Thank you, New England Patriots

Go Pats! As the New England Patriots take to the field for Super Bowl XLIX, we’ll be cheering on the home team!

NEwMichael_312x214Since 1996, the Patriots have granted wishes for children from Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and beyond. In 2014, the team granted 10 wishes, its biggest year of wishes yet!

We salute the Kraft Family and the Patriots players, staff, and management for their partnership in providing joy and inspiration to children facing serious illness. Thank you, New England Patriots, for being true champions of the Make-A-Wish mission!


Share in the joy by taking a look at a few of our favorite Patriots wishes below:

Michael_72x72Michael, "I wish to meet Tom Brady!"
Running across the pristine game field at Gillette Stadium, Michael’s grin is as wide as his outstretched arms ready to catch a football. Just six years old, this aspiring athlete is a devout New England Patriots fan, and this is the most memorable pass he’s ever received...

Cole with GronkowskiCole, "I wish to meet Rob Gronkowski!" 
When 14-year-old Cole wished to meet New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, he could never have imagined the many surprises awaiting him... Read Cole's wish story.

Joey_Patriots 72x72Joey, "I wish to go to the Patriots team training camp!"
Joey's team spirit is stronger than ever thanks to his wish. For the teen, who had to cease his own athletic activities due to a neuro-muscular disorder, it was a thrill beyond belief to watch his favorite players prepare for their upcoming season... Watch Joey's wish video.
