Sometimes, it takes a champion’s effort to change someone’s life. Pro-wrestler John Cena has aligned with the Make a Wish Foundation for many years to do just that.
The Make a Wish Foundation grants wishes to children who are disabled or are facing other health challenges. Their official mission is to “grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy,” according to their website. They grant wishes in order to provide “a source of inspiration for children undergoing difficult medical treatments.”
Make a Wish has branches across the U.S. They receive funds from individual donors, corporations, and other organizations.
Cena frequently assists children who write to Make-a-Wish, hoping to change their life. He has granted over 300 wishes, according to the WWE's website.
He visits fans in addition to competing in big matches. This year was no exception. The 37 year-old, who joined the WWE in 1999, proved that he is the ultimate champion in wrestling. The All-star pro-wrestler held onto his heavyweight title at WWE Battleground on July 20 in Tampa, according to Hollywood Life. Cena battled Randy Orton, Kane, and Roman Reigns 4Way match.
He has taken a long journey since appearing with Mikey Richardson in WWE’s SmackDown. Cena also appeared in the 2009 film 12 Rounds.
Cena also strongly believes in the power of a wish. We’ll look forward to seeing Cena’s continued dedication to the organization and his fans in years to come.
