Wings for Wishes

Dear Detroit Red Wings Fans,

Welcome to the team's Make-A-Wish® fundraising page for the Wings for Wishes initiative. The Detroit Red Wings are dedicated to making a difference in our local community and those around the country, particularly when it comes to fans facing life-threatening medical conditions. The Red Wings are proud supporters of Make-A-Wish Michigan and have welcomed many wish kids to Joe Louis Arena to meet their hockey heroes.

The Red Wings are asking for your support with our Wings for Wishes initiative and to help us "Adopt-A-Wish" through this online fundraiser. The average cost to fulfill a wish is $5,000 - $7,500.

The team welcomed six-year-old Owen to a Red Wings practice on Oct. 30, 2014. Owen was on the ice with the entire Red Wings team and got to shoot on Jimmy Howard. He even went with the Red Wings netminder to get his hair cut by Howard's own hair stylist later that afternoon! The next day, Owen watched the team warmup from the Red Wings penalty box and saw the Wings-Kings game on Halloween. His mom Heidi wrote: "Once we got in the locker room, Owen was in another world. I don't think he has ever been further away from his daily grind of therapies and medications than he was that morning, checking out the locker room, hanging out with the players, and practicing with the team on Joe Louis ice. For a couple hours that morning, cystic fibrosis simply didn't exist. ... We were a little afraid that there would be a down period when we got back from our trip, but it has been the exact opposite. Owen talks about practicing with the Wings just about every day and says it was his best day ever."
