Thank you, New England Patriots

Go Pats! As the New England Patriots take to the field for the big game in Houston, we’ll be cheering on the home team!

NEwMichael_312x214Since 1996, the Patriots have granted wishes for children from Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and beyond. 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 -- and good luck in Houston!


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