Make-A-Wish Foundation Honors WWE and WWE Superstar John Cena for Their Commitment to Wish-Granting
PHOENIX--Today, the Make-A-Wish Foundation honored WWE Superstar John Cena and WWE for their contributions to wish kids by dedicating a WWE-themed conference room in the charity's global headquarters.
"WWE wishes have been popular since early in the Foundation's history and we are proud to count the WWE and its Superstars as longtime supporters"
John Cena is on pace to grant 300 wishes to kids with life-threatening medical conditions, making him the first celebrity wish granter ever to reach that lofty goal. In 2009, John Cena received the Foundation's "Chris Greicius Award" for his outstanding efforts on behalf of wish kids.
Recently, John Cena teamed up with Post Foods to prominently display the Make-A-Wish Foundation alongside his image on newly designed boxes of Post Fruity Pebbles Cereal, which are available nationwide through March.
WWE and WWE Superstars have been granting wishes with the Make-A-Wish Foundation for more than 30 years and have donated a significant amount of funds to help cover costs associated with many of those wishes. In addition to John Cena, WWE and its talent have received the "Chris Greicius Award" award four additional times.
"WWE wishes have been popular since early in the Foundation's history and we are proud to count the WWE and its Superstars as longtime supporters," said David Williams, President and Chief Executive Officer for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America. "John Cena's commitment to our mission and his connection with our wish kids make him one of our best wish ambassadors. We are grateful for everything John and WWE have done, and we look forward to them granting many more wishes in the future."
John Cena continues to be one of the most frequently requested celebrity wishes. Tonight, John Cena is scheduled to grant two wishes at WWE Monday Night Raw at US Airways Center in Phoenix, AZ.
