Super Bowl XLVII: Make a Wish Foundation Stadium Tour

On Friday, February 1st, Chris Draft Family Foundation Founder Chris Draft will take Make a Wish Children, along with the Make a Wish  Foundation Members, on a tour of the Mercedes Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. This year the Superdome will be hosting Superbowl XLVII, which will be a match-up between Draft's former team, the San Francisco 49ers, and the Baltimore Ravens. Make-A-Wish® is bringing its own team to New Orleans in the form of 12 kids with life-threatening medical conditions who wished to attend Super Bowl XLVII.  For the wish kids who will be in attendance, attending the Super Bowl represents their one, heartfelt wish; however, the positive impact of a wish-come-true begins long before kickoff. Wish kids often say the anticipation of their wish helps them find strength to continue medical treatments and the memories of the experience itself serve as a constant source of hope and joy.
