At Medal Dash, we are passionate about making a positive impact by supporting non-profit organizations with all of our events. We have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars over the past few years for charities including K9s For Warriors, Make A Wish, Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund and Feeding America. Join us in our mission to support these worthy organizations and create positive change in the world.
Our first wish comes from 6 year old Tori W.inHuntsville, TX who was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2017 and faced other critical illnesses along the way. Tori loves baking and wished for a playhouse so she could bake her very own mudpies and spend time with her sister. On the afternoon of her reveal a limo brought Tori and her family home where the ultimate dream playhouse was revealed.
Our second wish comes from 18 year old Mariana. Originally from Guatemala, she moved to Houston, TX with her mom after being diagnosed with leukemia. Between routine hospital visits and chemotherapy treatment, Mariana dreamed of being reunited with her siblings and dad on a tropical beach vacation. When approached by Make-A-Wish to have her one wish come true, Mariana wished to visit Hawaii with her family. Once in Hawaii, Mariana and her family went hiking, attended a luau and even had the chance to swim with dolphins!
Our third wish comes from 8-year-old Kindi in Baytown, TX. Kindi battles cystic
fibrosis, but that doesn't stop her from enjoying her favorite activity--running. She loves being outside and tracking her weekly miles. When she's not running, she loves gymnastics, doing her hair and make-up and playing with her Yorkie, Buzz.
When it came to having her wish granted, Kindi knew that she wanted to experience the magic only a place like Disney World can offer! She had
the most incredible trip with her family and wore the biggest smile on her face each day. Kindi's Mom shared that they are "forever grateful" for the time spent together and memories made on this trip!
