Make-A-Wish OH, KY & IN Grants 17,000 Wish - Honors wish kid Kammy

17-year-old wish kid Kammy, who battles a rare genetic disorder, loves playgrounds, especially the swings. Her face lights up every time she watches other children laughing and playing on the equipment. 

When deciding her one true wish, she knew she wanted something that would bring people of all abilities together. Her wish to give the community an inclusive swing is coming true on Friday, October 18th in Fishers, Indiana.

“We hope that this piece of inclusive playground equipment brings joy to many children and their families for many years to come,” said Kammy’s dad, Jared. “Perhaps it will spark a passion to build more inclusive playgrounds in our communities.”
