Including Garret Lee, an 18-year-old Arizona resident who has a nervous system disorder, Make-A-Wish Arizona sends 20 wish kids to the big game on Sunday.

Beginning on Wednesday, February 7, and culminating with the big game on Sunday, February 11, the National Football League (NFL) along with other corporate partners, have curated a memorable series of events for Garrett, the other wish kids, and their families. The activities include:

  • Wednesday, Feb. 7: Make-A-Wish and Fanatics will treat the wish families to a welcome party at Topgolf.
  • Thursday, Feb. 8: Fanatics has some NFL player-sized surprises in store for the wish families when they visit the Lids flagship store followed by a local card shop where they’ll get a trading card experience unlike any other. In the evening, the NFL will host the wish kids at NFL Honors, where they will get to feel like celebrities as they walk the red carpet.
  • Friday, Feb. 9: The NFL will host wish families at Allegiant Stadium for a behind-the-scenes tour and have free time to show off their football skills at the Super Bowl Experience.
  • Saturday, Feb. 10: Fanatics will host the wish families at their Las Vegas facility before the families explore the mysterious world of Meow Wolf.
  • Sunday, Feb. 11: The wish experience will culminate in the wish kids taking their seats in Allegiant Stadium to watch as the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs go head-to-head in pursuit of the coveted Vince Lombardi Trophy.

Fran Mallace, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish Arizona announced, “The record number of wishes being granted at the Super Bowl speaks to the powerful role that football plays in the lives of wish kids who draw inspiration and joy from watching their favorite players and teams.”

Since Make-A-Wish Arizona teamed up with the NFL to provide wish kids with a trip to the Super Bowl starting in 1982, 300 wishes have been granted at the Super Bowl.
