The Latest from Make-A-Wish Foundation Singapore

It’s been a great year for the Make-A-Wish Foundation in Singapore, an organization Anthony S Casey is proud to be a part of.

 

Anthony would like to share the story of Raphael.

Raphael was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, but it hasn’t stopped him from being his hyper and active self.  When his Wish Granters discovered his dream about an awesome Nerf War Party, they dreamed up the best wish day ever.

With a lot of encouragement from Raphael’s class teacher and principal, his school hall into an Nerf War Boot Camp.

Complete with obstacle courses, camouflage netting and Nerf guns, the boot camp was actually one big surprise. During a phys. ed class, he was completely taken aback. He walked into the hall; instead of gym class, a nerf war party!

It wasn’t easy, either. The obstacles required jumping, crawling, balancing, throwing and marksmanship training with Nerf guns.

On his Wish Day, Raphael was escorted by a convoy of Land Rovers to his wish party venue. Outfitted in a soldier’s uniform tailored to his size and sporting a beret, Raphael looked very much the part of a soldier defending his country against the “red army”.  Thanks to his Wish Granters Christie, Jonathan and Hao Ren, Land Rover Singapore for the spectacular convoy, and the dozens of volunteers who made the Nerf war party a memorable one for Raphael to cherish.
