pa. (October 2019): Blake loves everything about sports and suffers from an autoimmune condition. Whenever he’s outside, he is playing or practicing, and when he’s inside, he is reading about sports or watching them on television. Blake is always on the lookout for new sports equipment, so Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses, purchased generous gift cards to DICK’S Sporting Goods and Rally House. Rally House also donated extra store credit for Blake to use with his gift card so he could purchase even more of his favorite things. He can’t wait to use his gift cards to purchase new sporting gear and apparel featuring his favorite teams and athletes.

“Blake’s wish will enable him to further enjoy the things that bring him a positive focus,” said Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai.

Kids Wish Network is a national charitable organization dedicated to infusing hope, creating happy memories, and improving the quality of life for children with life-threatening conditions and struggling with life-altering situations. KWN provides for trip expenses, meals, accommodations and additional spending monies to all wish families whenever traveling as applicable.
