The Make-A-Wish foundation all started with just one wish.

The Creator and a Founder of The Make a Wish Foundation, Frank Shankwitz presents his story and how one boy inspired him 37 years ago.

Frank was one of the primary officers from the Arizona Highway Patrol who was responsible for granting the “wish” of a 7-year old boy with leukemia, who wanted to be a Highway Patrol Motorcycle Officer like his heroes, Ponch and John from the television show, “CHiPs”. Chris was made the first and only Honorary Arizona Highway Patrol Officer in the history of the Arizona Highway Patrol, complete with a custom made uniform, badge, and Motor Officer Wings.

Chris was the inspiration for Frank’s idea to start a non-profit foundation that would let children ‘make a wish‘ and have it come true. Granting over 415,000 wishes thus far.

Hear the story come to life on February 11th starting with entertainment by Travis Hosette at 3pm.
