It was just a handful of dedicated individuals who pulled together the organization we know today. For each of the founders, the beginning of the local chapter was a stirring time, experienced differently by all three.
Penni remembers their car trips south to Make-A-Wish Oregon, who played an instrumental role in helping our chapter get off the ground.In an odd twist of fate, Greg's own three-year-old son was diagnosed with Leukemia just a few years after he helped to cofound the chapter. His ties to Make-A-Wish then became even more meaningful as one of his fellow Make-A-Wish board colleagues became his son's physician.
Bob recalls one of the earliest wish kids: Armando, from Central Washington, who wished to meet the world famous WWE superstar: Hulk Hogan. He will never forget the moment Hulk wrapped his championship belt around Armando's waist. Inspiring memories like these propelled the local chapter to the success that it enjoys today.
