Wish Kid Ambassador Jessie Woodford

Just three days after originally posting the article below, donations have poured in, almost doubling Jessie’s original goal of $500. This has energized her to strive even higher. Jessie has raised her personal goal to $2500.

Jessie Woodford, the daughter of AWR Racing’s owner, Tony Woodford, is asking for your help.

Jessie is the Wish Kid Ambassador for the Make-A-Wish foundation.

During her bout of a rare cancer-like disease, called Langerhan’s Cell Histiocytosis, Jessie was granted a Wish by the Make- A -Wish Foundation. Make- A -Wish has been such a positive experience for her and her family. Now that Jessie is well again, she is giving back. Read Jessie’s personal story here.

Through Rancho Buena Vista High School’s Internship program, Jessie has started a Kids for Wish Kids Club at her school. She is committed to raising money for the Make- A -Wish Foundation and sharing the Power of a Wish.

Jessie will be participating with others from her school in the Walk For Wishes, benefiting the Make- A -Wish Foundation of San Diego.

Jessie is asking for donations to help her with her personal goal of raising $2500 and her team goal of $5000. Any amount is appreciated!
