Kids Wish Network Takes the Field and the Rock

“Business Takes the Field”, an annual multi-chamber tradeshow will be hosted by nine Pinellas County Chambers of Commerce at Tropicana Field. The event, which will take place on Tuesday, July 11, will have over 300 exhibitors and is expected to draw a crowd of 1500.

Kids Wish Network is an Oldsmar-based, nonprofit organization who grants wishes to children who are living with life-threatening illnesses. As part of “Business Takes The Field”, the charity is enticing local celebrities with a challenge-should they choose to accept it-to meet the Rock, a 3000 pound, 24 foot tall structure.

EverClimb USA, in conjunction with Team Experience Inc. will join Kids Wish Network to offer the opportunity to preview rock climbing, just one of the exciting activities scheduled for its annual fund raiser, Team Wish Challenge. Team Wish Challenge will be held at the University of South Florida’s beautiful Riverfront Challenge Course on March 10, 2000. Employees from company sponsored teams will gain valuable team building skills through participation in rock climbing as well as crazy canoeing and corporate ropes courses.

Sponsorship opportunities are still available for Team Wish Challenge. Information can be obtained by calling Kids Wish Network’s Public Relations Department at (813) 891-9374.

If you know of a child between the ages of 3 and 18 who is living with a life-threatening illness and may be in need of wish granting services, please call Kids Wish Network toll free at (888) 918-9004.
