FUNDRAISING HERO: Jenks student Jake Mulready was the leader in the Make-A-Wish campaign this year.

Jenks High School students came to the forefront by helping to raise $33,162 for Make-A-Wish to help grant wishes for children with critical illnesses. Jenks student Jake Mulready led the Jenks School District in DUB Week to raise the funds for the Make-A-Wish Oklahoma foundation. DUB is an acronym for “Donate Ur Bucks.”
Gifts made through this fundraising campaign are a gift to the entire Make-A-Wish mission. The needs shown are symbolic of the common wish elements associated with each wish and are only representative of the many wish-granting activities. Gifts made are truly appreciated. All gifts will be pooled to meet the needs of Make-A-Wish.
A representative from Make-A-Wish says, “It’s truly amazing what wishes can do… give kids renewed energy and strength, bring families closer together and unite communities. Wish kids are some of the bravest and sweetest kids you’ll ever know. They wish to work in a pickle factory, become a superhero, go snorkeling, give their baseball team new uniforms, and push all the buttons in a tall building’s elevator.”
The fundraising goal was announced at Jenks High School in late February.
Make-A-Wish grants thousands of unique wishes each year. But for every wish granted, another eligible child is waiting for their wish to come true.
Together, we can grant more wishes. Please donate today.
