  •  be inducted into the Circle of Champions at a luncheon with a surprise WWE Superstar at the Liberty Science Center on Saturday, April 6;
  • attend the biggest fan event of the year, Fan Axxess, on Sunday, April 7.

WWE has been a supporter of Make-A-Wish for more than 30 years and is host to some of the most dedicated wish granters in the organization’s history. WWE’s popularity transcends generations, and accordingly, the wishes its talent have helped grant number in the thousands. WWE also has given a multi-year commitment to continue its support of Make-A-Wish and its wish-granting activities.

“The anticipation is building for what we know will be an incredible experience for James.  All of the wishes we grant for courageous children with life-threatening medical conditions provide wish kids and their families a break from treatment and give them a chance to return from their wish energized and inspired. It can be a life-changing experience,” said John J. Brennan, CEO of Make-A-Wish Georgia. “Make-A-Wish is fortunate to have WWE as a supporter who believes so strongly in our mission.”
